Hi I’ve just started the course this weekend!

I’m Kay and I work in 2 SEN schools- 1 is a H/Imp Unit attached to a Primary. I’m a teacher and have been a Signalong tutor for 15 years but would like to learn BSL as a fluent language. Do you have to go thro’ all the official courses to qualify/ achieve accreditations? At the moment my vocab is approx 400 words! Would I have to start from scratch as it is a language rather than a Signing Support System, like Signalong?

Thanks ?

Hi Kay, nice to meet you. 

The online course I am doing allows me to skip the actual assessments, as I will just do the next course with them. I only therefore have to do the level 6 NVQ assessments. Means it is cheaper for me. I guess it depends what you are doing it for.

I’m not sure from the starting from scratch but I did a baby sing and sign, and quite a few of the words are different in BSL, and the way the sentences are structured are different too, so probably a beginning thing would be good. Hope that helps!

Bec ?

    • I am Bethan and I have only recently started learning BSL. I actually learnt the BSL alphabet from a poster in the toilet of a cocktail bar and have been inspired to learn ever since! I am a Civil Servant (Energy and Climate policy) and trained facilitator and I am excited to be able to draw this new skill into my work environment. Probably a little early but I am definitely keen in a few weeks to practice my signing with someone else.  Let me know if you are keen.  If anyone knows the sign
    • Hello. My name is Wiktoria, I come from Poland. Polish my native language. I currently go to university and study Sport and Exercise Science.   I always wanted to learn sign but didn’t know where to start. I have been learning for about 3 weeks now, and I am really enjoying it 😁 I actually found out about online British sign language courses through a girl (I cannot remember her name) on TikTok mentioning them.    I have found that I am struggling signing without saying the word
    • thank you so much! this has been really helpful. does SSE used the same signs as BSL?  I will do  thanks again 
    • Hi Ijacoby. This is Delia.  good question. a lot of people get confused with this. BSL is different from SSE (signed suported English.) BSL has its own grammer and not everyword is said for example saying whats your name? in BSL  is,  name you what?is signed name what?  Its difficult to explain as BSL is such a visual language.  Its a good question to ask your tutor. Good luck and enjoy your course.

    • Hi guys, I have recently started learning BSL - extremely beginner!! I am wondering when signing and talking at the same time do I say what I sign or say the sentence. For instance, when singing “name your what” do I say ‘name your what’ or ‘what’s your name’  Hopefully this makes sense!!
