Hello everybody

Recommended Posts

I am new to this page and BSL. I started an online course a while back but life interupted and I stopped studying. I am a teaching assitant and just recently finished my Level 2 course of that. After all the assignments and work I had to do for that I realised I enjoyed that. I didn't know what I could learn next when two days ago in the school I work we had visitors one of them was a pupil with her interpreteur. And that's when I remembered my online BSL course.

I am originally from Germany and a distant cousin (possibly a third I find the system of cousins confusing ;)) is Deaf and speaks German Sign Language, but prefers when with hearing people to lip read. I was always facinated when I watched him sign with others but I never thought I might should learn it. It has been a while that I saw him, we email regular.
I am thirty, have a dog and a cat and are friendly and open towards everyone. Hopefully once I can sign more again I hope I can find someone to have coffees and sign. I am in Bridgend, Wales and would love to meet new people.

    • An article in The Independent a few days ago that shares the news that the government is "open to considering" a new GCSE in British Sign Language.  This came after 35,000 signatures were collected in a campaign to see BSL taught more widely in schools. You can read the full article here: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/education/education-news/british-sign-language-gcse-government-nick-gibb-campaign-school-a8377466.html
    • A lovely suprise for this couple when they realised that the stewardess on their Philippine Airlines flight could sign! Wouldn't it be wonderful to see more of this kind of inclusion everywhere. Great customer service.
    • Hi Anyone know if there is a practice group or similar somewhere in Great Yarmouth or surrounding areas, most places seem to be around the Norwich area? I am currently doing level 2 and really need more receptive practice
    • Hey peeps Ive just done a first year of BSL to keep up with my 11 year old daughter who has cochlear implants. I found watching the DVD part of the level 1 exam too hard but everyone just said get on with it. It was like teh Emperor's New Clothes scenario. So what happens this week, it is announced that the video was in fact for level 2 students. Thankyou! But bizzarely we still watched it as a group and with some support I got there. But it is all a bit of a muddle if you ask me. Anyone else have this prob?
