Hi Graeme and Leighton, 

Thanks for posting. I'd love to chat in the 'video chat' section of this website to try and maintain a conversation as Graeme suggested. I'm still very new to it all but have now enrolled on BSL level 1.

I'm free Friday 8th between 3 - 6pm, Saturday 9th at 10am or Monday 11th at 10am?

Hi all,

I'm towards the end of a level 1 course and I'd like to actually get chatting with people. Mind if I join if it's not too crowded? I could do any of those times you suggested Mark.

    • 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.
