In about a week and a half I have my English presentation about a book that's mainly about bsl so I thought it would be nice to introduce myself in bsl but I need a little bit help with it.

    Solar Bear Theatre Company

    Solar Bear is a theatre company that does things differently. Inclusion and collaboration are at the heart of our mission. We work with deaf and hearing actors, theatre makers, artists and young people. We reach out to those often excluded from the arts. Working more inclusively and collaboratively makes us think in radically different ways. It shapes who we work with. It inspires us to play with new ways of storytelling. It influences the stories we tell, and where and how we tell them.
  4. Solar Bear has a new production touring Scotland in Autumn 2019. The production is created for and by Deaf & Hearing Young People age 12-18yrs, working with a professional team of theatre makers. The production is touring to schools in Glasgow, Dingwall, Dundee & Irvine. The final week will take place at Macrobert Arts Centre, Stirling between 14th - 18th October and will be open to the public as the schools are on holiday.

    Tutors wanted during filming

    Hello, My name is Zoltan and I am one half of a producer duo working on a new short film with BSL talent attached. As one of our actors is of school-age we would love to find a tutor who would be willing to come on a 5 to 6-day shoot, freelance, later this year or mid-February next year. If you know of anyone or if you are a teacher/tutor yourself we'd love to hear from you. Of course, this is a paid role. The shoot will take place in Ireland and therefore we are happy to consider applicants from across the UK and Ireland. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. Many thanks again and thank you for accepting me on your forum. Have a lovely rest of your day! Zoltan
  6. Hello ๐Ÿ˜ My name is Nicholas Bieber (no, I'm not related to Justin Bieber, ha!), I'm 25-years-old and I have moderate hearing loss. I have to wear hearing aids every day, but fortunately I can hear with them, and they have enabled me to mix with fully hearing people and enjoy my career as a journalist. Sadly though, for so many people this is not the case ๐Ÿ’” Many, like my grandparents, are fully deaf and will never get to experience the special emotions that come with listening to music ๐Ÿ˜” So I've done something special (I hope)! ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ“น I learned British Sign Language as a young boy, so I could comminicate with my grandparents, and ended up getting a qualification in it (in levels 1 and 2). I have now started a special YouTube channel where I interpret songs into sign language! For my second video (link posted after this sentence), I performed the incredible Lost Without You by Freya Ridings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQaT8sI1EsE&feature=youtu.be I'd be SO honoured and grateful if you could share this with your friends and family, and in doing so, helping me to raise awareness of this beautiful language. I feel sign language should be a compulsory subject in schools, as it is just as important as learning Spanish, French and German. So let's help achieve that! ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š Nicholas Bieber Twitter: @nickbieber https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChgIoos70jvkhzQnGy1TSkw
  7. Hello, A bit about me: I'm 27. I have been studying BSL on my own for just under two months. My vocabulary is about 325 words + the alphabet. I would love to take a public class to further my skills (especially grammar!), but here's the catch: I live in japan! So I'm looking for someone who has advanced level BSL to meet with once a week over Skype for lessons. I am more than happy to pay for the private tutoring. Would anyone here be interested in this, or know of a resource to find an online tutor? Japan and UK timezones match up so that we could meet in the UK-morning/Japan-evening. Thanks!

  10. Hi everyone my little boy is six years old has Down syndrome and Autism spectrum Condition. His hearing is fine but his speech is severely delayed and is only just beginning to emerge - parts of words and sounds but they're mainly copied. He attends a school which teaches BSL throughout so although he started on Makaton he has been learning BSL for the last three years. His signing is once again just copying others however when his one to one signs to him he clearly has a good understanding of the signs. We have been trying to learn BSL through books etc but I'm looking for a suitable course in the Liverpool area. The night school courses aren't suitable they seem to be aimed at adults whereas I need infant type subject matter also they are ยฃ800 basic level. Any ideas? Thanks x

    Class Locations?

    Hiya! Complete newbie here; I've only been learning within the past week or so. Learning BSL has always been something I've wanted to do, but never made the time for๐Ÿ™„ I've been lucky enough have a friend who has been helping me via FaceTime, although our schedules never seem to match up very well. I've got a dictionary book on order via his recommendation, and watching youtube videos. I had a quick look on the calendar section and noticed that there are a few classes held in different locations... is anyone on this forum from Cambridgeshire area? Looking for someone who would be able to help me out in person with tutoring โ˜บ๏ธ E x
  12. Hi there, I'm new to BSL and I am interested in how to teach English as a second language (ESL) to those who are hard of hearing and to those who are visually impaired. If there are any books that would give a seasoned ESL teacher pointers on how to do this, please can you recommend them. I look forward to receiving your recommendations and feedback.

  16. I am currently carrying out research around this area. It would make a big difference if people could take their time to fill out this questionnaire after reading the consent form. I am teacher in training, currently writing a report on 'how can we implement sign language into mainstream school to promote inclusion'. parent questionaire.docx online consent letter.docx
  17. Hi, I was just wondering, what is the sign for Wales, Rose, Diamond and Platinum? Thanks, -Kayla
  18. Hey, we're having some Deaf Society visitors to our farm on Saturday and would love to know the sign for ALPACA - or LLAMA as alpacas are quite specific! I've seen this pic on the internet but was unsure if this is ASL or accurate. We had a BSL interpreter who visited last year tell us the signs for PIG, GOAT, SHEEP, DUCK, CHICKEN but she had never signed an alpaca before! I'm so nervous to have a BSL conversation for the first time, but hopefully the sign CAKE along with some real cake should keep everything ticking over. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Autism and Deafness Research

    Hello, My name is Amelia and I am a research assistant with the Child Orientated Mental Health Intervention Centre looking at diagnosing Autism in deaf children. To give you a little background about our study, we are recruiting families with children aged 2-18 who are either deaf, deaf with a diagnosis of ASD or hearing with a diagnosis of ASD. We have worked with international experts to adapt three autism assessment tools to make them more accessible for deaf children and young people. Surprisingly, current assessment tools have not been designed with deaf children in mind and many are often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all! We hope that this research will help us to develop better assessment tools, understand more about how autism presents in deaf and hearing children and support families in receiving the right support Autism regularly goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed in deaf children because inappropriate assessments are being used. We are currently recruiting: - Deaf children with autism - Deaf children with no autism - Hearing children with autism Please email me at [email protected] if you can help out and I hope to hear from you soon!

    Emergency Signs

    Hi! I am a high school student that is planning a project to create a booklet of basic signs in a variety of different sign languages around the world for emergencies used by healthcare professionals. I was wondering if anyone could help me with some BSL grammar. I just have 5 questions that needs to be translated, but still haven't quite grasped the concept of sentence structuring in BSL. 1. "Where does it hurt?" into HURT WHERE? 2. "What is your name?" into NAME YOU WHAT? 3. "Do you know sign language?" or "Do you sign?" into SIGN YOU? 4. "Do you consent?" into CONSENT YOU? 5. "Do you have any family we can call?" into FAMILY HAVE CALL? Are any of these correct? I'd appreciate any form of help I can get! Thank you in advance for helping me in the process of creating this booklet for local hospitals to communicate with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. (Also, if anyone knows other sign languages: Chinese, French, Russian, or Spanish, and can help with some grammar or words, please contact me: [email protected]!
