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 forgot about this post. I read somewhere that british-sign.co.uk uses a Guernsey dialect.
I haven't found any concrete proof of that, but it does appear the creators are based in Guernsey.

BSL has accents like any other language so you may not even be taught or learn from your area you might use say a manchester accent or london depending on where your teacher is from. You yourself with have your own take on the signs you learn and will do them differently to someone else so I wouldn't worry too much about regional signs if you are just learning. I would just do the basics and see how you get on.

    • I'm Laura, I'm 24 and I live in Scotland. I've wanted to learn BSL for a wee while, and I saw the introductory course was available so decided to jump in! I work in a nursery and plan to go on to study speech and language therapy, so this will definitely be a worthwhile course. ☺️
    • Building squeeze page before building opt-in business consumer email list The landing-age is imperative, and it should be appealing enough to grab the consideration of visitors. 'Squeeze Page' is not a site, but it is a single web page with little detail for consumer email list the sole aim of attracting audience to subscribe to the offer.If one does not have e-books to use product, they can find free e-books on the internet to download. Once, one has selected the product, they are all prepared to go to next aspect which incorporates receiving consumer email list service to get prospect details. One just needs an consumer email list program as it makes the process much easier. Some common features of corespondent services are unrestricted number of auto-res ponders consumer email list, scheduled mailings and personalized web forms.promises that range from questionable to outright nonsense. You must have perseverance when building your first consumer email list. All too often new marketers come online full of vim and vigor, powered up by promises of untold wealth to be made in short order online,    The reason for creating opt-in business consumer email list is to get e-mail addresses and names of individuals in exchange for helpful detail they may need.  Before long, these would-be online super-stars are frustrated, disillusioned and demotivated by their lack of results in building an consumer email list.  
    • I've wanted to learn BSL for a while for several reasons: partially because I would like to be able to communicate with Deaf people better in the workplace and partially to be more inclusive in social settings such as church.
    • Hi, I've wanted to learn BSL for a while but struggled to find an in-person course and then came across this online course which has been really good so far. I went to a primary school with a unit for hearing impaired children and learnt finger spelling there but 25+ years on and I still don't know much else!
    • hello! I decided to do a sign language course because I want to become a doctor and I think it's important to be able to communicate with anyone I come across to the best of my ability. I'm hoping to do an in person course at my collage to make my signing a bit better!
    • the number plate trick is such a good idea!!
    • Thank you for sharing this, I happen to work in early years and currently sign using what I have learnt so far in BSL or  Makaton. I can't wait to have a look at this site as I do work with a Deaf baby. ☺️💜    
    • Hi everyone,  First timer who has just started to lean BSL. Look forward to using it proficiently to speak to people all over London, although I am a slow learner when it comes to language.  I started as I work in the law enforcement in London, and have found that our translators (on the phone) can help a lot with other spoken languages, but we struggle to communicate with the deaf. I'd like to change that and learn the language to be able to speak to people from those communities. With London being so diverse, I'd like to take a small step in making communication easier.
