Introducing me

Recommended Posts

HI .. All.  Im  Maureen..   Ive  joined  this  website because this  on line  course  is  amazing  and encourages  people to learn. Courses  are now  rare  to find and are so expensive  it puts people off learning..

This  course is  amazingly  reasonably priced   and has unlimited access  for a year.. Its  AMAZING  . Congratulations and Well done  to all the creators.  Please  send   your  web  link  to my   website  and facebook  pages. 

My story  in brief: I had  wanted to learn to sign  since I was a child of  about 10 , (im 73  now) when I heard the story of  Helen Keller and her teacher  Anne Sullivan.  I finally  found a course  when I was  over  50  years old .

I was eager to  learn and encourage  everyone else to learn sign language too . I started helping others. I've  now been running  a voluntary sign language group  for 20 years... here in Southport. Merseyside.  I run 2 classes every week and we have   we also meet up at a local pub  for Meal/  communicate/ sign with  others  and watch a subtitled  film too. My group/ website is  www.practicemakesperfect.org.uk    and  has had  over 38,000  individual visitors  since 2004.   I share appropriate  video clips  to our facebook users  so that they can learn and  practice for their  BSL exams  no matter what level. Another of my facebook pages is    British signing on Skype which  brings  BSL  learners  together from anywhere so that they can practice and  improve.                    If you dont use it  .YOu loose it..   after all    Practice Makes Perfect. 

Maureen

    • Hi there, I've been learning BSL for about two years now and I'm currently half way through my level two course. I am studying occupational therapy at university and I was wondering if anyone on here has experience with occupational therapy as a Deaf service user or know of anyone who has used BSL as a method of communication while using occupational therapy?       
    • Not quite sure what you mean! I pressed the create button to make my original post asking for the BSL signs mentioned in my post. I don't see what you mean by suggesting I press the create button again!  
    • Hi there, I'm new to BSL and I am interested in how to teach English as a second language (ESL) to those who are hard of hearing and to those who are visually impaired. If there are any books that would give a seasoned ESL teacher pointers on how to do this, please can you recommend them. I look forward to receiving your recommendations and feedback.
    •  on the top of the page is a create button press that !
    • I wondered if anybody knows if there is a sign for papercrafting or something similar? I want to be able to tell my friends what my hobbies include without fingerspelling everything, which is arduous for them as much as for me. I make cards and other papercraft things. I also wonder if there is a sign for mermaid? My daughter is obsessed with them. I'm much the same with unicorns so if someone knows a sign for unicorn it would be much appreciated as the one time I tried I ended up trying to show a horn on my head and ended up making a rude sign, which was mortifying to say the least! Many thanks in advance for any help you can give x
    • Hi, I'm learning BSL as I am slowly losing my hearing, but also because I have deaf friends and want to communicate with them in their own language rather than just mine. Having completed a taster BSL course I am waiting to join a Level 1 BSL course in January. My friend has taught me quite a lot already although I realise its just a drop in the ocean as is the same with any new language. It takes time and practice to learn enough to get by!
    • Hi, I've just joined and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and learning from you and hopefully be able to help others. I've just completed a BSL taster course and am waiting to join a Level 1 course in January. I am slowly losing my hearing and have deaf friends so it would be nice to be able to communicate with them in their language rather than just mine, as well as provide for the future should my hearing get much worse. I currently wear hearing aids to assist me. I live just outside Kidderminster in Worcestershire, not far from Birmingham, with my hubby and youngest but grown-up daughter. We have two dogs and a cat who is even more anti-social than I am!
    • Is there anywhere in the Ashingdon, Essex area which does any BSL courses, for beginners, with a TBI?
