Introduction.


Recommended Posts

Hello. My name's Myron and I'm very new to BSL.  So far managed to pass 1st and 2nd assessments on the BSL course.

Taking this slowly.  Any tips and tricks on how to take in everything involved with sign language welcome.  I struggle focusing on the whole so when other body language is used and can tend to miss it.  I've got a diagnosed processing disorder.

Apart from that,  slowly plodding on and hopefully will pass the introduction course.  This will be useful as a volunteer as an exercise instructor for older adults and together with my partner, assist with people that have disabilities.  for this and others reasons it's quite important for me to at least nail finger spelling and numbers as well as colours, which I have got, but I want to pass the whole thing.

    • Good morning, I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and their maternal family uses BSL. So far I’ve picked up the the basics, stuck to them and relied on them lip-reading but I’m trying to be more proactive and learn BSL kind of “meet them halfway.” I’d like to be able to engage in deeper conversations with them but am just learning to sign now. Any advice please?
    • Hi, my name’s Taz. I’m 25 and live in London. I’m just learning how to introduce myself in BSL now and love learning about the community also. How about you guys?
    • Hello! My name is Kathryn and I have far too many hobbies to list. I work in tourism and as a carer (and also sometimes at my local bookshop). I've had an interest in learning BSL for a long time but decided to commit to it as part of my Queen's Guide Award which is the highest award you can achieve in GirlGuiding, essentially the same as the King's Scout Award if you're involved in Scouting.
