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.

    • Hi Carole   I'm really sorry, but I'm not sure myself, I was hoping you would have been able to tell me 🤣.  Not a good start for the pair of us.  I'll try and have a look to see if I can find any information about it.  Donna
    • Hi Donna   Thank you so much for responding to my post. I would be delighted to practice with you. Can you let me know how to go about this please. Look forward to hearing from you. Carolex
    • Hiya, I've also included this in my intro post but I'm an early years practitioner who has experience working with deaf children and looking to expand my knowledge.
    • Hiya I'm Lana and I've worked 1:1 with a school aged deaf child during my career as an early years practitioner. I'm now working with a baby who is deaf and looking to expand my knowledge even further so they get the best start in life possible. 
    • Hello Carole    I would love to be a sign buddy with you.   I have completed a 10 week beginners course and need to practice.  I am available from 4pm on most days.  Thank you.  Donna  
    • Hi everyone   I have just started to learn BSL and just over half way through the course. I am really enjoying it and would love to practice with a buddy. I can be quite flexible in days of the week and time. So, if anyone here is ambitious enough or looking for a buddy, I hope you will consider me. Thanks, Carole.
    • Hi, I am new to BSL and so pleased I made this decision to to learn this language. I work for myself using different kind of signs and imagery, and, whereby I do public and group speaking.  I hope, if I am good enough, to use it within my workplace where people many enjoy my service and benefit from it. I am just over half way through the course. I look forward to learning from other people's knowledge and experiences. best wishes, Carole.
