Hi Steven! Whenever I see ASL I think it looks so much harder than BSL! Have you learned any BSL other than starting this course and where are you up to on it? Are you British? (so many questions haha!)

Interesting perspective!

I learned BSL from Youtube.com. Commanding Hands. John Smith - deaf British comedian.

I am doing Introduction section 4 on animals and at home.

No I am not British, I am an American, Texan, to be specific.

Aahh I see! I've just checked him out on YouTube, theres a lot of videos. I've scrolled through a lot of BSL and never clicked on him! 

I've just passed assessment 7 on the course. 

Is there any sections so far that you would like to practice? My friend and I send each other little videos of what we did that day to try and use some of the vocab we've learned

We just send them via what's app or via email. (she's my friends mum so it's the easiest way for us, she's had troubles logging onto this forum but hopefully she'll get it sorted) 


Did you want me to send you some videos asking questions?

    • Hi there! I am a primary school teacher and have worked with children who are hard of hearing and children who are non-verbal. I found that learning basic signs helped me better connect with these students and that is why I wanted to study sign language. I am really enjoying the online course. I am looking forward to teaching my year 4 students to recognise and communicate using BSL.

    • Hello Adam. I have just seen this post, I see you posted it 4 years ago so this may be difficult to answer. But what was your conclusion? Did you complete BSL Level 1 after completing the Introducing British Sign Language by british-sign.co.uk? Or did you move straight to Level 2?
    • Hi, I'm Bethan. I'm learning BSL because I'm a trainee primary school teacher and think it's so important for a classroom to be accessible to all. I also would love to teach pupils in my class BSL. I've been meaning to learn BSL for such a long time and lockdown has given me the chance to spend the time on it. I'm really loving the challenge. It's nice to learn something new and be excited about it 
    • It's been something I've wanted to learn for a while now, but previously to my work being temporarily shut due to the country being put in lockdown, I didn't feel I had the time to dedicate to fully completing a course. As that was no longer the case after everything happened, the opportunity presented itself to me perfectly so I knew I had to do it.
