  1. It floats my boat! Nice and slow, easy to read ?
  2. That seems to be correct according to… – http://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/pepper-1.html Mind you he doesn’t seem to happy about Peppers. Maybe he doesn’t like them…
  3. Ah I think I was completely of track there according to this video… http://www.signbsl.com/sign/pepper
  4. Sorry Bec, that was my first thought as well. Maybe the letter P then hand flickering away from the mouth similar to the sign for Garlic?
  5. For my two pennyworth I think that BSL SHOULD be taught in schools. When I was in school, several er well many years ago (approx 1900 and black&white!) I learnt to finger spell. We had a new boy in the class who was HOH and he taught us to finger spell. The whole class learnt real quick. The teacher thought we were real nice kids, which of course we were ? but we soon learnt that when the teacher was not looking at us we could talk to each other with finger spell. imagine what we could have done with sign! So for lots of reasons I say YES. Teach BSL in schools. What do you say?
  6. Hi Bec, Thank you for the welcome. I have watched your videos and am proud to say I understood quite a bit. I need to get a camera then I will put some of my efforts up here. BSL is a great second language, as you say no need to adapt to a different accent. See you later, Colin
  7. Hi all, I’m a beginner to BSL but improving every day… hopefully! I’m bi-lingual English/French and also speak Flemish/Afrikaans and a little Hebrew and very bad Chinese. I come to BSL via watching “Switched at Birth” an American series using ASL. Already I’ve noticed quite a few same signs in ASL as in BSL. Cheers all. ?
  8. I don’t know what the sign for Chinchilla is but my wife and I used to have several Chinchillas and I always thought of them as giant mice so maybe the sign for mouse and make it HUGE! Just a guess ?
  9. I’ve watched it several times and can’t understand it but then I’m not as good as the little girl! I could blame Santa’s gloves LOL ?
