    Hi!

    I go by Nova (He) and I've been learning BSL for about 6 months maybe? I also know some ASL and I used to be better at ASL but now I default to BSL. I've been trying to find a site like this for AGES to chat with other learners/users of BSL. SEE is obviously easier naturally but I'm trying to get better at BSL Syntax! I'm 18 and from Scotland
  2. Hello How are you? I am good! My name is Lee-Ann I am 29 years old I live in England, London I work as a Teaching Assistant Thank you Bye
  3. Hello my name is Charlie. I am learning BSL to me more inclusive when I meet people, and to sign to a Deaf dustbin driver at my work. I am interested in video games and Chess, and enjoy learning a lot, so I decided to learn a language that I've always been interested in. I am looking forward to hearing from the community, and finding out whether there is a Deaf community in South London. Thank you all!
  4. Hi, my name is Leia. I am a primary school teacher who has always wanted to learn sign language, not just so I am able to communicate and teach children who have hearing difficulties, but also to be able to teach hearing children how to be inclusive. I feel like basic sign language is something all children should learn. I have learnt the basics before whilst at university, but wanted a more in-depth knowledge/ refresher. Everyday, when I take the register (morning and afternoon) I sign good morning and good afternoon to the children who answer the register by signing (and saying) this back to
  5. Hello, my name is Emma. I'm working through the british-sign.co.uk course "Intro to BSL", and supporting colleagues at work to do the same. I've done something similar several times before, so I'm hoping this time my brain catches on this is something I'd like it to remember. I first met BSL as a child, through friends who are deaf, and completed Level 1 and 2 courses as a teenager in Northern Ireland. However, I'm not a natural at learning languages and years of not using it enough make it hard to recall. But practice makes good, right?!
  6. Hi everyone! My name is Lucy, I'm 17 and I'm hearing. I started the british-sign.co.uk course during quarantine, as it was reduced in price so I had the chance to get it! Part of the course is to introduce yourself on this forum but honestly this place looks really lovely so I'll likely hang around some more and meet some of you. Once I've finished the course to gain some vocabulary, I'll be looking for some conversation partners around my age so I can get used to talking to another person. I'm really looking forward to being able to converse in this awesome language, but for now he
  7. πŸ‘‹πŸ» Hello I've just started learning BSL, I've always thought that BSL should have been an option when learning languages at school. I don't have anyone in my immediate circle who uses BSL but I have always wanted to learn. I'm part of an additional needs parenting group and a few of their children use sign language, because they're either deaf or struggle to communiate verbally. I am currently not working so thought now the kids are back to school I'd make the most of my time and learn a new language. Katie x
  8. Hi, My name is Rachel and I am learning BSL with british-sign.co.uk I am able to hear and have hearing impaired family members. Although none of them use signing to communicate, they rely on hearing aids and lip reading. I would greatly appreciate any assistance whilst I am learning to sign to ensure I am communicating clearly and can't wait to have a conversation with you. I have always wanted to learn BSL and am here to make friends. Please excuse me in my pyjamas for my introductory video! I'm looking forward to meeting you.
  9. I have been meaning to learn BSL for some time. I love collecting and learning languages and my interest in BSL stems from there. At the same time I work in education and I am trying to broaden my experience and knowledge to enrich my own work. It would be great to meet some other people at a similar stage to me and maybe practise some time!
  10. Hi my name is Sam and I am a Teaching Assistant in a local Primary SChool. I am currently at home working and thought I'd put the time to good use and learn BSL. Ive always been fascinated with sign language and there is no better time or opportunity to learn. I am hopeful of sharing this new language with friends, family and students in the future. Lovely to meet you all and share in this new found learning
  11. Hi! My name is Laura-Kate and I've just started the BSL course. I had tried to start it a couple of months ago but my health got in the way. I am going to set myself a little task each week of completing a unit a week and trying to get onto the fingerspelling leaderboard! I'm really looking forward to teaching myself sign language as I have always wanted to do it for years!
  12. Hi there everyone I was doing the BSL online course and was directed here. I thought I'd swing by the forum I work as a science teacher and I took part in a webinar for helping low ability learners access content we teach. One of the things that got me was some students simply don't know what some words mean and can't spell them. I took it upon myself to try and learn completely new form of language (I know bits and bobs on European languages) to put myself in the position of non-English speakers, low ability and dyslexic students, to go through what they experience I am really
  13. Hi! My name is George and I've been interested in learning sign language for quite some time but I could never find great sources that taught me everything in the same place so I only learned little bits here and there I'm really looking forward to continuing to learn!
  14. Hello everyone! Im PD, joining in this excellent looking site and forum. I’ve read a few intros from others and feel a little churlish doing one myself! I’m just someone who has always wanted to learn BSL but never taken that first step. So, with a little encouragement from my friend @Jeetus Maximus Sohpal here I am! I’ve never been great at languages, but BSL is something I’d like to learn so that maybe one day I could be of some help to someone from the Deaf or deaf community. I think it will be a LONG road for me😁, but I look forward to making some new friends here an
  15. Hello! My name is Alice, I live in Coventry and I'm 25 years old.
  16. Hi! I'm Gina and I live in Scotland. At work I have encountered some Deaf people and I have felt bad for not being able to communicate with them in their language so I finally took the decision of learning it. I find the course very interesting and I really enjoy it!
  17. Hey Folx! My name's Blake, He/Him, and I've just started properly learning BSL. I've known odd bits and pieces for a long time like finger spelling, basic introductions and random words since I'm an early years educator and have picked up pieces from children and parents. I've been looking for a local course to participate with for a while, but I have anxiety and a limited budget, so i'm now learning online and it seems to be going really well so far. I'm currently a Primary Teaching student; i'm hoping to learn in order to help the children/parents/carers I interact with as well as
  18. Hi my name is Danielle.
  19. Hi all, My name is Ilona and I am a trainee teacher trying to learn a new skill whilst in quarantine. Hope you are all well! Thanks, Ilona
  20. Hi Everyone! My name is Abi, I'm a 24 year old Technical Fashion Designer that lives and works in London. I wanted to learn BSL to make the most out of lockdown. I'm hoping to turn a difficult situation into something productive and helpful! I have just completed assessment 3 and I am really enjoying it. I have been trying to look for a way to sign 'Fashion Designer' but I can't seem to find this. Does anybody know this sign? Or is it best to fingerspell in this instance? I am looking forward to learning more and getting to know you all!
  21. Hello everyone. My name is Isabelle, I'm 21 and I'm a psychology PhD researcher living in Birmingham though I'm originally from Ireland. I'm really looking forward to getting better at BSL. I have been meaning to learn a sign language for a long time as my mother is a paediatric occupational therapist and as a small child she taught me bits and pieces of ISL and makaton which she uses with some of her clients. It seemed really cool to me that people who couldn't hear or speak oral/aural languages had developed a system to communicate anyway. As a child it seemed like a super cool secret c
  22. Hi guys I briefly began to learn BSL when I was about 12 or 13 and I have always been fascinated to learn more. 10 years later and I am learning BSL as a full-time hobby and, hopefully, I can find something (i.e. a career or voluntary work) where I can begin to use it in day-to-day life. I am really enjoying the course so far and look forward to completing my Level 1 this year.
  23. Hi my name is Ariane I am new to BSL. I live in Manchester I work in a nusery. I wanted to learn BSL for some time.
