New to BSL

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have just completed the online level one course of BSL. Before this I knew a few signs but not many. I am hoping to try find people to practice with, as it still confuses me how to put sentences together properly, but I am guessing that comes with practice. Please say hi, if this is new to you too and you would like someone to practice with. 

I am a support worker currently, I thought it would be good to learn in this line of work, but also because It is a language I have always wanted to learn.

Hi!

I am in a similar position to you. I have been a support worker in the past and currently working on becoming an SEND teacher (graduating in July fingers crossed with all this craziness going on). I also have picked up basic signs from my work beforehand, but enjoying learning it in a slightly more formal way.

Hi, 

Oh that is great, fingers crossed for you too, I am hopefully graduating my health science access course in June/ July also, and then hopefully on to study Physiotherapy in September. 

Yeah I have really enjoyed the course, I just need to keep practicing now, I am trying to go round signing as I talk around the house to my partner ha ha.

    • Hello everyone.  I am Kate.  I have just started to learn BSL with the online course. I have had varying levels of hearing impairment for many years. I have always wanted to learn sign but have not had the time before.  I am now retired and with the current restrictions, it is the perfect time to learn.  Found the alphabet and colours etc fairly easy but now its getting tough (what, where, when why etc.).

    • I am Bethan and I have only recently started learning BSL. I actually learnt the BSL alphabet from a poster in the toilet of a cocktail bar and have been inspired to learn ever since! I am a Civil Servant (Energy and Climate policy) and trained facilitator and I am excited to be able to draw this new skill into my work environment. Probably a little early but I am definitely keen in a few weeks to practice my signing with someone else.  Let me know if you are keen.  If anyone knows the sign
    • Hello. My name is Wiktoria, I come from Poland. Polish my native language. I currently go to university and study Sport and Exercise Science.   I always wanted to learn sign but didn’t know where to start. I have been learning for about 3 weeks now, and I am really enjoying it 😁 I actually found out about online British sign language courses through a girl (I cannot remember her name) on TikTok mentioning them.    I have found that I am struggling signing without saying the word
    • thank you so much! this has been really helpful. does SSE used the same signs as BSL?  I will do  thanks again 
    • Hi Ijacoby. This is Delia.  good question. a lot of people get confused with this. BSL is different from SSE (signed suported English.) BSL has its own grammer and not everyword is said for example saying whats your name? in BSL  is,  name you what?is signed name what?  Its difficult to explain as BSL is such a visual language.  Its a good question to ask your tutor. Good luck and enjoy your course.
    • My name is Kaz Davies. I co-own and run a recording studio in Bristol, where I live. I have 3 children (eldest has moved out), a cat and a dog. I am also a volunteer at The Hive in Bristol. I am bilingual and I have always found languages very interesting. I started teaching myself BSL with videos online around April 2020. Though I have picked up bits of ASL & BSL when I was younger from friends, film and tv. I finally registered for a BSL course this month and I am enjoying i
    • Hi guys, I have recently started learning BSL - extremely beginner!! I am wondering when signing and talking at the same time do I say what I sign or say the sentence. For instance, when singing “name your what” do I say ‘name your what’ or ‘what’s your name’  Hopefully this makes sense!!
