  1. Thank you for hosting! (I can post video here because computer says no.) 🙂 Glad I could make it this week!
  2. Hi, I'm wondering what signs people use for boyfriend or partner? Like is the one for 'boyfriend' specifically for young people like teenage type years? I'm 40 and I have a long-term partner who I don't live with who I call my 'boyfriend' in conversation, but would that be a weird sign to use in BSL like 'partner' is more age-appropriate? I've seen some variations on the signs so I'm just curious as to what suits best. Oh, I can't post video here as my computer (a Mac) doesn't seem to support Flash, otherwise I'd love to post videos!
  3. I haven't made it to any of the online sessions yet as I'm a single parent to a very active 3-year-old who likes to make a lot of noise, but I hope I can make it on the 25th! It will depend on my work as well (I'm self-employed, so when I get the chance, I work myself into the ground in the constant fear that it'll suddenly dry up!), but I really want to make time for a bit of practice with other BSL beginners if I possibly can!
  4. Hi! I’m from Melton Mowbray and I’d love to learn the sign name for the town if anyone here knows it. 🙂 (Maybe it’s a pork pie, haha!)
  5. Hey SAMM, it's funny, but for me I struggle most with the vowels! I think because they are not quite so distinctive - I struggle most with the 'middle' ones, O and I!
  6. I'm a total newbie, so don't take my word for it, but I've seen it given like this as well.
  7. Hi! I'm new and I just posted a thread in the introductions section. I'm only on the very first lesson of my course, so I'm not really at a level to practice with someone else yet! But hopefully as I progress through the lessons, eventually I'll get good enough to maybe practice through video chat or something. The course recommended me to only do one new lesson a week, though, so it might take a while ...

    I'm Kat and I've just started trying to learn BSL through British Sign's online course. Looking forward to it!
