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 

   -Ala 😊

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 :)

 

Sarah-Jane

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??

 

Lesley

    • Hi,  I'm learning BSL as I have been loosing my hearing for the past 2 years and am feeling a bit left out of the speaking community I grew up in. I learned to lip read sub consciously and out of necessity, but I still feel left out in crowds and while trying to talk to people while outside with lots of noise.   I just want to feel included but I'm scared as none of my friends sign or feel the need to learn! Sorry, didn't want to be a downer! Am having lots of fun learning though! 
    • I have always been interested in Sign Language and I got more intrigued since I started working for the Interpretation&Translation Service NHS here in Edinburgh. We provide BSL Interpreters which are outsourced with an agency. And it would be great to get become involved more with Deaf people, the community workwise. I am attending an Introduction Course and continue with Level 1 in August. Level 2 and 3 at some point would be great if I can afford that. I found out that we have to pay the highest fees here for those courses in Scotland/if not the UK.
    • Dear Wendy, I am attending a BSL INtroduction Course in Edinburgh and we have a girl who is 27 years old. She was diagnosed with a brain turmor at the age of 10 or so I think. She suffers from short term memory since then and she still catches up with basic signs and small talk. It helps her a lot to be filmed while she signs sentences or words and puts them together. Might be an idea for yourself, too.
    • I am a beginner and find this quite useful I am fine fingerspelling myself but receptive skills are not really good. I am ok with the first few letters but if there are more than 6 letters I am lost, lol. Also I am German and not native to English language. I am fluent in English, though it is easier for me to read the word "George" for example and I know how to prounounce the name. But if words/names are fingerspelled to me, I find it (still) difficult to recognise them. I guess that I will improve by time.
    • Hej guys, I am Annika from Edinburgh, 36 years old and have been learning with books and YT, BSL Watchzone since few months. Doing Introduction since beginning of Feb and going to continue with Level 1 in August. I am studying with a Deaf Tutor at Deaf Action.

      Would be awesome to find other people from Edinburgh to meet up with and to get help here, keen on doing L2 and eventually L3 in near future if I can afford that.

      Other than that I like my two cats, I work for an Interpretation Service at NHS, I enjoy walking though nature, Outlander and Star Trek conventions, upcycling and cooking/eating non cruelty food.
    • Hi Alexis, I live in Edinburgh and a beginner, too. Happy to Skype or meet up if you are in Edinburgh some time.
    • Hi Alexia, I am attending an Introduction Course here in Edinburgh and will continue in August with Level 1
      If you want we can have some Skype conversation at the weekend. Cheers, Annika
