I have just started lesson 1! I am mixed handed so I write with my left hand, or do makeup.. but I do many other things with my right hand or my right foot! I noticed when practising the alphabet in sign language I'm using my left hand for most of the letters but sometimes I naturally use the right handed way. Is this a big problem at all??

yes it does I am hard of hearing and use BSL  you should sign what you most use like writing or typing open door thing like that but if you naturally use right hand that fine just act like you write with your right hand but the thing you should not do is swap hand or mix  like spelling name  using e left touching right then for r  right touching left I can suggest to pick 1 main hand and stick with it  I hope this understand and helpful

    • Hello everyone, my name is Natalie and I am hoping to become a student midwife next year and have always wanted to learn BSL and thought this would be a great time to learn to help me be able to support all the women and birthing people I have the privilege of caring for.
    • Hello! My name is Shannon and I'm 22. I am starting a job as a support worker and believe that BSL would be a very useful skill. I have completed the introductory course and am looking to practice signs and become more fluent.

    • Hello Everyone!  I have always wanted to learn to sign as I am hard of hearing and have spent many years missing conversations and learning to read lips.  I now work in a shop and we have several BSL users coming in and I so want to be able to sign with them!    Looking forward to learning to sign with people :-)

    • Hi,  my name is Gosia. I work as a teaching assistant in a primary school. I'd like to learn BSL because we use it at school and it'd love to be able to communicate with all the children. 
    • As I work at a company that create material for children, I wish by learning more about BSL I would be able to understand better how to support children with special needs or create resources that support them, especially when I used to work at a childcare centre where most TA would struggle with children with autism; through sign language, it allows them to communicate better and I can be part of the change that make it easier for anyone that would appreciate the assistance.
