Another Language ♥

Recommended Posts

My name is Miriam - no surprises there & I learnt basic BSL many years ago, but never had anyone to converse with since.

I am EXTREMELY rusty with it now.  But every now & again, I surprise myself when little bits poke out through the cobwebs of my brain, when I am in social situations.,

For the last 4½ years I have volunteered at a local open-air museum & find that I am coming into contact with sign-world more & more. So, as I was raised with 'ignorance is no excuse' ♥, I decided to give my butt a severe kick & 're-learn' myself.

I originally learned basic BSL because I had already learned basic Spanish & basic German, so why not a third language :)

So here I am &, if it's okay with you, I would like to just meander around the forum for a few days, just to find my way around & familiarise myself with sign again?

 

ps - I can't find a sign which portrays the word 'basic' - as in 'basic sign language'

I also can't get the finger-spell challenge to work - it accepts my name entry, but won't allow 'GO' to be selected.

    • That’d be cool. I know very little but still cool
    • Hi Sharna, I have just joined so am also new at this - I have been trying to learn sign language and i am currently doing my level 1 so just at the beginning as well.  I have been going to a class but it would be good to be able to practice during the week. 
    • Hi. I’m sharna.  I wear hearing aids as I am hard of hearing and because of that I’ve always wanted to learn bsl but the courses are very expensive and I tried with just an online course but then I couldn’t practice with people which is what I want (otherwise it’ll be like in one ear and out the other but about eyes instead of ears. Also - I made an ear joke haha - not wanting to offend anyone by that though   If you can’t laugh...) I really want it as a second language to the point of I can do it without much thought like I do with English.  And hopefully I’ll make friends. Nice to meet you all
    • hi I'm chloe I'm 26 and currently learning bsl level 1, I have a son who was born deaf hes almost three now and he amazes me every day with his ability to learn and communicate he has been my inspiration to want to learn sign. I've been doing level one since January and love every moment of it even though I find it particularly tricky at times and would love to be able to practice or help with others where I can. thanks for taking the time to read this and happy signing xx :-) :-)

    • Hello everyone i'm pretty new to bsl but would love to learn it. It would help in my job in case i get any deaf customers , it would also be good if i made any deaf friends. If anybody is up for helping me , i'm not straight forward with video call but i'd like to talk about stuff more before i do as i have anxiety and it's a little difficult to video call with a stranger haha. Thanks for taking your time to read this!
    • Hi Trespasser, I work on Wensleydale Railway in North Yorkshire.   
    • Hi Ken, what heritage railway would that be then? .. Also glad to see your looking to expand your driving tuition to cater for the deaf community, I guess that will bring in a bit more custom for you and also make a few new friends along the way ..
