Practising by introducing my self

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, hope you are all staying safe.

I wanted to have a go at practising my BSL by introducing my self a little bit.
Please feel free to give any tips if there is anything I don't do correctly.

Thank you,
Alice x

P.s. I had a little list in front of me as a reference for what I wanted to say, so excuse me if I keep looking over. Also I realise my face looks really red, but it's just the lighting and my acne :)

Hi Laura,

Thank you for the reply.
Was interesting to work out the signs and sentences as I'v been focusing on just trying to remember them haha.

I have tried to reply best I can.

Alice :)

Love these! You're all definitely ahead of me although I figured out you were saying your favourite things. I just finished doing the Section 4 about animals, home, clothes, work and education. So although I have lots of vocab...I can't necessarily put lots of sentences together usefully. Will try and post one though when I feel confident to do so - speaking of, having just learnt the sign for 'self-confident' - it's one of my favourites!

Hey Alice,
Glad you understood me :) and thank-you for the reply- could understand it really clearly.

here's another if you want :) 

And Ellie can't wait to see your introduction video- let us know your favorite animal within it :)

Stay safe,

Laura

Hi Alice,

Great video! Hope you're well. I could understand your signs, just a few discrepancies here and there but will come with time and confidence.

A few tips from me:

- You don't need to use 'what' before everything - it is known as a rhetorical question so is better to use it here and there. For example, 'name, me, ellie' and nod your head.

- Also, when you sign age, the numbers should come from your nose and this therefore tells viewers that you are talking about your age.

Hope this helps, thank you 😃

Hi everyone.

So lovely to see the replies from you all so far :)

Laura, again thank you for another reply. I'm glad my signs are clear to you, and your signs are also clear so well done :D
I didn't quite understand the last few signs as I didn't recognise them or haven't learnt them yet , and if I'm correct you may have asked me a question, but again wasn't sure. Really sorry!

Ellie, glad to to hear your enjoying it. The signs are interesting as you go further along so I'm sure you'll love them.
'Self confidence' is also one of my favourite signs to do. 
I look forward to seeing any video's you may like to record :)

Phoebe, again I'm glad the signs are clear to you also.
Thank you for the tips, they are very helpful :) I will keep these in mind when I'm 
practising!

Stay safe,
Alice.

    • I strongly believe that sign language is a very important skill to have - being able to sign allows widening of my communication and also means I do not have to rely on others. I have worked in IT for 15+ years and would like to find better and more effective ways of connecting both sign language and IT.
    • Hi. Im currently learning the beginners course to BSL. Ive been self teaching myself through YouTube but thought id try a more structured course.
    • Good evening,   I achieved my beginners certification last week Friday. A few weeks ago I decided that signing is/should be an essential skill that I need and as a result I signed up to the course on the website and just went for it. I have worked in IT for the best part of 15 years (user support and projects) and part of my motivation for learning sign language is to find a way or ways to connect sign language with IT. Some personal info - i’m 40 years old, with an amazing 6

    • Hi, my name is Caroline and I have just started to learn BSL.
    • Hi my name is Sandra, I am a grandmother of 13, we are a very close family but sometimes it does get a bit annoying when I am trying to complete an assessment. They send me photos and messages constantly, if I don’t reply they think there is something wrong, this means I am stopping and starting! I type slowly anyway (my ipad is old, keys stick, school issue) so my times for completing assessments are not quick. I hope I don”t get penalised at the end of the course! I am hoping I will gain enoug
