    WHY ARE YOU LEARNING BSL?

    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.

    New to BSL as losing my hearing

    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.

    Tips to remember vowels

    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.

    Scottish Learner

    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.

    Hii! Someone from Stirling or nearby?

    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
  11. 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.

    Hello everyone

    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.
  13. Hello to Japan. Quite interesting that you study Bsl in Japan; why not Japanese Sign Language? I am looking for Skye sessions, too. I have been attending an Introduction Course in Edinburgh and therefore we mainly learn Scottish signs. I want to continue with Level 1 in August and eventually L2 in Feb 2020, but it's very expensive :o

    Hello everyone

    Hi Alexia, The Group I run is for colleagues at work in South Derbyshire. There are 27 of us at present, with 22 of us recently started the online course. I'm looking for resources to print out for our monthly meetings so we can learn the signs together & people have something to take away and practice. Not everyone is confident using the internet. any ideas? What have you come across?

    Signing the Letter D

    I know it has been forever (over a year ) But thank you for this. I actually stopped trying to learn. My personal life got so hectic i didnt have time to learn. I am currently in a place where i am able to learn again and i am pleased to say i have advanced since this post. I can greet people ask how they are and respond "i am well" I have learned a few colours. I know all my alphabet and i am much for confidant in my ability to learn. I am even trying to get a friend to join me in learning to sign.

    Hello everyone

    I'm learning BSL again after a break of 25 years. You know what they say, use it or loose it! Luckily I've always remembered BSL finger-spelling, which seems to under-pin a lot of signs. I've set up a Signing Support Group at work, as lots of my colleagues are keen to learn too. We work at an historic visitor attraction and want to improve our inclusion efforts for deaf/hearing impaired people. Has anyone got suggestions for resources that we can use at our monthly meetings? Thanks for your help in advance.

    Hello

    My name is Julie. I am low tone deaf. I am autistic. I have passed unit 101. I have two exams in June. 102 and 103. I want to practice with people by video link please. I hope BSL will help me in daily life.

    Hello

    Hi everyone, I have started learning to sign BSL online, i works shifts so attending a class was just not going to work. I am at the stage now where i could really do with practice with someone. If you have the time and patience to help me please get in touch. I work for the ambulance service and tend to work four twelve hours shifts in a row then have for days off. I want to lean BSL so that i can understand patients who can not hear or who sign instead of talking. At the moment I have to write everything down i want to say and it feels very impersonal and frustrating. I live in Devon, and in my free time i like top cycle, paddleboard and walk my two dogs

    I’ve done level 1 and on with level 2. Falling behind a bit because of lack of practice and motivation. We’ll organise some days and times and go from there. Email me [email protected] Matthew
