My name is Miriam - no surprises there & I learnt basic BSL many years ago, but never had anyone to converse with since.
I am EXTREMELY rusty with it now. But every now & again, I surprise myself when little bits poke out through the cobwebs of my brain, when I am in social situations.,
For the last 4½ years I have volunteered at a local open-air museum & find that I am coming into contact with sign-world more & more. So, as I was raised with 'ignorance is no excuse' ♥, I decided to give my butt a severe kick & 're-learn' myself.
I originally learned basic BSL because I had already learned basic Spanish & basic German, so why not a third language
So here I am &, if it's okay with you, I would like to just meander around the forum for a few days, just to find my way around & familiarise myself with sign again?
ps - I can't find a sign which portrays the word 'basic' - as in 'basic sign language'
I also can't get the finger-spell challenge to work - it accepts my name entry, but won't allow 'GO' to be selected.
