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 😀

    • Hello. I just refreshed my BSL Level 1 with an online course which was useful. Sorry not close enough to meet but am available to do video chat if you're interested. Thanks, Rob W.
    • Hello all. I have used BSL off and on over many years and am really only a beginner. However, I really want to commit to learning BSL and am keen to practise with someone. I am a qualified teacher (senior leader) and have used Makaton/SSE before but wish to move to a school with high number of D/deaf children. I am happy for anyone to contact me who wants to practise or who has any advice for me. Thanks, Rob W.

    • Hi everyone, I'm staring a level 1 BSL course at the end of April. Bit pre-emptive maybe, but I thought I'd sign up and maybe get a head start and introduce myself. My name's Liam, I have no previous experience with signing, but I'm training part time for the next few years to become a counsellor/therapist so I'm also looking to learn as much BSL and possibly some Makaton with the aim of becoming as inclusive a therapist as possible.

    • As weird as it sounds, I totally get this. I'm not learning BSL for D&D purposes, but one of my best friends who I play with is pretty good at it. I thought it'd make an excellent version of Thieves Cant or even the Drow Hand Signal Language (which is, essentially, very similar to BSL!). I'd definitely considered using it in a character too :D
    • Hey everyone... I'm just starting to learn BSL with an online course. I am very slow and I'm looking for practice partners in and around Liverpool. Prefer live practice but video chat also welcome. I'm hearing
      I have intermediate ASL so it's a little confusing but I'm making some progress...  Thanks and hope to hear from you soon
