Hello from America!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I am an ASL/English Interpreter and live in Washington State. I really wish to learn different sign languages around the world and I am so happy to find this forum to learn more BSL.

Just in case this video isn't viewable to you, the first part of the video, I introduce myself in BSL. The second half is in ASL where I want to make it clear that I am not here to teach ASL but to learn BSL. I will occasionally share some ASL signs for clarity as BSL is so different and the same sign can have completely opposite meanings or even something very inappropriate in the other sign. As it is with any student and mistakes, do pardon me if I sign something offensive.

Hello @KaleLing - welcome!  It's great to have an overseas signer using these forums - I hope you learn some BSL and are able to offer advice.

We will be launching an ASL version of this site very soon so you will be able to share some of your ASL skills too.

    • Hey folks, 😄   I'm Carly,  I'm nearly 25 and probably like a lot of you, figured whilst stuck in a lock down? What better time to learn sign language! I've been meaning to learn for a long time as I am profoundly deaf and lip-reading is how I communicate 90% of the time. I started losing my hearing when I was about 4/5 and then lost the majority of my hearing when I was 12. Something got stuck down my right ear and went unnoticed by doctors and the like, so cut to 12 months later and i

    • Hi everyone! I'm Emma, 17 and I have always wanted to learn sign language. I just think it's so beautiful and mesmerizing to watch, plus it could come in handy one day! I've just started the online course whilst under isolation and am a little intimidated! It's a lot to remember but I'm loving it (especially loving the sign for Scotland - makes me giggle every time, anyone else think of Ross from Friends playing the  bagpipes when they do it?) . Anyway, hoping to learn more about the deaf c
