Another newbie

Hi everyone,
My name is Nicola and like a few of you I have been thinking that given the current situation, its a great opportunity to learn something new. I am going to sign up for the introductory course in the next day or two, and would like to find one or two people that would be willing to Skype with me so that I can practice.

I did a little bit of signing when I was a child, but did not keep it up; so I can remember bits of the alphabet and odd words, but hopefully looking forward to actually doing some structured learning.

From those of you that are a little further ahead than me, I'd be really interested to hear how much self-study time you tend to put in, so that I can set myself some realistic goals.

Thanks 😃

Hello Nicola, 

My name is Molly I have recently signed up to an online course, I am really enjoying it. I would love to find someone I can practice with. I don't know what a realistic amount of time would be, I have been putting a lot of time in recently due to the current situation I don't have much else on.

I have just signed up to Introduction to BSL via the BSL website, although I know there are several courses available. I would be happy to practice with you. I will understand though, if you want me to catch up with you a little. I have not started yet.

Hello, 

I have signed up to app.BSL courses. The course is split into 8 modules, after each module you have a ten minute a one to one video call with a tutor. So far I have learnt names, general greetings, asking where you're from, weather and numbers to one hundred. It doesn't matter what level you're at I'm sure any practice would be useful for up both.

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.
