  1. Hi! I'm a student from the Netherlands and I'm doing some research on sign languages, I would really appreciate it if someone could help me by answering a few questions. What sign language(s) do you use? Do you sometimes struggle to communicate with people that don’t know sign language? How do you ususally overcome this? How often do you often encounter signs that you don’t know? How often do you experience that you use different signs than other people that use the same sign language? How much would you say your sign language depends on mouth movement and body language ?(just a percentage is enough) Was it hard for you to learn sign language? / Was it hard for you to learn a spoken language? What is the most important difference between sign languages and spoken languages? Do you use sayings that come from spoken languages in your sign language? Have you ever tried to communicate with another signing person that doesn’t know the same sign language? If so, what sign language and how much did you understand? Thank you in advance!
  2. Hi, I'm a student from the Netherlands. I am writing an essay on sign lanugages, one of them being BSL. I have a few questions for people that know a sign language and I would really appreciate it if you could answer them! I don't know a whole lot about deaf culture and sign languages, so please let me know if you find any of these questions inappropriate. For deaf or mute people: Do you sometimes struggle to communicate with people that don’t know sign language? How do you ususally overcome this? For anyone that knows sign: How extensive is the vocabulary in a sign language compared to a spoken language? Are there signs that you find hard? Do you often encounter signs that you don’t know? Do you often experience that you use different signs than other people that use the same sign language? How much would you say your sign language depends on mouth movement and body language? Was it hard for you to learn sign language? / Was it hard for you to learn a spoken language? What are, according to you, the major differences between spoken languages and sign languages? Do you use sayings in sign language, if so, are they the same as in spoken language, or are they specific to sign language? What’s your favourite part about deaf culture? Have you ever tried to communicate with another signing person that doesn’t know the same sign language? If so, what sign language and how did it go? Thank you in advance!

  4. Hello, my name is Alice :) I am a first year sixth form student currently trying to figure out what to do my extended project on. Over the first lock-down I completed the British-sign.co.uk introductory course to BSL since learning a language, especially one that is fairly common but not as well known to hearing people, interest me as well as the fact that I think I would like to go into a healthcare profession so it would be a valuable skill and I really enjoyed the learning that I did. I'm writing this post to determine peoples opinions on whether it would be okay to do an artifact project on BSL (a physical thing/performance, likely a video) or whether I should just do a dissertation on it/something else. I question this because I am hearing and do not know anyone who uses BSL to communicate, obviously I would do my research like I would for any project, however this does mean that I want to gauge whether making a physical thing (likely a "teaching" tool) is okay when it would be something I learn/teach myself. Part of the extended project expectation is to learn/develop a skill which I believe I would be doing, it is just a case of whether people think it is okay to "teach" something that I would first have to learn/that I have no understanding of already. Apologies if this doesn't make any sense, I'm more than happy to reiterate for any details I may have missed or not communicated well enough. If the answer to this question is common knowledge sorry, I like to clarify things when I am unsure. Thank you already to anyone who has taken the time to read this.
  5. I'm looking for members who work in a school - I'm keen to speak to people who have worked in education and who have had to work with Deaf/deaf students. I began my second teaching assistant role in April, during lockdown, and am learning BSL online for a deaf student I have been paired with, to support her in her home learning. I feel I am picking up signs fairly fast, and I think this is down to the fact that I have a real interest in learning BSL as a skill, and have done for years, but was too afraid to take the plunge and dip my toes in to a course. Now that I have a reason to do it - I love learning BSL and find it such a fascinating language. I would love to talk to some teachers or teaching assistants about any experience they have had with deaf students before or currently 🙂 please do get in touch! 💖

  7. 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
