Just a quick hello.  I'm Jackie and am currently studying BSL Level 1 which if I'm honest I'm struggling a bit with receptive skills.  Hoping this might help me :)  Thanks for reading and have a nice day :)

Hi Jackie..  DOnt give up.... jusr keep practicing  you will get there.. 

Ive been running  a voluntary group for 20 years  now Constituted  for  15 years. ... www.practicemakesperfect.org.uk  if you go to it  and then join   my facebook  page via  the Facebook logo.. I will send you video clips  that you need.. there are  lots of FREE  apps for mobile phones  etc  ,  websites  for   BSL dictionaries,  etc  I have  my own dvd is  you wish to buy it  ...details on  the website under  products.. The secret of  becoming  a good sign  is  keep practicing  every possible  minute..   especially  your  vowels and alphabet  as that  is  the foundation  for y ou to be able to communicate..  then learning signs   as often as possible. If you have a local Deaf  centre   please try to attend   and  maybe    there will be someone  to support  you..  Best  wishes.. maureen

    • Hi, I'm learning BSL through online courses & youtube (not formally). I started to lose my hearing in my mid-20s, but had a significant dip 18 months ago at 36 with severe bilateral loss. My family & friends are all hearing and I work in a hearing job, so I'm struggling to practice enough BSL to communicate effectively - right now, it's more SSE. With another dip in my hearing recently, I'm determined to crack this and would love to find some people to sign with.

    • As far as i have learned (which is very little so far) you just need the basic gestures. so work can be found here http://www.signbsl.com/sign/work  ambulance here http://www.signbsl.com/sign/ambulance and service here http://www.signbsl.com/sign/service you would have to start with "I" which is as simple as pointing to yourself. Hope this helps  pd
