    • Hey everyone!
      My name is Michelle and I am here to get to know some BSL users! I would love to get to know someone around my own age (23) to practice with, or to teach me.
      I have been learning on my own for some time now and I am very much still a beginner, but I am evolving, and I love the language and the culture.

      I am from Denmark and I am not just looking to practice, I am looking to make friends in the deaf community. Tell me about everything! The good, the bad..the fun!. I myself have not formally been to any BSL classes, but I joined in on some beginner lessons in Oxford last year, and I had a somewhat understandable conversation on BSL with the teacher.

      So please message me if you think it could be fun to learn me a thing or two about your life - or your own learning experience (or If you, you know, love cats, Harry Potter, Backpacking and Netflix...really get a hold of me! haha)
       
    • Hi new to BSL wanted to learn for a long time  Now I'm not working I have started an online course  I'm very slow but enjoying learning😀
    • Hi. I am just starting to lead BSL  however I notice a few differences between bsl  and sign language in Scotland.   
    • Honestly - started learning this week just signed up to this today and the first thread I open is someone I know irl! Hi Nimbus Aaron - hope you're okay! x
    • hello my name is Kerry, I have been signing bsl since I was about 15 years old  I was in a carehome with deaf and hearing people and became intrigued in this type of communication it hs always been my dream to become an interpreter im a mother of 3 beautiful children and I am currently doing my level 2 in bsl  just need help to practice to be honest if there is anyone who can help me id be much appreciated  again many thanks in return .  
    • Hello. I just refreshed my BSL Level 1 with an online course which was useful. Sorry not close enough to meet but am available to do video chat if you're interested. Thanks, Rob W.
    • Hello all. I have used BSL off and on over many years and am really only a beginner. However, I really want to commit to learning BSL and am keen to practise with someone. I am a qualified teacher (senior leader) and have used Makaton/SSE before but wish to move to a school with high number of D/deaf children. I am happy for anyone to contact me who wants to practise or who has any advice for me. Thanks, Rob W.
    • Hi my name is carol i have started my level 2 after passing level 1..  4 yrs ago we are doing sentence structure i am bit stuck can any one help  Engish .. my mother gave me £20  Would bsl be mother £20 me   
    • Hi everyone, I'm staring a level 1 BSL course at the end of April. Bit pre-emptive maybe, but I thought I'd sign up and maybe get a head start and introduce myself. My name's Liam, I have no previous experience with signing, but I'm training part time for the next few years to become a counsellor/therapist so I'm also looking to learn as much BSL and possibly some Makaton with the aim of becoming as inclusive a therapist as possible.
    • As weird as it sounds, I totally get this. I'm not learning BSL for D&D purposes, but one of my best friends who I play with is pretty good at it. I thought it'd make an excellent version of Thieves Cant or even the Drow Hand Signal Language (which is, essentially, very similar to BSL!). I'd definitely considered using it in a character too :D
