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 Am new to BSL and new to this site. I attend beginner class at my local college but it's not accredited. I can fingerspell but really struggle to 'read' fingerspelling!  Am working my way through learning vocabulary but only seem to retain a very small amount. Any help on offer greatly appreciated.  
    • Does anyone teach BSL IN local area of mother well or Glasgow for beginners .
    • I don't really have a need for BSL, however it has always intrigued me. I've tried to learn vocal languages with little success and now I'm trying a visual one in the hope that it's something I can get. So far it's going OK, but need loads od practice... Scott
    • Hi there. I'm Amy and I'm brand new to BSL, I'm currently going to weekly Level 1 classes. I already knew the alphabet as my Nana had a poster of the signs in her house but I've been wanting to learn BSL properly for most of my life really. I have only now been able to afford classes. My Nana is hard of hearing (80% deaf in one ear and 50% deaf in the other), and my dad is starting to lose his hearing more too. So mostly I'd like to learn it for them as my Nana knows some BSL and since starting this course my dad has said he's going to go on a course too. My hearing isn't great either, it's only gonna get worse, and I'm on the autistic spectrum so sometimes I feel non-verbal so I'm hoping BSL will help me in that aspect too. Anyway I've waffled for long enough. Nice to meet y'all.
    • Hello! My name is Cecylia and I'm a doctor, trying to learn BSL in my spare time. I've learned the basics of ASL but since moving to the UK, I've had to start from scratch - but well worth the effort. I hope to be able to communicate with my patients without the use of an interpreter in the near future! 
    • Hi  My name is David, I am new to BSL and really quite bad at it after 5/6 weeks at a evening class in Poole Dorset.  
    • Hello, I'm a newbie to BSL and have been trying my hardest to my best. I started learning BSL because I have a non-verbal cousin who uses BSL, and I just want to talk to him really. It also should help me become a better teaching assistant.
    • I have always been interested in learning to sign, but became really dedicated to learning BSL properly when I met my partner who is deaf; although she communicates really well verbally she also likes to use BSL alongside this, and sometimes this is an easier way for us to communicate depending what setting were in/noise levels etc. As well as this my partner has a lot of deaf friends who all use BSL, so through starting this course it enables me to communicate with them a lot better and understand what's being said in conversations, although I'm still getting used to how fast some people sign! I am also starting a Nursing degree soon, so feel being able to sign would be beneficial for my career and for supporting/ interpreting for those that do have a hearing impairment
