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 everyone,  My daughter Daisy (10) and I have signed up together to do this course as I have always loved to be able to learn and never felt confident enough to do it. My daughter had a one off lesson at school and came home saying 'wouldn't it be amazing to be able to talk to someone with hearing difficulties when no one else could do it' so here we are! 
    • Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm am doing BSL to be able to be better at communicating to the children and young adults that i work with 
    • Hi all My name is Nadia (known as Badja). I am learning BSL to help me progress to be a SEN assistant in school and help children with learning difficulties to swim.  Hope you are all keeping safe and well  
    • Hello everyone. I am so happy I found this page as I am relatively new to signing and I could use a group like this with all you lovely people. I work as a SENDCo at a primary school. I was wondering if anybody here has come across a helpful scheme/program that I could use/adapt for our school. I want to make sure that children are taught the right level of BSL and the right topics but there is so little guidance out there. Thank you in advance!
    • Good morning, afternoon, evening! My name is Sirius, well technically it is my nickname but I don't go by my birth name. I am 25 years old, I used to work on psychiatric wards both private and NHS run but I quit my job as a support worker before the recent pandemic hit the UK.  I have always had a love for BSL, I have learned little bits a pieces here and there over the years but never anything substantial enough to communicate properly. I have decided to fully educate myself now because
    • Hello. Was just interested what sign language do you use if not BSL to communicate with your brother. Is there another sign language used in the UK?
    • Hi just started learning BSL. I'm a student paramedic so I figure it will be useful. Also looking forward to using it with my downs friend (who prefers signing to talking). So far I can spell, count, and make basic sentences and questions to do with locations, colours, and jobs. It's amazing, Ive only been learning a few days and I feel I can already have a (very) basic conversation.
    • My name is Beth, i am 24 and a qualified Occupational Therapist working in the NHS for 2 years. Working for the NHS during the lockdown period i continued to work, more shifts, later shifts and I had to adapt massively to the changes in service to meet the needs of our patients during lockdown and coronavirus. I chose to begin BSL as something to distract myself when home, my younger brother has Autism and we communicate through sign, albeit not british sign language, i learnt basic signs t
