    • Hi,  I'm learning BSL as I have been loosing my hearing for the past 2 years and am feeling a bit left out of the speaking community I grew up in. I learned to lip read sub consciously and out of necessity, but I still feel left out in crowds and while trying to talk to people while outside with lots of noise.   I just want to feel included but I'm scared as none of my friends sign or feel the need to learn! Sorry, didn't want to be a downer! Am having lots of fun learning though! 
    • I have always been interested in Sign Language and I got more intrigued since I started working for the Interpretation&Translation Service NHS here in Edinburgh. We provide BSL Interpreters which are outsourced with an agency. And it would be great to get become involved more with Deaf people, the community workwise. I am attending an Introduction Course and continue with Level 1 in August. Level 2 and 3 at some point would be great if I can afford that. I found out that we have to pay the highest fees here for those courses in Scotland/if not the UK.
    • Dear Wendy, I am attending a BSL INtroduction Course in Edinburgh and we have a girl who is 27 years old. She was diagnosed with a brain turmor at the age of 10 or so I think. She suffers from short term memory since then and she still catches up with basic signs and small talk. It helps her a lot to be filmed while she signs sentences or words and puts them together. Might be an idea for yourself, too.
    • I am a beginner and find this quite useful I am fine fingerspelling myself but receptive skills are not really good. I am ok with the first few letters but if there are more than 6 letters I am lost, lol. Also I am German and not native to English language. I am fluent in English, though it is easier for me to read the word "George" for example and I know how to prounounce the name. But if words/names are fingerspelled to me, I find it (still) difficult to recognise them. I guess that I will improve by time.
    • Hej guys, I am Annika from Edinburgh, 36 years old and have been learning with books and YT, BSL Watchzone since few months. Doing Introduction since beginning of Feb and going to continue with Level 1 in August. I am studying with a Deaf Tutor at Deaf Action.

      Would be awesome to find other people from Edinburgh to meet up with and to get help here, keen on doing L2 and eventually L3 in near future if I can afford that.

      Other than that I like my two cats, I work for an Interpretation Service at NHS, I enjoy walking though nature, Outlander and Star Trek conventions, upcycling and cooking/eating non cruelty food.
    • Hi Alexis, I live in Edinburgh and a beginner, too. Happy to Skype or meet up if you are in Edinburgh some time.
    • Hi Alexia, I am attending an Introduction Course here in Edinburgh and will continue in August with Level 1
      If you want we can have some Skype conversation at the weekend. Cheers, Annika
    • Have a look on Youtube at 'BSL learning with Mel' - she's a BSL tutor from the south-east and as well as doing the videos she says she does 1-to-1 Skype Tuition. Her videos are great.
    • A bit far away from where I am. Sorry, I just wanted to share sign conversations with someone live nearby me.  Thanks for your reply.
