I started my BSL journey with Rebecca in September 2008, when I joined my local college to study BSL level 1. During the course, Rebecca was supportive, friendly, and always happy to answer any questions I had.
With Rebecca’s help and support, I successfully passed level 1 with great scores. Her teaching got me hooked on BSL, and when I found out she was going to provide a BSL level 2 course, I accepted immediately.
Rebecca taught BSL level 2 privately from September 2009 to February 2010, with two other students from my BSL level 1 course. Rebecca helped me boost my BSL confidence, and I attended a few deaf clubs as a result of this. I took my BSL level 2 exams in February, and received the results the following month. I was ecstatic when I saw that I got 11/12 in the first exam, and full marks in the second and third exams. I am 100% sure that I couldn’t have achieved such fantastic results without Rebecca’s commitment and continued support of my learning.
Following this, Rebecca introduced me to a friend who provides higher level courses in BSL level 3 and 6. In December 2011 I completed level 3, and I am now progressing well with level 6.
Rebecca started out as my teacher, but I now class her as one of my best friends. Thanks to her, I have gained both skills and confidence to make new deaf friends, attend regular deaf events, and interpret for a number of Christian events, including a week-long festival in August.
I am now very passionate about BSL, and I would highly recommend Rebecca to anybody who wants to get started with this wonderful language. I can assure you that with her support, you too will love every moment, and become hooked!
