Introducing myself :)

Good evening all, I hope you are all safe and well. I have started the BSL course as it has always been something I wanted to learn due to having family members and friends who are hard of hearing or deaf. Most of them can lip read but I wanted to give people the option of how we chatted.

I work for a large corporation and no one in the company signs and we have many people coming through, some who have wanted to sign but there was no one available and that's when I decided to look into courses and found BSL. This course has been informative and have recommended it to family. 

During lockdown it has been the perfect time to learn and use the old noggin so it doesn't stop working! Would love to chat and maybe video others who want to practice or have a conversation ( I am only on Animals, home, clothing and school but thought would give it a go.

Take care all :)

    • Hope I've done this right lol. I'm Saff and I've just started to learn BSL because I've always been interested but 'never had the time' and since lockdown has been forced upon us I saw it as a blessing in disguise to finally tick it off my list. It's going really well so far and I haven't lost motivation but I am only the fourth lesson in, however I think I'll be alright because this course has been so easy to follow. If anybody has any tips or anything to help remember signs or just some advice
    • Hi, my name is Molly! I started to learn BSL when I was in year 5&6. I never carried this on going into high school, however have decided to pick it back up at the age of 21. I think it's such a great way of communicating and should be taught in schools all around the country. I didn't think I'd be able to remember much but a lot of it has come flooding back. I could really use some help practicing with people, if anyone would like to connect?
    • Hi Bethan and Emily, If possible I would also like to join the group to practice with. At the moment I'm on section 5 families. Gary
    • Hi, my name is Abi. I started learning BSL a few weeks ago - please feel free to offer feedback!   
    • I'm very new to BSL so I hope I have communicated this correctly! My name is Nichole, and my sign name is cookie! (signed: biscuit) If any of this is incorrect please feel free to give corrections! 
    • Hello, I have decided to give it a go as I love languages.  I do not personally know anyone that uses BSL, but having found myself with a lot of extra time during this pandemic, I thought that this could be a good opportunity to expand my horizon and learn something new. Also, I suffer from laryngitis and last year I had really bad episode of Laryngitis and was unable to speak for several weeks; now I wished I had learnt how to sign then as it would have really helped me communicating
    • Hello,  my name is Neda and I'm an events manager from London (but originally from Italy). I have recently started the BSL Introductory course after seeing something about it on LinkedIn. Being on furlough and with lots of time in my hands at the moment, I thought it would be a great opportunity to lear a new language and exercise my brain.  I don't know anyone that uses BSL, so I'd be up for some practise on zoom or so once I finish the course!
