How do you practice?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a complete beginner, just finished assessment 3 so very much a newbie. I am just wondering how everyone practices? I am remembering everything when it comes to the assessments but am worried I’ll forget if I don’t continue using. Being at home with just my young son doesn’t give me anyone to test me..

Morning.

I passed my level 1 about 2 years ago. I have found 2 free apps that I can go back to reference and all my notes, downloaded help sheets and videos I keep on my phone and continue to work and add to. If you would like I can help with some albeit limited practice on here.

What apps have you downloaded? Would you be able to send me a link to the worksheets?

Thank you for replying, I am loving learning again.

I'm the same, just finished assessment 3! I've taken notes on how to do the signs but also just done a list of words or phrases without the description so I can test myself. Starting at the beginning so the oldest stuff I learnt so I can commit it to memory :)

I've just logged onto this public forum now so happy to video chat with you during this lockdown (arrgg) whenever to practice as we are at the same stage :)

I would also love to join in the beginner chat room to converse in sign to help commit it to memory. Any chance we could set up a time to be online? Thanks

    • Hi guys, Im lacey. i decided to learn BSL along side my childminding course. Im thoroughly enjoying it so far and have been using sign through out the day so even my kids have been picking up a few signs here and there 
    • Hello! I'm a newbie, part way through and really enjoying learning. I'm left handed and following the left signs, but as I practice I notice that I flip between using both my left and right as primary hand. Obviously as a newbie my vocab is limited, so my question is does it matter? Do I need to work on this now before it becomes a problem further down the line, or does it not matter? Thanks! 
    • Hello Everyone I am 51and joining BSL as I want to make friends here and within the Deaf Community. I have been drawn to Sign language for many years and feel its important to be able to communicate effectively and fluently. I hope you are all keeping safe and well.
    • Hi there.  I'm Louisa and I'm very new to BSL.  My mum taught makaton when I was younger but I didn't pay too much attention or so I thought: I've clearly picked up some bits that link in with BSL.  I work in finance for a council working with adults with physical and sensory impairments and awareness is one of our key messages to the communities we work with.  So I'm learning to be able to communicate better with the people I work with.  I am loving the course so far (only on intro session 4) a

    • Hi, My name is Paula and I decided to learn BSL during lockdown as I have been teaching and I thought it would be good if my learners could at least know how to say “ hello” or “can I help” In sign language so I thought I could bring bits of signing into my lessons.
    • Hi everyone! My name is Hira and I am 19 years old. I am studying Speech and Language Therapy at University and had my first placement last December. Through volunteering and my placement, I have realised how important it is to know the basics of signing in order to communicate with others. For my career, I want to learn BSL so I can sign certain topics with children who have language difficulties during therapy sessions etc. I also love developing skills and although BSL seems really tricky as
    • I have been interested and fascinated by the Deaf community for a while now. Also, I hate the idea that I wouldn't be able to make friends due to differences in language/ability. I want everyone to feel included and comfortable around me regardless of differences. This is why I am learning BSL.
