  1. I've worked in retail since I was 16 and the times when I'm serving a deaf person is really difficult, so I dread to think what life is like for them all the time. It's one of those things that I keep meaning to do, I did a bit of signing with my son when he was tiny - but that was SSE, so he had the structure for spoken English. Even just knowing some basic signs though had also helped at work, when a deaf person could lip read, but was beaming when I included some signs too, because I'd made the effort for her. That pushed me to pursue it further and I'm finding it really interesting.
  2. Hi I'm Jo, learning sign is something I'd always wanted to do, but never got around to booking on a course. I used some BSL signs with my son, before he could speak and while he was learning. That then got me thinking more about BSL, I wanted to learn how to properly structure sentences and develop my vocab so I could have conversations that were more than just baby talk. I'm finding it really interesting, how it all works and really want to continue studying, when I've done my level 1.
  3. Hiya, I'm studying level one and have been given some videos to interpret to test my knowledge, however, I really don't understand some of the signs and can't find them in my training. I wondered if anyone could shed any light on them please. I've written out the rest of the sentence, as I understand it, for context and described the signs I don't understand in brackets. 1. Monday my work starts what time? 8. Friday I work (flat hand moves across face) 2. Summer I love why? (fist in circles in front of mouth) day 3. Easter when? spring - march, april (two fingers brush from flat palm to fingers twice) 4. Saturday I eat (both hands in fists, like they're holding frying pan handles) - does it just mean a fry up? Thank you in advance for any light you can shine on these, it's hard to search for what BSL signs mean, it's not like learning French where you can just Google, "what does escargot mean?"
