Hello from Orkney


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Last year I enjoyed the online course for BSL and since have continued to be fascinated by this beautiful language.  At the moment I'm watching Youtube videos of pop songs being signed, to increase my vocabulary - it's a lot of fun!  I'm trying to learn "Can't Stop The Feeling" but it is very fast and I'm literally getting my fingers in a twist! ;)

I have disabilities myself, though none to do with hearing loss, and therefore understand somewhat of what it is to be one of the worlds minorities. (Though it is hard to compare this to the uniqueness of Deaf culture.)

As well as enjoying signing, I want to learn about customs, correct phrases etc, so please correct me if I write anything wrong.

Thanks, Ellen *waves*

hello

I'm doing the level 1 award in BSL studies online and I've got my mock Receptive skills assessment tomorrow. my question is what to expect? I've read through the paperwork and understand how the descriptive narrative assessment and conversational assessment will work (I think), but still unsure what to expect from the Receptive skills assessment as in how it works?

well done completing your level 1 last year.

Hi Danielle, I'm not sure we're talking about the same course. Yours sounds a lot more in depth - and certainly impressive. My course was wholly online, where you watch a film of a sign and then fill out the form with your answer. I should also add I have no qualifications, my health makes it hard for me to do tests/exams, so I learnt the content without ever applying for a certificate (which I hope to do later). I am very much a beginner - sorry I can't be more help! 

Wishing you the very best of luck, let me know how it goes! :)

    • I'm Jo I learnt some basic sign in primary school and I am now learning to expand my skills, so I can hopefully communicate better with the deaf community. 
    • 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.
