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.

    • I just completed the BSL introductory course online and thought I would introduce myself, as suggested.  I would like to do more online BSL courses and find a way to practise online with others.    
    • Hi Sarge. I see a lot of posts here have no replies so I'd like to buck that trend. I hope you enjoy coming to the UK. I'm autistic like most of my family. My little brother is autistic too and has learning difficulties and we used to sign with him. That's probably where we began. We started with Makaton and then desired to learn a proper language, then learnt SSE, and now I'm learning BSL proper. BSL is such a wonderfully expressive language that says more quicker than many English words could.
    • I've lots of reasons for learning and am interested to meet people who have similar interests to share vocabulary Im a GP and I want to make my practice more inclusive. I'll still need interpreters, of course, but I'd like to be able to make it more accessible for people to communicate their needs without booking on or relying on an app Im a Scout leader and work with another leader who is Deaf and signs. We already sign together and hope to provide more opportunity for young peo
    • Oh, and I'm autistic and play dungeons and dragons, which means I have loads more vocabulary to develop in the field of neurodiversity and fantasy games!
    • Hi all, New to the forum (obviously). I'm a GP in Wales. I learnt for several years a few decades ago before education moved properly away from SSE towards BSL so I am having one to one lessons as my vocabulary is better than my language structure, and then hope to slot back into a group. My motivations are manifold: I am a GP and want to make my practice more inclusive to Deaf people. I am a scout leader and work with another leader who is Deaf and signs (again, he is older like me so
    • I wrote in my previous post introducing myself my reasons for wanting to learn so I'll just repeat what I wrote there: I am learning to help my younger brother express himself better and speak to d/Deaf people in a way they may find more comfortable.
    • Hello, My name is Sarge. I am a recent high school graduate heading to the UK for university at the end of the year. I've started learning BSL to keep my mind active over the hols as well as hopefully help my autistic younger brother communicate better. I've seen online that sign language may help children like him express themselves and I think this is very important, and being able to converse with d/Deaf in a way they may feel more comfortable with is a huge plus.  Thank you, S
