    • Hello, 

      My name is Zoltan and I am one half of a producer duo working on a new short film with BSL talent attached. As one of our actors is of school-age we would love to find a tutor who would be willing to come on a 5 to 6-day shoot, freelance, later this year or mid-February next year. If you know of anyone or if you are a teacher/tutor yourself we'd love to hear from you. 

      Of course, this is a paid role.  

      The shoot will take place in Ireland and therefore we are happy to consider applicants from across the UK and Ireland. 

      If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. 

      Many thanks again and thank you for accepting me on your forum. 

      Have a lovely rest of your day! 

      Zoltan
    • Hey Marla, My favourite sign is TRUST/SURE/TRUE: https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/true-1.html If your are starting to learn and are intrigued by the BSL world, then I thoroughly recommend using these sites for finding signs: Primary - https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/ Secondary - https://www.signbsl.com/ And also watching shows on BSL Zone! It's an incredible site where you can watch a whole host of shows that are all in BSL. - https://www.bslzone.co.uk/watch/ Lucy
    • That's awesome, thank you! So then, if you signed MUST while shaking your head and using negative expression, would that mean "not allowed to" or "don't have to"? Thanks! Lucy
    • Thank you Vikki, that is very helpful! Lucy

    • Hello all,  My name is Marla and I am an international student in Bangkok. I started learning Bsl as it allows me to volunteer for more service opportunities. I also have started learning Bsl for a school project. I am very intrigued of the Bsl world and would like to learn as much as I can! Please write below your favorite word in Bsl and why. I think mine is Australia as I think it’s a funny sign. 
    • According to the textbook we use, there are at least 8 ways to negate a verb in bsl.  Some of them are non-manual features that would be done during the sign, like shaking your head during <must>.  Others are individual signs, added before or after the verb, like <not>. Some of the signs have particular uses, like <don't>, that could replace the verb in a comment, or go before/after it.
