  2. Hi there, I want to learn it because whenever I see someone who can't speak and struggling to make understand his/her views but unable to express so there I find that if I can help him, it will be so proud moment for me that I can understand him and can translate his/her views to the others.
  3. My name sign is the American sign letter K and the middle finger brushing my cheek (specifically my dimple). Is there a difference between American Deaf Culture and British Deaf Culture on the topic of name signs? Here we don't make our own name signs. Instead, a deaf person will give a name sign to another person. It's kind of a "rite of passage" here.
  4. Last week
  5. Hello!
  6. Hello everyone! I am an ASL/English Interpreter and live in Washington State. I really wish to learn different sign languages around the world and I am so happy to find this forum to learn more BSL. Just in case this video isn't viewable to you, the first part of the video, I introduce myself in BSL. The second half is in ASL where I want to make it clear that I am not here to teach ASL but to learn BSL. I will occasionally share some ASL signs for clarity as BSL is so different and the same sign can have completely opposite meanings or even something very inappropriate in the other sign. As it is with any student and mistakes, do pardon me if I sign something offensive.
  7. I was using a Mac but can't remember what browser I was using now, I always alternate between Safari and Chrome so it would have been one of those...
  8. Hello both - are you able to let me know what web browser you are using and if you are on Windows, or Mac (or something else?) - so that we can do a bit of testing and try to figure out why you weren't able to connect to each other. Thanks
  9. No worries @h.n.jootna, I think there must be some compatibility issues, as there was one point where I had some other screen come up but it wouldn't let me select anything etc. I've sent you a Skype request anyway in the meantime. Fingers crossed we'll get it working somehow next Sunday!
  10. Hi, Sorry things didn't work out! I am just on my HP with Windows 10. It might be me being computer illiterate, but I tried a few times. I'll have another go before the next practice and hopefully I'll be able to sort things out, but I'll let you know if not! Thanks, Hope PS - Jenny @missjennyng feel free to add me on Skype. My skype name is HopeNatalya.
  11. @AdminNope, I'm just using my Mac. The video WAS working for me and I could see myself - just not the other person. I've just seen this message in the Chat Box from Hope @h.n.jootna: I have been in the room but nothing is working. I have tried to set up the camera and microphone and enter a nickname but the panel that appears on the left hand side of the screen wont work - it wont recognise my pointer/clicker!
  12. Hello. I'm sorry that you had difficulty using the chat rooms. I can't see a particular problem with the server. Can you confirm that you aren't using a mobile device as these aren't yet supported for the chat rooms? Thanks
  13. @Admin @h.n.jootna I just tried to join, but I could only see myself..! I could see that Hope had joined the room, but there was only a blank screen where her face would be. I tried using the message facility within the room to reach her that way but got no response. Please can you explain how the chat room works, is there some other setting we need to enable?
  14. Hello @MissJennyNg - This website has group video chatrooms (up to 4 people per room - but users can create as many new rooms as you like) - just click on the "BSL Chat Rooms" menu button at the top of this page
  15. @h.n.jootna How will this work in theory, would we do a group video chat via Skype or something? (I've only used Skype to communicate with one person, so no idea how a group one works!) And are we starting tonight?
  16. I'd love to do this! I'm on the last topic of my level one and starting to get nervous about the assessments
  17. Would love to - but I'm never in on a Sunday evening
  18. Hello @Karla Brown - welcome! Thanks for introducing yourself - it's nice to 'meet' you. I hope you enjoy the site.
  19. Hey x I would love to practice I have learned level one but not very confident with it so any help practicing is greatly appreciated xx
  20. I'm 18 and have been loosing my hearing for two years now! I can't hear much without hearing aids so I want to learn sign language so I can communicate without hearing aids and help learning is more than welcome xx
  21. fantastic idea
  22. Hi Pam. I use this sign for charity. I haven't seen any others but the might be a different variation used in your area?
  23. The BSL sign for the word "charity".
  24. Hello @Pam - Welcome to Sign Language Forum! I've moved this post into the "What is the BSL sign for __________ ? " thread as it is better suited there - I hope that's ok. I hope you find this site useful.
  25. Looking for the BSL sign for Charity. So far l have found 3 different signs. Does anyone know?
  26. I'm up for this! I completed level 1 recently too, but that was a month ago where I haven't practised much since so already feeling rusty. Also just started level 2 (where I'm finding the signing too fast too follow!) so would be great to have people to practice with
  27. i'll set a reminder on my phone...I have not quite completed level 1 , nearly there.
