My reason behind learning BSL

Recommended Posts

I have always been interested in learning to sign, but became really dedicated to learning BSL properly when I met my partner who is deaf; although she communicates really well verbally she also likes to use BSL alongside this, and sometimes this is an easier way for us to communicate depending what setting were in/noise levels etc. As well as this my partner has a lot of deaf friends who all use BSL, so through starting this course it enables me to communicate with them a lot better and understand what's being said in conversations, although I'm still getting used to how fast some people sign! I am also starting a Nursing degree soon, so feel being able to sign would be beneficial for my career and for supporting/ interpreting for those that do have a hearing impairment :)
