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 :)

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.

    • Hi does anyone have the name of a BSL finger spelling font that I could download please?  Many thanks.
    • Hi my name is June.  I am a mum to a 27 year-old profoundly deaf son and I also work with HI children in a school unit as a Speech & Language Therapy Assistant.  I've been heavily involved in the deaf community since my son was diagnosed.
    • So, I moved to Japan last year to work as an English Teacher. One of the schools I visit is a special education school and uses Japanese Sign Language regularly in the classroom. As i began to learn JSL alongside spoken Japanese I decided it was time to properly start to learn some BSL too. Picking up BSL is generally easier for me too, as I already know English!
    • I'm Angel (25) from Kent. Currently living in the Japanese countryside hoping to learn BSL along with JSL (Japanese Sign Language). The dream is master both and be a translator/interpreter. Wish me luck!
    • My name is Marie (38 years old) and I come from Cardiff.  I have two children.  I've always wanted to master brand language and now it's finally coming true.  I work as a waitress in a cafe and it has happened to me several times that a customer communicated in sign language and I did not understand him.  I am very happy that I can learn this language.
    • hi, I am learning BSL as I love languages and also I occasionally work with deaf people and would like to be able to communicate with them.
    • The New Year will be here before we know it!   Let's make 2023 all about learning British Sign Language!   Our BSL Level 1 Course starts in January with John Archbold, and it is the perfect time to join if you have always wanted to learn BSL!   Contact us to book your place or for any enquiries.   www.remark.uk.com/bsl-level-1/
    • Hi everyone! I think it would useful in my workplace. I work in a hospital, and I've heard about how there can be trouble communicating with patients who are Deaf, so I thought it would be a good thing to learn, in case the need ever arose!
