Heyy,

So I'm practicing my Level 1 words and phrases and finding it hard not to just sign lots of mini sentences e.g. My name is Ellie. I am 24 years old. I have 2 brothers. My brother is called.." etc. Are there signs for words such as "and", "but", "because", "so" etc. so I can sign longer continuous sentences...? Without a word such as "and" I don't understand how you say more than just lots of short phrases and sentences. I was practicing earlier siging "My favourite colour is Blue" and then i wanted to go on and say more about myself or say "My favourite colours are Blue and green"...?

Can anyone help?

TIA!

xx

Hi Ellie,

BSL grammar is a little different, conjuctions are used, but you find BSL the sentence structure is different. I struggle to explain it. For example, you say name me ….brothers, me have 3...please anyone correct me if I am wrong. 

Use https://www.signbsl.com

They have a library of words

I mixed up the above sign for sign/words...I used finger spelling instead. I wanted to say BSL grammar is different compared to English.

I did a placement last year in a school for children with Special Educational Needs and absolutely loved it, so I'm trying to learn a little bit of BSL so I'm able to communicate with deaf/Deaf children or any person that uses sign language to communicate, as I'd like to retrain as a Special Needs teacher later on. I'm still a total beginner but I'm hoping to pick it up:)
