Hi!
 
I am a high school student that is planning a project to create a booklet of basic signs in a variety of different sign languages around the world for emergencies used by healthcare professionals. I was wondering if anyone could help me with some BSL grammar. I just have 5 questions that needs to be translated, but still haven't quite grasped the concept of sentence structuring in BSL. 
 
1. "Where does it hurt?" into HURT WHERE?
2. "What is your name?" into NAME YOU WHAT?
3. "Do you know sign language?" or "Do you sign?" into SIGN YOU?
4. "Do you consent?" into CONSENT YOU?
5. "Do you have any family we can call?" into FAMILY HAVE CALL?
 
Are any of these correct? I'd appreciate any form of help I can get! Thank you in advance for helping me in the process of creating this booklet for local hospitals to communicate with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community.
 
(Also, if anyone knows other sign languages: Chinese, French, Russian, or Spanish, and can help with some grammar or words, please contact me: [email protected]!

    • Looks like we are all struggling to find practice I have yet to see anyone in the beginners room when I'm online. I am also new and think practise with someone is the best way to get use to signing, assuming that we do the signs right Again due to work etc I will only be free on video chat Tuesday's around 6.30pm maybe for half hour. Fingers crossed 👍 Paul.
    • Hey, I’m Ryan and I’m brand new to BSL. My schedule means I’m unable to enrol on a course, so I will be making use of any online resources. I was also hoping to maybe find someone who would like to practice. Any level is cool with me.
    • Hi, I would like to register a group of people (my family) to learn BSL. I was wondering if I do a group enrollment can they log into the course separately? Or do we all have to log on via 1 log in and we learn at the same time? 
    • Hey. That would be great! I'm finishing my course next week, so would like to keep practicing.
    • Good Morning, I hope this is the correct forum to introduce myself and what I am looking for? If not please do let me know the best way to go about this. I work for Three mobile and run their Three Live video streaming service and would like to include broadcasts with a BSL user sitting alongside our presenters to increase accessibility and awareness for our viewers. I am looking for volunteers in or around the Glasgow area to come in and sign for me on special broadcasts alongside my presenters. I will be able to cover travel expenses for you if anyone on the forum would be interested. you can access my teams broadcasts here www.three.co.uk/three-live and we tend to broadcast on the hour for about 20 mins just click on the widget at the bottom right  of the screen to see what we do. If you are interested please reply. And I apologise to admin if this is not the correct use of this forum pages but would appreciate guidance on where I can request this if possible.
    • I was hoping to start in Newcastle College, found out today the course is on hold... I'm just looking around YouTube atm.
    • Hi Emma, where are you studying in Sunderland?  Are you doing introduction now?
    • Hi Sue, I'm in Sunderland, I'm learning sign language because I want to become an interpreter, I'm going to start level 1 in September.
