LEVEL 1 PRACTICE EVENING ONLINE

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have just completed level one and want to practice before getting stuck into level two! I noticed that there were soooo many beginners who wanted to practice. This website seems to provide a space for video chat now! Shall we get organised???

Maybe on Sunday evenings at 6pm BST we could meet in the online video chat rooms to practice. Anyone up for it?

Thanks and hope to sign with you soon!

I'm up for this! I completed level 1 recently too, but that was a month ago where I haven't practised much since so already feeling rusty. Also just started level 2 (where I'm finding the signing too fast too follow!) so would be great to have people to practice with

@h.n.jootna How will this work in theory, would we do a group video chat via Skype or something? (I've only used Skype to communicate with one person, so no idea how a group one works!) And are we starting tonight?

Hello @MissJennyNg - This website has group video chatrooms (up to 4 people per room - but users can create as many new rooms as you like) - just click on the "BSL Chat Rooms" menu button at the top of this page :D

@Admin @h.n.jootna  I just tried to join, but I could only see myself..! I could see that Hope had joined the room, but there was only a blank screen where her face would be. I tried using the message facility within the room to reach her that way but got no response. Please can you explain how the chat room works, is there some other setting we need to enable?

Hello.  I'm sorry that you had difficulty using the chat rooms.

I can't see a particular problem with the server.  Can you confirm that you aren't using a mobile device as these aren't yet supported for the chat rooms?

Thanks

@AdminNope, I'm just using my Mac. The video WAS working for me and I could see myself - just not the other person.

I've just seen this message in the Chat Box from Hope @h.n.jootna: I have been in the room but nothing is working. I have tried to set up the camera and microphone and enter a nickname but the panel that appears on the left hand side of the screen wont work - it wont recognise my pointer/clicker!

Hi,

Sorry things didn't work out! I am just on my HP with Windows 10. It might be me being computer illiterate, but I tried a few times. I'll have another go before the next practice and hopefully I'll be able to sort things out, but I'll let you know if not!

Thanks,

Hope

PS - Jenny @missjennyng feel free to add me on Skype. My skype name is HopeNatalya.

No worries @h.n.jootna, I think there must be some compatibility issues, as there was one point where I had some other screen come up but it wouldn't let me select anything etc. I've sent you a Skype request anyway in the meantime. Fingers crossed we'll get it working somehow next Sunday!

Hello both - are you able to let me know what web browser you are using and if you are on Windows, or Mac (or something else?) - so that we can do a bit of testing and try to figure out why you weren't able to connect to each other.  Thanks

Hi, I'm not sure if this message will reach everyone in this thread (not sure how to do that) but just to say that me and Kaleigh @KaleLing managed to do a practice video chat last Sun 6pm BST if others wanted to join/try this Sunday. I'm out tomorrow but think Kaleigh will be there 😀

    • So a while ago I did  video for YouTube and have found it again. If you feel like practicing with me I'm open to helping out    
    • Cassie you are my hero! Thanks
    • Hi Alex, These may help... Forwards Defence Back (Last video):  You are correct about the sign for Black White Pairs Stay Close  (signs for 'near' only)   Also correct for well done/congrats: Well done
    • Hello, haven't used BSL since primary school, but have recently had some children who are deaf join a sports club I help with.  They have a translator with them but I was wondering if you could help me out with a few words so if they are watching us coach rather than their translator they will still get what we are saying Forwards (position) and Go Forwards Defence Go back Black (I believe this is moving your fist along your jawline?) White Pairs Stay Close Well Done (or is congratulations - thumbs up in moving in circles - good for this?)   Thank you in advance! Alex
    • Hello,  This year I have completed a level 1 BSL summer school and had a handful of weekly level 2 1-1 lessons. I really need to have more conversation practice. I'm looking for someone of the same if not higher ability than me to Skype on a weekly basis. I would much prefer a female buddy if possible.  Look forward to signing with you!  Jasmine  
    • Hello Sharon,  I started weekly level 2 lessons in July and did a level 1 summer school. I have no links to the deaf and signing community other than my current 1-1 tutor. Would you be interested in skyping once a week for a 'voice off' short conversation? I can try and commit to a weekly half hour slot or better still we could decide on a weekly adhoc basis?    Jasmine 
    • Hi all im Lisa, I work for a care agency and support a variety of clients, recently we took on a package which are a married couple who are both mute/deaf, she has dementia as well and due to other issues is struggling with her mobility, im trying to learn different signs that help with her care routine, for example I would like to print off and laminate some cards with signs on such as stand, sit, move back etc.   I'm hoping that if the sign is on the card along with the command then carers will begin to pick up bits of the signing which would be a great way of communicating with them.   thanks for reading x
    • Hi all, my name is Nai and I started learning BSL at the beginning of Aug 2018.  I completed the Introduction to BSL through 'British Sign' and am absolutely loving it.  Am keen to move forward with the next level and practice with others. x
