Regional Sign Language

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

Sorry if this isn't about a specific sign.  I just wanted to know what region the British-Sign course was based on?  I live in the west midlands, and wondered if signs are the same or very different for each region?  I leant numbers when I was 14 (many moons ago now) in Shropshire.  When I learned the numbers on this course they were not what I was used to from before.  I then watched the two sisters on YouTube today (giving free lessons to children) and they used the number signs that I knew before. 

Any Advice would be greatly appreciated, as it's confusing t a newbie signer :0)  

Huge thanks

Laurie-Anne

    • I have a fascination with learning a new language all my life. I guess I just love the idea of being able to communicate with people from different cultures and backgrounds. I've learnt 'little bits' from a few languages; mainly around saying "hello, how are you?", that sort of thing, and having lived in both Germany and Cyprus, I have tried to learn German and Greek, being able to speak and read a good amount of each language. However I struggled to hold a conversation as I couldn't translate f
    • Hi. my name is Scott and I have recently retired from L&D. I have always enjoyed learning new skills and have, for some time now, wanted to learn BSL. I actually started an on-line course about a year ago and then work got in the way. Well I don't have that 'excuse' anymore, so have re-started my course and am enjoying learning once again. I live in the Liverpool area, and would welcome any support in learning this new skill.

      I have been wanting to learn BSL for the longest time. I am a primary school teacher... in university I learnt Makaton and have since used this in practice. As an NQT its hard to find time to learn things outside of what you need to do so like a lot of people making the most of Covid-19 isolation
