    • Hi I am learning BSL to engage more with my son. 
    • Hi, I have just started and wanted to do something with my son so we are both doing this and practice with each other which is nice. I would love to help people one day with communication. Please excuse me as I am very slow as still thinking about signs.   
    • I've only just started this week so it's fresh in my mind. Might start forgetting some as I do more lol. But watching a programme I'll try do signs for things I've done or pick random words to fingerspell. At work I keep showing other's how to do some as well as family. They're already sick of me 😂
    • That was great signing! It's ok, I forgot how you say "nice to meet you" until you just signed it! It's a great course with so many signs, think I may have to do it again, once I've finished it to jog my memory! 
    • BSL is regional and there are different dialects depending on where you live/where you learn, just the same as spoken English
    • Movement or not that sign can mean friend or friends, depends on the context of what you are saying. Variation is normal because of dialect and people just signing in slightly different ways. There isn't a movement that makes signs plural though.
    • First sign is: 'clever/smart' Second sign, I think is slightly incorrect but looks like it could be 'how long' or 'because'   Third sign: if you repeated a few times would be 'process' like steps forward.
    • I decided to Learn BSL after watching a short film, A SILENT CHILD, and getting tearful at the family of a little girl who didn't bother to learn how to communicate with her. After that I watched many youtube videos on ASL without realizing I'm thousands of miles away from anyone who I could possibly communicate it with. My college conveniently offered this course as an extra curricular, and so here I am!! I'm very excited to learn the language, and I love the fact that soon I'll be able to communicate without using words.    Good luck guys!
