Linda Day MSc, RSLI
I was born into a Deaf family; both my parents are Deaf and use BSL. Going to Deaf clubs and Deaf events were part of my everyday life. I was fortunate to be able to read Fingerspelling well thanks to my neighbour and my mum. I was elected onto the BDA Board and then went on to be elected as the BDA Vice Chair for my second term. I am the founder and Director of Signworld Learn Ltd, which is an online learning tool for those who wish to learn BSL.
Nationally and internationally recognised for my role in the development of teaching BSL, I have led my field in adapting the curriculum to match learner’s needs. I enjoy teaching and have an innovative approach to learning and teaching, introducing materials and ideas such as ‘location’ and ‘role shift’ to improve learning. Taught various sign language levels from beginners to interpreting level over the years.
