  1. That was really good fun to watch!
  2. Signs aren't 100% the same everywhere so you get variations of hand and finger placement, I guess it's like having an accent in that someone from Kent will sign something differently to someone from Aberdeen so if you're been shown 2 things that are slightly different they're probably both correct. I was shown to sign 'D' like this
  3. Hi all, my name is Alice. I've been learning BSL from free online videos and websites for a while now, I don't live in a place where I can access BSL courses and I can't afford online courses so I've been teaching myself which is frustrating and slow and probably means I make a lot of mistakes without knowing. So far I can use SSE to sign along with a lot of the things I say but BSL grammar completely baffles me and understanding other people (on youtube seeing as I don't know anyone IRL who can sign) is almost impossible. It's disheartening, I feel like I've hit a wall with what I can accomplish by myself but now I've found this site hopefully this can help me get back on the right track! I'm not deaf and I don't know anyone who is, I'm learning BSL because the language is very interesting to me, I speak 2 spoken languages fluently (English and French), conversational German and I'm learning Dutch so I like to be able to communicate with lot of different groups of people and more importantly I like knowing that people can communicate with me if they need to.
