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.

    • Hello @libby jo - Happy to help.  What are you trying to work out?
    • I'm not quite sure how to use the website could do with some help !😁😁
    • Hi there, I've been learning BSL for about two years now and I'm currently half way through my level two course. I am studying occupational therapy at university and I was wondering if anyone on here has experience with occupational therapy as a Deaf service user or know of anyone who has used BSL as a method of communication while using occupational therapy?       
    • Not quite sure what you mean! I pressed the create button to make my original post asking for the BSL signs mentioned in my post. I don't see what you mean by suggesting I press the create button again!  
    • Hi there, I'm new to BSL and I am interested in how to teach English as a second language (ESL) to those who are hard of hearing and to those who are visually impaired. If there are any books that would give a seasoned ESL teacher pointers on how to do this, please can you recommend them. I look forward to receiving your recommendations and feedback.
    •  on the top of the page is a create button press that !
    • I wondered if anybody knows if there is a sign for papercrafting or something similar? I want to be able to tell my friends what my hobbies include without fingerspelling everything, which is arduous for them as much as for me. I make cards and other papercraft things. I also wonder if there is a sign for mermaid? My daughter is obsessed with them. I'm much the same with unicorns so if someone knows a sign for unicorn it would be much appreciated as the one time I tried I ended up trying to show a horn on my head and ended up making a rude sign, which was mortifying to say the least! Many thanks in advance for any help you can give x
