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, I'm Catherine, not sure what to do here as each time I clicked something it froze? Anyway, I'm 61 yrs young, I'm from the Wirral, Cheshire, UK. Long story short... At 16yrs of age I decided everyone should know sign language. I knew nothing about it apart from my brother had joined the specials police and was given the alphabet to learn. Of course, he never, but I did. And that was it, the start of my journey. I've signed every since. Taught myself from books, reality hard work! And later became an Interpreter for the deaf. Absolutely  loved my job but due to health problems I had to give up work. Devastated me as I loved it. But I've never stopped signing. Taught many people over the years and still do as and when I'm able. Then... I became deaf, 😮 I wear 2 hearing aids but they've told me what I have will eventually go totally deaf. It goes completely on me but comes back to the level I have, he said one day it will go and it won't come back. It was a struggle initially getting used to the deafness, but I'm not bothered, I was well prepared wasn't I! God has been very good to me. I use BSL and SSE, I'm probably way behind worth the BSL touch, but I'm never too old to listen and improve! I hope!  So I have communication and since I've taught all my friends to sign...it means I've plenty of people I can chat to! 😉 Sorry, that's a long post! 😱

    • Hey, I'm 20 from England too currently learning BSL Level 1 and need someone to practice with, if you're still up for it?
    • Hi! I'm Laura-Jane, i'm 19 and am in my second year at University studying British Sign Language and Interpreting. I found this forum whilst looking for extra fingerspelling practice but I'm also looking forward to getting to know other people who also have an interest in BSL!  X
    • Hello everyone, my name is Cynthia  I'm interested in learning sign language because because I think it is a very beautiful language to learn.
    • Hi this year my daughter started to go deaf due to an auto immune condition called Cogans. In the future she may get progressively worse and lose her hearing so I want to learn BSL in case that happens.
