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 believe the sentence structure would be "like you rugby" with a questioning expression.   "Like" is tap twice on the chest with flat primary hand, "you" is point to the person, then "rugby" is mime throwing a rugby ball. All this is covered in lesson 3 or 4 I think. The hobbies/likes/dislikes lesson.   HTH
    • I would love to be helpful and I work in a shop where I have had interactions with quite a few deaf customers who obviously use sign language with their family but i'd love to be able to sign to them so that their shopping experience was more inclusive. 
    • Hello!  My name is Emma, I have always wanted to learn BSL since I read a book 'A Quiet Kind of Thunder' when I was younger that featured deaf and BSL speakers. I had set it as my new year resolution many years on the trot without commitment or means to complete the resolution. I'm 19, I do English Lit and Lang at Uni and because I do a joint degree I can't take the elective in BSL that is offered at my uni. Then lockdown began and I have started an online course and I'm very much enjoying
