  1. Yesterday
  2. A close family member of mine lost his hearing towards the end of his life, and he found it incredibly difficult and isolating. He struggled to learn BSL, but he (and I!) were always so grateful when people made sure things like films, speeches etc. were made more accessible for him. Working in customer service reminded me of how important accessibility is, and I am really excited to learn to sign!

  7. Last week
  8. Hi, my names Celia and i am currently enrolled on the BSL course. Im really enjoying it so far and hope to make some good progress in the rest of lockdown :)
  9. Hi Sarah, I don't know if this is of any use. I did a level two on course mix. It didn't have any videos so difficult to understand. However did cover early grammer structure and a few new words I hadn't learn't on this level one course. Last week however I found a level 3 which I believe was still with course mix but said it had videos and you didn't have to have any knowledge of BSL at all, but some would be useful. If you go for it please let me know what you think. I am working through a book at present then looking for a level 3 course. Happy signing Sue
  10. Hi all ūüĎč I've been umming and ahhing about throwing myself in and learning BSL, and I can now proudly say that I've not long started my journey! (very early days and currently only 2 weeks in!) As I'm so new to it all right now I'm not too sure whether having someone to practice with would be the best thing (I could probably only sign certain colours and numbers to you haha!), but I'd absolutely like to be able to practice with some of you when I can to help build and embed my knowledged as I would through my course. I work for a Bank and work
  11. Hi there! I am Jolandi and I recently started with BSL. I am an inspiring teacher and therefore, learning BSL might come in handy one day.
  12. Good Afternoon, I am very new to BSL , I thought it would be a great thing to learn. Also I have a lot of free time as I am a singer in lockdown. And thought it would be great for future career options. I am very scared about actually conversing with someone but would love to at some point. though it might be a very slow conversation. Helen
  13. Hello! I am Mary and am quite new to BSL. I am a paediatric occupational therapist so have learnt a bit of makaton on the job but wanted to further my knowledge and understanding! I'm loving this course but I'm a bit worried about applying it to real life conversations so would love someone to practice with!
  14. Hi I'm Alannah, I am doing this sign language course to allow me to become a great practitioner. Next year I am studying primary education.
  15. I'm Sascha, I'm making my way through BSL Online's Introduction course and I'm hoping to find resources and fellow students (and maybe first language signers???) to practice conversational BSL with. As for why I'm learning? I picked up a few signs from my therapist and I have a lot of time on my hands. Also I think it should just be a thing that everyone knows? Kind of sucks that we aren't all taught from a young age. Anywho, hope to be getting along with y'all!
  16. Hi , Just finished this course which I thought was well set out and I have loved every minute doing but I would like your help on finding the next course that you would recommend for the next level .. thankyou
  17. Good afternoon. My name is Marina and I am new in the BSL forum. I am hearing and I have recently finished Introduction to BSL as I am very interested in learning signing. I was wondering whether there are groups or meetings organised by the community that I could join and get to know and practice signing and meet people? I look forwards to keep learning. Marina.
  18. @Lola2020 Makaton is a sign language generally used with young children or those with difficulties in learning or communication. It uses a mixture of speech, signs and symbols. @DJohnson I think most of the signs are the same but the grammar isn't the same as BSL, it follows English structure.
  19. Hey No answer to your question here, I'm afraid, but could you tell me what Makaton is.... been wondering for a while now
  20. Hi all, I started an introductory course to BSL a couple of months ago with the aim of becoming full qualified eventually. One of the ways I have been learning BSL is by learning signed songs from YouTube. I have noticed some YT videos are labelled as 'BSL/Makaton'. I understand what Makaton is and it's differences from BSL and what it is used for, however I was wondering if members of the Deaf/deaf community or/and people who use BSL also understand Makaton without having to learn it, as such? I hope that makes sense! I'm just curious and would be interested to know if B
  21. Hi Holly, also pretty new to BSL and this is my first time recording myself! Nice to meet you.
  22. Hi everyone, my name is Holly and I'm pretty new to BSL but looking forward to learning more and improving! I am a lawyer and I'm learning BSL because I think it's important that law be accessible to everyone. Looking forward to learning with you all :)
  23. hi I have decided to learn BSL so I can improve my communication skills and I enjoy learning new things
  24. Hello everyone, I'm Mya. I've always wanted to learn BSL and even tried once when I was younger but did not commit. I thought that it was important to communicate with all people, in a way that they were comfortable, and that's why I'm attempting to learn it again now. I don't want to miss out on relationships with a non-hearing person because I was never taught to communicate with them. I think communication is important and that why I try to learn as many languages as possible. I am a university student so I don't have a job
