    Grammar help

    Hi there! I'm trying to translate the following sentences into BSL: "In the first lesson, you learnt how to fingerspell. This video is to help you revise it." I'm not quite sure what that would look like, but this is what I have so far: "In our first lesson, fingerspell you learn how. This video you help fingerspelling you revise how." I'm pretty sure this is wrong, but I really need the grammar to be perfect. This is for a school project where I decided to invent a BSL teaching method whilst teaching it myself. Quite odd, I know. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    BSL level 1 practice

    Hi! I’d love to practice some BSL with you, i’m currently studying level 1
  9. Hello folks I've done a bit of research into various level 1 courses and I'm finding it all very confusing, plus the cost differences are amazing. What is the best way for a complete beginner to learn BSL? Is it ok to do the online level 1 then go onto level 2 in a class, or is it better to do the class from level 1 so one gets the hand forms correct? I'm thinking of doing a taster session first and see how I get on, then do level 1, or is it possible to skip that level and go into level 2 if you know the hand forms? I've seen courses at Universities (Kings is £310 each part, with level 1 divided into 3 parts and as such it's a costly £930 for the complete course), compared to the online BSL course of £20. Then the local adult education does something called the prelevel 1s and 2s at £126 and £158. Please help, I'm on a minimum wage so can't afford the huge cost of some of these course. If I like the BSl I hope to take it further through the courses, so a long journey (I presume to level 6). I
  10. Hello everyone, This is my first post in the forum so please be gentle. I'm a mature student with an interest in learning BSL from level 1 upwards. I'm finding all the courses really confusing, so I'm hoping coming here will help. I have lots of questions, so I better have a look see where to put them al,l before making this post too long. Nice to meet you all Purdy.

    Sentence structure - eating

    I was really hoping someone with more knowledge would answer this, expect you've done this by now, but anyway here's what I think (please correct me anyone?!) So the question in English would be 'What did you have for breakfast?' ( did implies 'this morning') or; 'What do you have for breakfast?' (do implies 'usually') But there are no tenses in BSL, so you give the timeframe first: 'This morning [or usually] breakfast you eat what?' I'm fairly sure of that part, the answer, less certain, 'This morning, Breakfast I toast eat' - at least I think it's that order, not 'eat toast', because the example of sentence order I often see is 'the cat tree climbs': Subject; object; verb - if you were drawing a picture you wouldn't draw the cat climbing, before giving it a tree to climb.

    Sentence structure - eating

    Hello wonderful people. This week I am teaching my class how to sign what they ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I know the signs for the meals, eat and foods but how do I sign the sentences? Would it be "breakfast I eat x" then "lunch I eat x" then "dinner I eat x"? Thank you!

    Starting to learn

    From the age of 5 i have had slight hearing loss that got worse and at 14 + i was barely able to hear. After surgery to correct that at 16 all was well but the drs were very honest and said that by the time i get to 30 my hearing will be back to how it was and will just keep getting worse. My mother, me and my 5 year old daughter have decided to learn together before my hearing get worse.
  20. Hi Aiden, messaged you my facetime details, hope it came through OK
  21. yes, facetime is fine, I'll message you
  22. Hi Iain, thanks for your response, much appreciated. I have done facebook before, but not Skype, I will try and get it set up on my computer and get back to you when I am successful. Failing that, do you do Facetime please? Cheers, Aidan
  23. Hi Aidan, I've been learning online since January, haven't had much chance to practice with real people so would like to give it a go! I'm available for Skype most evenings this week except Thursday - I'll message Skype name if anyone interested.

    BSL 1 for mature students

    Hello Louise, Thanks you for your reply. I have only just noticed your email - so this might be too late. I have tried to open a Skype account but it would appear it costs money. However I can face time from my computer if that is acceptable. If we don't get together today may I wish you all the best for tomorrow. I to have an assessment this week, which I am not looking forward to. I am part way through BSL 1 and having a lot of fun I have found a fingerspelling game - link below https://www.signlanguageforum.com/bsl/fingerspelling/fingerspelling-game/ but you probably know that already. I managed three on my first attempt. Have fun and stay safe Kind regards Keith

  28. Hello everyone! I am designing my final collection for my degree and I need a phrase translating from words to signing. Problem is that I want it to make sense and be perfect in order to be right so as to pass the message properly and raise awareness. The clothes will be made with sustainable methods and after completion will be sent to be published in the fashion revolution magazines. Can you help me?
