  1. By the way... real deaf people don't sign like me as I am slow and exaggerated. I like this you-tuber for syntax

  2. Hello! I'm Siobhan and I'm from Gloucestershire. I'm currently not working (and have been out of work since Feb 2020) but I am due to start a fab job at the end of the month. I'm passionate about Hospitality and I will be a Reservations Agent for a local company who own a few properties in the area. I am a total bookworm, and am a massive Friends/GOT/TVD and Mock The Week nerd! I am married to a Chef and we have two daughters (12 & 16) (oh and I can't forget our cats Milo & Missy!). In all honesty, I only thought about learning BSL after I had my second daughter in 2009 but s

  3. I work across two libraries and have been able to sign up to a British Sign Language course as part of keeping our skills up-to-date during the pandemic. I undertook a short class in school but had always wanted to learn more, (not that I can remember anything from that long ago!). Some of our customers struggle hearing us and a few of our current ones are fluent in sign language, so it would be beneficial to not only interact with them, but to promote the library service as accessible to others who perhaps feel put off by communication barriers. A lot of learned behaviours and perceptions for

  4. Hi everyone my name is Cherene and I am 27 years old. I am currently a 2nd year student nurse and a mom to a 9 year old beautiful girl.

  5. Hi all, I'm Nici. I just thought I would introduce myself as I have been learning BSL for a few weeks now & I'm very much enjoying it so far. I decided to change a few areas of my learning as I have plenty of free time at the moment to learn new thins.

  6. Hello folks I'm Phil, started learning a couple of weeks ago and finding it fascinating and occasionally amusing. The sign for penguin had me in stitches! It made me think that there should be a word similar to onomatopoeia for when a sign looks like the thing it's representing, in the same way onomatopoeic words sound like what they represent. I'm an out of work (due to long term health issues) history graduate who lives in Greater Manchester and volunteers at a foodbank so I at least do something worthwhile with my life despite the limitations my health puts on me.

  7. Hi! My name is Miri and I'm a journalist and baker living in Stirling, Scotland. I'm learning BSL because I feel like its a skill I should have, considering how many people use it as their first language. I wouldn't want to miss out on a friendship with someone! That's it really. If anyone can help me sign the following things more easily than finger spelling that would be amazing! Baker Journalist Stirling

  9. Hi Miri! My name is Matilda ☺️ I think your reason for learning BSL is really lovely I have always wanted to learn to BSL (and now I finally am), but hadn't even considered the possibility that I could be missing out on friendships!

  10. Hi, I am in the process of re-learning Level 1 (after many years of not using it) and am also teaching some bits and pieces to the primary school children I teach. We have been learning family signs and are wanting to use them in conversations e.g. How is your Mum? Could someone please tell me the sentence structure for how you would say this? Would it be 'your mum how?' Obviously the sign for 'how are you?' doesn't use the individual 'how?' sign, but am i right in assuming 'how is you mum?' would? Many thanks

  11. I am the Intention Coach (health coach and performance artist). Essentially I teach embodiment through meditation, yoga, performing, massage therapy and exercise. With embodiment in mind, I am quickly learning that BSL isn’t just a langue, it’s a form of therapy and I’m only a few lessons in but it feels amazing to connect with langue and communicate in such a way I’m going to be taking a year-long vow of silence from October 2021-2022, but during this time I wanted to ensure that I could still express how I felt etc… So I decided what better way that to learn sign language!
