    Beginner

    Hey, I’m Ryan and I’m brand new to BSL. My schedule means I’m unable to enrol on a course, so I will be making use of any online resources. I was also hoping to maybe find someone who would like to practice. Any level is cool with me.
  5. Hi, I would like to register a group of people (my family) to learn BSL. I was wondering if I do a group enrollment can they log into the course separately? Or do we all have to log on via 1 log in and we learn at the same time?

  7. Good Morning, I hope this is the correct forum to introduce myself and what I am looking for? If not please do let me know the best way to go about this. I work for Three mobile and run their Three Live video streaming service and would like to include broadcasts with a BSL user sitting alongside our presenters to increase accessibility and awareness for our viewers. I am looking for volunteers in or around the Glasgow area to come in and sign for me on special broadcasts alongside my presenters. I will be able to cover travel expenses for you if anyone on the forum would be interested. you can access my teams broadcasts here www.three.co.uk/three-live and we tend to broadcast on the hour for about 20 mins just click on the widget at the bottom right of the screen to see what we do. If you are interested please reply. And I apologise to admin if this is not the correct use of this forum pages but would appreciate guidance on where I can request this if possible.

    Hello, My name is Sue and I live in Northumberland. I have had Meniere's Disease for 8 years and am right sided deaf. I have been to lip reading classes and I am now learning BSL which I love. I am doing the introduction now and will start level 1 in September. I try to do the BSL spelling game a couple of times a week and so far on medium speed my highest score is 23. Is there anyone on this site who is from my neck of the woods?

    Hello Everyone

    Hi everyone 😀 my wife and I are taking this course to help prepare us for a more in-depth course later this year. I had meningitis 2 years ago and unfortunately it damaged the nerves in my ears, so I have lost approx 40% of my hearing. I now wear hearing aids which isn’t great, but they’re purple and sparkly so I love them now! We’re learning to sign as a precaution as it’s likely I’ll lose more of my hearing in the future. im looking forward to learning a new language and meeting/talking to new people 🙂
  16. Just trying to fill out my conversational vocabulary, I can't find signs for "don't", "want", "need", "or", "she", "he", "always", and general tense modifiers for the future and the past? Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    Looking for practice

    Good Morning, I am currently doing my BSL level 1 and looking for someone to practice with, I am free most evenings unless work priorities pull me away Ideally looking to meet someone on Skype each day in the evenings for a couple of weeks to go through all Level 1 content and practice together. Thank you in advanced
  19. I've always tried to get into learning BSL, as I have a keen interest in languages, but this year have really started motivating myself more. No more excuses. While I was working in retail, there were a few customers who didn't speak English and as the only multilingual, I would always be the one translating. Until someone came in who was either hard of hearing or deaf and could only communicate in BSL and we were all at a loss. I feel that it is in line with my own personal goals for the society I want to live in to have a duty to learn how to be more accessible. An added bonus would be being able to communicate more with my cousin who is learning sign language to help with his communication difficulties due to autism.

    New to BSL

    Hi I’ve just started to learn BSL. I am finding it quite enjoyable at the moment. I sometimes have trouble hearing people in conversations if they talk rather quietly but other than that I’m fine. I heard about this course at work and they were going to run a group session so I signed up for it but sadly it didn’t happen so decided to go it alone. Just hope I can do it justice 🙂
  21. I figured this would be a very helpful thing to learn. As, if I needed to know a sign I could ask a deaf person in sign language by then fingerspelling the word. Thank you in advance.

    Hello BSL

    Hello everyone, I’m new to BSL but have a grasp of finger spelling from when I was at school. I’m not deaf and none of my family or friends are but I find BSL a beautiful language and was inspired by watching two girls at a festival - friends, sisters, partners; who knows. They were dancing together but the hearing girl had her back to the stage and was signing the words of the songs to her friend, which I thought was a beautiful thing. Looking to learn the basics and hopefully more.

    Develop a new skill

    I’ve decided to do the BSL online course as I’m really interested in developing a new skill. Being a music teacher I naturally pick things up quickly and I’m enjoying the link between facial expressions and how that links in with singing.

    New to BSL

    Hi all, I just started learning BSL last week. Really enjoying it so far. I am a private music tutor and have had an interest in sign language from a young age. Probably since my aunt taught me the alphabet when I was very small! Glad to be doing something about it! I don’t know anyone who uses BSL but feel it’ll be a great skill to have.
