Hi, practice buddy?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am currently attending college in England but I'm taking an online course in basic BSL and I'm looking for someone to practice with, I'm a 17 year old girl looking for another girl to practice with just for my comfort because I'm an awkward little bean! 😅 Afternoons and evenings are preferable or weekends to Skype with! 

Thanks

Hi Ala,

I'm Sarah-Jane, I've managed to pass my level 6 and I'm working towards becoming fully qualified at the moment, I am happy to skype with you on an evening and we can practice if you like? I was in your shoes a few years ago and I know doing an online course can be challenging! 

 

Let me know what you think :)

Hey, I'm 16 and in my first year of 6th form so finding a course has been hard and I haven't had much look but I friend of my family is helping me out a little. However, I'd love to have someone to practice with :) (I only know the basics though)

I've also just started 6th form this year and I've been wanting to learn bsl for a while. I don't know much (only the very basics), but I'd love to practise with someone on a similar level to me in the near future :)

Hiya,

I'm struggling to figure out how to reply to specific people and how this thread works.. but I've just joined and would love to have a practise buddy if anyone still needs one!

My knowledge is fairly minimal at the mo, so probably best match with other newbies :)

I am a native deaf BSL user, and I'd love to help people practice using BSL.
I can adapt well to other levels and will be accommodating and understanding. 
If you'd like to start or something, please PM and we'll set something up.

Hello, 

I'm a level 2 learner (I've passed some exams, but not all) who has taken a break and become a bit rusty. Keen to get back to practice but it's an online course so apart from the tutorials there is no human feedback. 

Anyone fancy Skype (preferred) or FaceTime practices?

Hello, everyone! :)

I'm Rada.
I finished the BSL online course quite long ago, but I'm still looking for someone to practice with. I need to expand my vocabulary and learn how to have an actual conversation, so if anyone is interested, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you in advance,

Rada

Hi 

I completed a BSL Level 1 a few years ago and am very rusty but would like to do a Level 2 but thought I could use this as a good way of refreshing my skills (if there are any left!).  Would be happy to practice conversations either FaceTime or Skype??

    • Hello! I'm a newbie, part way through and really enjoying learning. I'm left handed and following the left signs, but as I practice I notice that I flip between using both my left and right as primary hand. Obviously as a newbie my vocab is limited, so my question is does it matter? Do I need to work on this now before it becomes a problem further down the line, or does it not matter? Thanks! 
    • Hello Everyone I am 51and joining BSL as I want to make friends here and within the Deaf Community. I have been drawn to Sign language for many years and feel its important to be able to communicate effectively and fluently. I hope you are all keeping safe and well.
    • Hi there.  I'm Louisa and I'm very new to BSL.  My mum taught makaton when I was younger but I didn't pay too much attention or so I thought: I've clearly picked up some bits that link in with BSL.  I work in finance for a council working with adults with physical and sensory impairments and awareness is one of our key messages to the communities we work with.  So I'm learning to be able to communicate better with the people I work with.  I am loving the course so far (only on intro session 4) a

    • Hi, My name is Paula and I decided to learn BSL during lockdown as I have been teaching and I thought it would be good if my learners could at least know how to say “ hello” or “can I help” In sign language so I thought I could bring bits of signing into my lessons.
    • Hi everyone! My name is Hira and I am 19 years old. I am studying Speech and Language Therapy at University and had my first placement last December. Through volunteering and my placement, I have realised how important it is to know the basics of signing in order to communicate with others. For my career, I want to learn BSL so I can sign certain topics with children who have language difficulties during therapy sessions etc. I also love developing skills and although BSL seems really tricky as
    • I have been interested and fascinated by the Deaf community for a while now. Also, I hate the idea that I wouldn't be able to make friends due to differences in language/ability. I want everyone to feel included and comfortable around me regardless of differences. This is why I am learning BSL. 
    • *sighs nervously and waves hand* hello I am Akira. I have been drawn to the Deaf community for a while and decided to act upon it today and no I do not know any Deaf people. I am interested in making friends here though as I am a beginner. hope to hear from you all soon!! *waves bye, excitedly*
