New to Sign Language

Hi Everyone,

My name is Ben.

I received a course to learn BSL for Christmas  as last year I thought it would be a good thing to learn. There are so many languages in the world and I have had a go at learning them so have picked up phrases but that was more for holiday reasons, I am learning BSL to give back to others.

My interest in BSL is because there are so many people who have a hearing or speech characteristic but that should not restrict them in any way I am also rejoining the RAF and intend to teach BSL to Service men and women. As an organisation that is less likely to employ people with these characteristics, there is a very limited reason to learn but it can still have a massive benefit for people when they leave or for their families while serving. 

I hope everyone is enjoying their course at the moment and I look forward.

    • I'm more than a little hesitant about using the sign for "thank you" during this... unique procession of events... I find myself feeling uncomfortable bringing my hands anywhere near my mask, and I feel more than a little embarrassed by what it might look like to another person doing so. I've kinda defaulted to signing yes, which seems to get the point across at shops and what not, but I also think it might come across as a little rude? I'm kinda new to signing frequently, prior to people wearin

    • 👋🏻 Hello  I've just started learning BSL, I've always thought that BSL should have been an option when learning languages at school. I don't have anyone in my immediate circle who uses BSL but I have always wanted to learn. I'm part of an additional needs parenting group and a few of their children use sign language, because they're either deaf or struggle to communiate verbally.  I am currently not working so thought now the kids are back to school I'd make the most of my time and lea
