Jessica-louise Parfitt I'm a single mum to two young children so classes aren't an option for me at the moment so I'm doing it online which fits around them perfectly as I chose the time and day but I do miss out on learning from others as I just watch a short video clip and then have a 10 min skype tutorial each week. I'd like to be able to practice with others. I'm coming up for the 3 assessments so defo need the practice!!!!

well done completing your level 1 Lesley Silvester and good luck with your level 2.

I wish to take BSL classes. I live in America and obviously, ASL is the popular option around here 😝 -I am fluent in ASL.

I am glad to have found this forum as we can video chat! I definitely want to check out online classes though I may not be able to commit till this Fall.

I'm currently working towards my Level 2 which I hope to have completed in September. I am more than happy to help anyone who wishes to go over any Level 1 work, or help as well if I can towards Level 2. I am free most nights other than a Thursday, as I have my BSL course that day. If anyone needs help just let me know and I can come onto the chat rooms, and help.

Practise makes perfect.

    • Hi, I'm Catherine, not sure what to do here as each time I clicked something it froze? Anyway, I'm 61 yrs young, I'm from the Wirral, Cheshire, UK. Long story short... At 16yrs of age I decided everyone should know sign language. I knew nothing about it apart from my brother had joined the specials police and was given the alphabet to learn. Of course, he never, but I did. And that was it, the start of my journey. I've signed every since. Taught myself from books, reality hard work! And later became an Interpreter for the deaf. Absolutely  loved my job but due to health problems I had to give up work. Devastated me as I loved it. But I've never stopped signing. Taught many people over the years and still do as and when I'm able. Then... I became deaf, 😮 I wear 2 hearing aids but they've told me what I have will eventually go totally deaf. It goes completely on me but comes back to the level I have, he said one day it will go and it won't come back. It was a struggle initially getting used to the deafness, but I'm not bothered, I was well prepared wasn't I! God has been very good to me. I use BSL and SSE, I'm probably way behind worth the BSL touch, but I'm never too old to listen and improve! I hope!  So I have communication and since I've taught all my friends to sign...it means I've plenty of people I can chat to! 😉 Sorry, that's a long post! 😱

    • hi all. this is my first time on this web site. i have been profoundly deaf for four months. i want to learn BSL so that i can teach my wife, so that i can understand what she is saying to me, so she can tell me what other people are saying to me  
    • Yes 100% what’s your skype name I’ll add you?
    • Hey, I'm 20 from England too currently learning BSL Level 1 and need someone to practice with, if you're still up for it?
    • Hi! I'm Laura-Jane, i'm 19 and am in my second year at University studying British Sign Language and Interpreting. I found this forum whilst looking for extra fingerspelling practice but I'm also looking forward to getting to know other people who also have an interest in BSL!  X
    • Hello everyone, my name is Cynthia  I'm interested in learning sign language because because I think it is a very beautiful language to learn.
    • Hi this year my daughter started to go deaf due to an auto immune condition called Cogans. In the future she may get progressively worse and lose her hearing so I want to learn BSL in case that happens.
