  3. Hi I am learning BSL for my work as a health care assistant I am doing BSL level 1 I really enjoy learning I wear hearing aids so hard of hearing
  4. Hi - new learner ( later in life perhaps - I’m 50+ ) have done about 3 months BSL with an awesome teacher and am looking for practice buddies - i find the dexterity and speed of fluent speakers amazing - I’m really really slow 😂 - the key I’m told is practice practice and more practice - I’d love to have a video chat buddy to practice with. Please drop me a line if interested. I’m a company owner in the technology / social value / climate sector.
  5. Last week
  6. Hey, I work as an Early years practitioner for the NHS where we use Makaton within our setting. Although I am enjoying learning and using Makaton I decided I wanted to try learning BSL. Although I am only about to start lesson 5, so far so good with the BSL, in fact I love it! and now we have a child who has a hearing difficulty. I am hard on myself ensuring I am very sure of the signs I have learnt before using them at work. I often recap previous lessons to confirm my retainment and set myself (what I call) a remember challenge for words that are challenging for me to memorise which I have f
  7. Great this is very appreciable. I personally believe learning anything new in life is our achievement, so whether we use this language or not, we should give a try learning BSL. _____________________________________ Anthony Constantinou
  8. A friend of mine is a Clairvoyant and she had this person appear when she was with clients. He seems to be using a form of sign language, but I have no idea what it is. Can anyone clarify what the hands are saying? Your help is greatly appreciated. Penelope
  9. Okay cool! Discord is like an app that is really good for "group chats". You can use it on a computer too. I will message you the invite link to the server (think of a server like a group chat) I have made. It will guide you to make a discord account and then join you into the server! Slow is okay
  10. Hi, group chat good idea. What is discord? I am fully hearing but always had an interest in BSL and final got round to beginning to learn. Bit slow going as have to fit it in around work & home life.
  11. Hi both! I hope you guys get this notification 🙂 I also live on the island and am learning - maybe we could make a group chat? I use discord and it is good for typing and video calls. Let me know! (I'm 19)
  12. I hadn't thought about how hearing people with other needs could use BSL, I think it's a great idea for you and I really hope that when you're overwhelmed and struggling to communicate with your voice that BSL will be a useful tool for you.
  13. Hi Jordan, This is a really lovely way to connect with your daughter. How is your learning going? And is your daughter learning with you or does she get taught by a teacher/specialist? Beth
  14. Being a visual communication im hoping British sign language will be easier to pick up than other languages which rely mainly on auditory processing. Good luck on your learning journey
  15. Hello Everyone, my name is julia, im learning BSL because its always fascinated me and i like being able to communicate with and understand others.
  16. I am learning BSL because I have a two and a half year old daughter who is non verbal and deaf in one ear. This way we can start to communicate with each other.
  17. Hi, my name is Jordan and I have a two and a half year old daughter who is deaf in one ear.
  18. What I mean is that you've learned so much by yourself or elsewhere that the teachers think you're too advanced for a level 1 class but you would start at level 2 and start getting qualifications from there. Or do you think it's worth it to get a level 1 as well? For example, when I did french evening classes, I learned enough French by myself to go straight to intermediate/gsce classes and not start at the beginner ones.
  19. Hello, My Name is Sarah, My daughter is deaf and is beginning to learn sign so I thought I would learn to.

  21. I'm in a very similar boat to you. I also have some issues with hearing/auditory processing as well but because I'm autistic and have panic disorder I can often get non-verbal when overwhelmed and it's happened during uni before, even, and it was really hard to deal with. Compared to other languages I've studied, BSL has not been that hard to learn for me.
  22. Hey Lia, congrats on your baby I also just joined
  23. Transcription: "Hello. Name me El and I'm student university. Sign Language, I think, beautiful language, and I want learn sign language." Hey everyone. I'm El (he/him), I'm 20 years old and I'm a uni student and wannabe polyglot. Whilst my passion for learning languages is a reason why I am learning BSL, I have some difficulties with hearing/auditory proccessing (not fully known yet) and I'm a semi-verbal autistic so I sometimes use sign to communicate if not AAC. If I have time, I might consider taking a Level 1 course that's in my local area, as I enjoy the environment of adult l
  24. My 1 year old can sign all his needs to me eg: milk, tired, nappy, food. This is before he is able to verbally express his needs to me which I think is amazing. So I thought, wouldn’t it be lovely to be able to do parent and baby/toddler classes where I can teach them too!
  25. My name is Lia I have been a beauty therapist for 9 years. I had a baby last year and do not wish to go back to my old job and would love to learn sign language because it fascinates me and my father in law is fluent in BSL. It also opens more job opportunities up; I would love to do BSL classes with babies and toddlers in the future. 😁
  26. Hi Tina, happy to helps. What is your email address please? Kind regards Sadaqa

Although I am only about to start lesson 5, so far so good with the BSL, in fact I love it! and now we have a child who has a hearing difficulty. I am hard on myself ensuring I am very sure of the signs I have learnt before using them at work. I often recap previous lessons to confirm my retainment and set myself (what I call) a remember challenge for words that are challenging for me to memorise which I have found useful. I am already finding that I can read some language signed on television and feel very excited / proud. This leaves me thinking, within inclusion, why is BSL not on the curriculum for children to learn at school?
