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.

    • My grandaughter had delayed speech as a toddler and is currently under investigation for Autism/ADHD and has a severe stutter so I am hoping that if I can sign (and teach her to sign as well) it will help her to communicate better and aid her speech as well as give us both an extra skill.

    • Hi all, my Mum and I are learning BSL together and using this course. My younger brother had delayed speech when he was really young and Makaton was amazing for communication.  It's always been something we wanted to learn but we've now committed. Every week we aim to video call each other and learn together giving ourselves homework and challenges, it's great and we're already starting to recognise some signs in other conversations. We've just finished learning the signs for diff

    • I'm a Qualified Dental Nurse and Lead Receptionist at my dental practice.  I've decided to do a BSL course as we do not have anyone here on hand to support Deaf or Hard of Hearing people in our practice and I want to change that.  I feel its important to offer absolutely everyone the best possible level of care and so here I am.  I don't really understand why sign language isn't taught in our schools and feel that we all need to be more inclusive of all people in life.  Were
