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.

    • hi! i'm maya, i'm really new to learning bsl. i like anime and vocaloid music! i'm learning sign language because i'm mute and autistic, and i prefer it over clunky text to speech software or using a notepad. i hope i'm doing this right haha, it's nice to meet you all :)
    • Hi I'm Michelle,  I have always wanted to learn to sign for a while, having this opportunity means a lot.  Working with children on occasion with communication difficulties and this has opened up a communication barrier. Thank you     
    • Heya, My names Alllanah and i have recently decided to take up learning BSL due to needing not only a different career path but life path. I went to college for 3 years studying Art and Design but realized this isn't where i wanted to be in the real world as its very difficult to get into, extremely competitive.  I work in retail and would really like to change my life around and have a purpose to get out of bed in the morning. To help someone during this short stay, we call life.
    • Hi my name is Paige, I've recently started learning sign language something i have always wanted to do but never had enough courage to officially start. I'm currently a university student and would eventually like to get a job involving me being able to use sign language. 
    • I'm autistic and situationally nonverbal, so thought BSL would be really helpful for when I lose my words. I also have C-PTSD and it'll help notify people when I'm stuck in a flashback and can't talk. I also want to be able to communicate properly with D/deaf people when we meet. I'm really enjoying learning so far, it feels really natural and easy to my brain.
    • Hi all! I'm Charlie-Thistle, but Thistle or Charlie is fine. I'm autistic and situationally verbal, so thought BSL would be a useful tool to have when I lose my words. As soon as I started learning it just felt really natural and much more comfortable than speech, so I may end up using sign a lot more than I'd initially thought. I'm really enjoying learning and can't wait for it to be safe enough to meet real people in person to practice with. Hope you're all having a nice day! 😊 They/
    • Hi my name is Chelsey I've recently started learning sign language as I have always been interested in it but never had the courage/ confidence to learn it. I'm currently a stay at home mum to 2 girls who are 3 and 6 months, when my youngest starts school I would like to get a job involving me being able to use sign language. 
    • My name is Jude and I am learning BSL in order to make the shop I work in a more inclusive experience for all and this includes people who use BSL to communicate, everyone should be able to have themselves understood (especially during such trying times) and it is clearly a frustration for some and I would prefer to try and show that I am there to enhance their retail experience and make their shopping trips run a little bit more smoothly. I am also in my final year of University and I am excite
