  2. Hi Anyone know if there is a practice group or similar somewhere in Great Yarmouth or surrounding areas, most places seem to be around the Norwich area? I am currently doing level 2 and really need more receptive practice
  3. Hey peeps Ive just done a first year of BSL to keep up with my 11 year old daughter who has cochlear implants. I found watching the DVD part of the level 1 exam too hard but everyone just said get on with it. It was like teh Emperor's New Clothes scenario. So what happens this week, it is announced that the video was in fact for level 2 students. Thankyou! But bizzarely we still watched it as a group and with some support I got there. But it is all a bit of a muddle if you ask me. Anyone else have this prob?

  7. Hi ! I am Merve, I am a teacher. I have just completed the lessons of Turkish Sign Language, with the help of what I have learnt I can communicate with deaf people.But this is just in Turkish, my wish is to reach more people , I think this will be possible by learing English Sign Language; so I am here.And also I want to teach the words I learn to my students.

    Written Assessment

    Hi everyone, I am new to BSL and on level one, has anyone yet done the written assessment and what exactly do they mean when they want interesting facts. as i am struggling a little on what to write. Happy Friday 😀👍
  10. Hi Lynda, either is fine. I'm around tomorrow until 3:30, or Sunday any time? I'm in Essex but I've been learning signs from the Internet so I've probably got quite a mixture of dialects haha.

  12. That's great Amy, I'd be happy to Skype chat or in a room here? My husband is a shift worker so I'll try to arrange when he's at work and I can use his laptop. It will be good for me to.go back to the beginning again ands I'm findingredients I've forgotten some signs from the early days. I have my final exam in 3 weeks sof keen to practice. I'm in SE England, Kent so use that regional BSL. Let me know what days and send times are good for you. Lynda x
  13. Hi, I'm in a similar situation to you. I'm losing my hearing, I'm down to moderate overall with areas on the borderline to severe. I did level 1 ten years ago so I'm very rusty but I'm revising and trying to learn more before my hearing gets any worse. If you don't mind being patient with me while I catch up I'd be happy to practise with you

    Intro

    I have thought about learning BSL many years ago but was confused with all the variations, now my daughter has met a deaf mute friend and is learning BSL along with her son very well, I don't see him often but want to slowly study and learn to help communicate the best I can, it has only been a week and I find it very interesting and fun to learn. Once I have leant enough I hope to try signing to other on here if possible. thank you Paul.

    Sentence Structure Help

    Hi there! I'm an actress new to this site, and learning BSL. I would love to know the correct sentence structure for a line in a play. The sentence is... "Don't know where he's come from but he definitely seems to have something stuck up his..." I know the signs individually just not sure what order is correct to communicate them in, as I'm still very much learning the grammar, so would love some help! Many thanks

    we need sign language in mainstream schools

    I am 14 and learning BSL in school and I am going to do my grade 1 exam. When BSL started in my school a lot of people wanted to learn it (90) however the number of people learning has now dropped to 10. I think the main reasons people stopped coming were time and commitment. The sessions are an hour and a half long and it is really difficult to focus for this long, also people felt that they had to come every single week. If BSL is taught in schools the sessions would need to be shorter.
