Is there some kind of extra software that i need to download to use the video chats on this site? I think using them would help me learn better, but when i join one it just comes up with a grey screen with a picture in the middle of a camera with a line through it. It might be something to do with software, or just that my webcam isn't enabled somehow (let this site access my microphone and camera when the pop-up came up though). I'm on my Lenovo laptop with Windows 10 if that helps. Thanks in advance!

Hi Daisy, maybe try a different internet browser too!
Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox etc all have diff securities and settings which might be blocking the camera.

If that doesnt work have you installed any required drivers for your webcam?

Whatever the make of camera, go to the manufacturers website, check the support pages and there should be a drivers and downloads area where you can search for the particular model.

Hi! I'm so sorry I didn't see this, I haven't been on here for a while. I'm not sure whether Zoom works for me either, but if I can work it out and you still want to practice we can one day if you want?

    • Hello I am very new to signing but I am also keen to practice... 
    • 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. 
    • *sighs nervously and waves hand* hello I am Akira. I have been drawn to the Deaf community for a while and decided to act upon it today and no I do not know any Deaf people. I am interested in making friends here though as I am a beginner. hope to hear from you all soon!! *waves bye, excitedly*
    • Hi Myself and my daughter, Kiera (12) decided to begin to learn British Sign Language. It is helpful that we are both learning together as we can continually practice, which we find to be very beneficial to remembering the signs. We would find it very rewarding to be able to speak to other people using sign language in the future. Hayley and Kiera 🙂
    • Hi all: My name is Imogen.  I am a linguist by education and profession.  I learnt Spanish in South America but went through the British Education System with French.  I have spent most of my career as an MFL teacher specialising in all things Latin America and I speak French and Spanish fluently.  Spanish is my strongest foreign language.  I am now mostly a teacher of English for Academic Purposes and ESP English for Specific Purposes to post graduates wanting to study in this country.  I
    • Hi all, I am brushing up on my BSL. I completed the level 1 BSL while at university many many years ago but I failed the exam! Since having children I did tiny talk (baby sign) which made a lot of it come back (although there are some different signs) I remember how much I enjoyed it and have decided to try and again!
