Introducing Myself

Recommended Posts

I have started to learn BSL online, as I learnt a little bit when I was 14 (A long time ago now!).  I hope I improve and get a little more fluid with my signing.  I am a supply primary teacher and My husband and I also host Accessible Games for People with learning or Physical disabilities.  So I would like to be able to help anyone who attended one of our events if they used BSL.

I'm a mum to three children with a sensory neural hearing loss which they have had since birth. we don't use a to of sign language at home but have picked up bits on the way and now I would like to become more fluent and be able to work with Deaf or deaf individuals within my work as an holistic therapist.

Hi all,

I've been interested in languages including BSL since I was in my teens (now in my 30s). Back then I couldn't find a sensibly priced course in my area and there wasn't as much avalible online. As our dear friend Covid-19 has utterly ruined my plans for the next few months (I'm in an 'at risk' group), I decided to use some of the time that I'll be stuck in the house to make a proper start on learning to sign. I know a few signs, but never got much past finger spelling.

Anyone else here using online courses to help them stay sane while self isolating?

I’m doing the same as I now have the time to do it. I also learnt a bit when I was 14, but never continued with it, which I regret. Now doing the online course, which I’m enjoying  so far. A good idea given current times too 👍🏻

They won't have changed, they are regional. So depending on where your tutor is from depends on their signs

    • I believe the sentence structure would be "like you rugby" with a questioning expression.   "Like" is tap twice on the chest with flat primary hand, "you" is point to the person, then "rugby" is mime throwing a rugby ball. All this is covered in lesson 3 or 4 I think. The hobbies/likes/dislikes lesson.   HTH
    • I would love to be helpful and I work in a shop where I have had interactions with quite a few deaf customers who obviously use sign language with their family but i'd love to be able to sign to them so that their shopping experience was more inclusive. 
    • Hello!  My name is Emma, I have always wanted to learn BSL since I read a book 'A Quiet Kind of Thunder' when I was younger that featured deaf and BSL speakers. I had set it as my new year resolution many years on the trot without commitment or means to complete the resolution. I'm 19, I do English Lit and Lang at Uni and because I do a joint degree I can't take the elective in BSL that is offered at my uni. Then lockdown began and I have started an online course and I'm very much enjoying
