    Adam Linsdell

    Hello. My name is Adam and I am a British Sign Language Teacher. I am Deaf and have been using British Sign Language since I was a teenager. My personal experience of Deafness was my primary reason for learning BSL and why I have such a deep passion for this beautiful and expressive language.

    I have studied BSL to NVQ Level 6 and trained to become a teacher, enabling me to achieve my dream of teaching BSL in my local community. This opportunity has enabled me to work with the local Deaf community, building strong relationships and links.

    I have taught sign language throughout Cambridge, teaching at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge Regional College, Cambridgeshire Deaf Association and Cottenham Village College. Usually, I teach face to face but during lockdown my classes moved online – this has been a new experience and a great opportunity for me and my learners.
