I have just started learning BSL and have mastered the finger spelling and numbers ( although I have to think about the vowels and as long as it is not too fast!!) and I am now moving on to the next stage of learning signs for things. I'm not sure why it has always fascinated me, because I do not know anyone who uses it, but it has just always been something I have wanted to do, so whilst I am looking for work, I thought I would use my time to do something useful and rewarding. I look forward
Im lacey. i decided to learn BSL along side my childminding course. Im thoroughly enjoying it so far and have been using sign through out the day so even my kids have been picking up a few signs here and there
Hello! I'm a newbie, part way through and really enjoying learning. I'm left handed and following the left signs, but as I practice I notice that I flip between using both my left and right as primary hand. Obviously as a newbie my vocab is limited, so my question is does it matter? Do I need to work on this now before it becomes a problem further down the line, or does it not matter? Thanks!
I am 51and joining BSL as I want to make friends here and within the Deaf Community. I have been drawn to Sign language for many years and feel its important to be able to communicate effectively and fluently. I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

So I'm learning to be able to communicate better with the people I work with. I am loving the course so far (only on intro session 4) a
