Another newbie

Recommended Posts

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.

    • 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.
