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??

    • Hi.  I am very new to BSL and have wanted to learn my whole adult life. I’m 28 and live in Devizes, Wiltshire. I currently have an online course on the go and several apps. Iv even followed many YouTube videos. If I was to do a better course it seems to cost a lot and i have no idea who to use so any opinions welcome. But if anyone is interested in Skyping or FaceTiming as regularly as possible or lives close enough to hang out and help me further my BSL that would be amazing!  Thank you     Henry

    • Hey Marla, My favourite sign is TRUST/SURE/TRUE: https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/true-1.html If your are starting to learn and are intrigued by the BSL world, then I thoroughly recommend using these sites for finding signs: Primary - https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/ Secondary - https://www.signbsl.com/ And also watching shows on BSL Zone! It's an incredible site where you can watch a whole host of shows that are all in BSL. - https://www.bslzone.co.uk/watch/ Lucy
    • That's awesome, thank you! So then, if you signed MUST while shaking your head and using negative expression, would that mean "not allowed to" or "don't have to"? Thanks! Lucy
    • Thank you Vikki, that is very helpful! Lucy
