Why I’m learning

Recommended Posts

I am learning as I am currently a support worker and think having basic knowledge of BSL could allow me to support more people especially those of who have hearing difficulties. Also because I very recently seen a BSL conversation in the supermarket and found it so interesting and I thought it would be something I wish I could do!

I have been wanting to do this for a very long while. Since I was 17 (now 35) and I think it will help in my current role as a shop assistant and helping my customers and understand them better. But I have always wanted a job with the Deaf community. I think it would be very fulfilling and very rewarding to know you have helped someone when others don't communicate well or talk too fast.

This sounds brilliant for yourself... how are you finding the assessments?

    • Yes I love this idea, I am beginning my PGCE in September and would love to see more of British Sign Language in Mainstream schools
    • Hi All, I have a deer best friend so started learning sign but I now work with children in gymnastics that require sign so am furthering my knowledge 
    • Hi all! I'm Cherise and I've started learning BSL so that I can interact with more people. I have cousins that are deaf and hard of hearing and I'd love to be able to talk to them in their language rather than relying on lipreading as I have been (very lazy of me!) I've always wanted to learn and find that I now have the time to start.  Happy learning to you all and I hope to connect with some of you 😊
    • I have just started the online BSL course, I’m a complete beginner but I am enjoying it and hoping I can put it to use in the future. :)
    • Hi I'm learning BSL as I work with people with dual sensory loss.
    • Hi, How would I ask someone whether they liked something? For example, do you like rugby?  Thanks!
    • I have just finished with lesson 3 and thought I would try to introduce myself a little. I have looked through a few videos to get an idea of what I could say...so thanks esp Hannah White! I only got interested in BSL since my 5year old was learning three signs a week with homeschooling and I seemed to enjoy learning with him. Thought I would give it a real shot. Please let me know what you think.
