BSL in Medicine

Hello! My name is Cecylia and I'm a doctor, trying to learn BSL in my spare time. I've learned the basics of ASL but since moving to the UK, I've had to start from scratch - but well worth the effort. I hope to be able to communicate with my patients without the use of an interpreter in the near future!

Hello I’m starting from a low level I have the alphabet down as off the moment and over the course of this month would like to learn family and greetings section of my course. If you would be interested in learning at a set time gradually over a few weeks let me know with a reply and availability. My hours are late to early morning on work days and depending how early I’m notified any hours on my days off. I can only project my weeks availability one week at a time from Sunday onwards due to work and my shifts are random. I could use a real life person to practise what I learn back and forth with. Best of luck ,

regards Tony

    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills. 
    • I don’t have a great answer, as many do that I have read here. I am just enjoying learning new things, I want to be able to be inclusive when possible and generally just fascinated when I see people having conversations in sign.
    • Let’s see…I am original Swiss but living and working in the uk for 17 years. I am learning BSL out of interest. I love watching when people use it in public and always think it would be so much nicer if more people could understand and join.  
    • Hi my name is Craig.  I am learning sign because I think everybody deserves to be heard.  I have been in multiple situations where I have not been able to communicate effectively with somebody who uses sign as their main form of communication and would like to have the ability to be able to communicate if this happens again so that they feel more included.  I recently saw some examples of this on television that really struck a cord with me as I have travelled extensively and know how it feels t
    • Hello everyone I am NIamh, I am learning BSL as i think this will help me with my career looking after children with special needs to ensure they are all included even if they are are unable to hear or are non-communicative.
