Hello my name is chandelle and I'm new to bsl. 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. The sentence that I want to translate to bsl is: Hello my name is chandelle and my presentation is about the book a quiet kind of thunder. Could someone please help me translate this to bsl because it's a little bit confusing as a beginner. In advance I would like to thank the person who would be so nice to help me.
Hello! I'm from Italy and now living in London. I've just started learning BSL. I decided to approach BSL for a simple reason actually, because in my new workplace some of my colleagues are deaf: I feel curious and I would like to communicate with them. Now that I've started learning more about how BSL is structured I'm discovering it to be such a fascinating way to communicate. Can someone tell me how long usually does it takes to be confident in signing? I really hope to be able to hold a proper conversation soon!
