Signworld is the product of Linda Day’s passion to see BSL and every other sign language learned and taught in the best possible way, with the best possible learning either in classroom or through online. This is to ensure that the teaching is up to date for the 21st Century.
Everybody’s learning requirements are different, and Linda wants Signworld to be flexible enough to meet that.
Linda Day is the former Director of the Centre for Deaf Studies, University of Bristol, and has over 25 years experience as a BSL/English presenter, interpreter and translator for TV, video and in recent years for a variety of websites. She was one of the first Deaf people to become registered as a qualified BSL/ASL Interpreter in 2012.
Linda is the Deaf child of Deaf parents, so she learned BSL – from the cradle and through infancy.
She went on to train as BSL teacher and to become a respected academic, both nationally and internationally.
Linda was one of the Directors and founders of Signworld online learning (www.signworldlearn.com) back in March 2012.
Nationally and internationally recognised for her role in the development of teaching BSL, she has led her field in adapting the curriculum to match learner’s needs. She enjoys teaching and has an innovative approach to learning and teaching. She taught various sign language levels from beginner to interpreting level over the years at the Centre for Deaf Studies, University of Bristol.
Linda was an External Examiner for many years so she’s familiar with BSL curriculum and assessments.
