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?

    • Hi, I am Lyn. I am learning BSL as I had a head injury a few years ago. I lost most of my hearing and my speech was impaired for a while. It was quite frightening as I couldn't really communicate with people although I could understand. I found people made assumptions about what was going on particularly Doctors and medical staff. I don't ever want to be made to feel like that again. Or, indeed , be treated like that again. I am now at a time in my life where I have a bit more time to learn so h
