    • Hi there I send out a 'sign of the day' courtesy of the BSL site daily to my tutor groups.  The students love it.  We have a special assembly coming up in June and I would love some of the students in my house to sign our house prayer.  It would be a lovely way to round off the year, having practiced a sign a day for the entire school year. I wondered if anyone would be willing to record a video for us that we can use to practice?  I did very basic signing at primary school and remember some basics so can help them learn, but some clear guidance would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance, Melissa Stevenson - Bonus Pastor Catholic College   The prayer is: We pray to you, St John Fisher, to help us be outspoken in the truth. We hope that, like you, we will be dignified in our words and actions. St John Fisher, pray for us. Amen.

    • Hi Sharna, I have just joined so am also new at this - I have been trying to learn sign language and i am currently doing my level 1 so just at the beginning as well.  I have been going to a class but it would be good to be able to practice during the week. 
    • Hi. I’m sharna.  I wear hearing aids as I am hard of hearing and because of that I’ve always wanted to learn bsl but the courses are very expensive and I tried with just an online course but then I couldn’t practice with people which is what I want (otherwise it’ll be like in one ear and out the other but about eyes instead of ears. Also - I made an ear joke haha - not wanting to offend anyone by that though   If you can’t laugh...) I really want it as a second language to the point of I can do it without much thought like I do with English.  And hopefully I’ll make friends. Nice to meet you all
