Practise with other beginner BSL users!


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone 

Myself and a few other individuals have started a group chat session every Saturday 2pm (GMT). We have already had 1 session and found it very useful. For those wanting to join in on our practise sessions please dm me or comment down below. We are currently using zoom, and I will send you a link to the scheduled meeting. 

If you are just a beginner don't be alarmed or think you are unable to join. I am doing this so that we can actually communicate with each other and benefit with other peoples experience and practise with BSL. On the day I will send/post the link to the meeting for everyone to join.

Come Join In!

@VanessaH @Shellie @Faith Odi @Jeetus Maximus Sohpal @Mariam Hey Everyone! Thank you all for your patience. 

This weeks meeting has been rescheduled to Sunday 2pm. As things begin to normalise work starting up again, I will need to set future meetings in accordance to such changes. But please do contact any other people within this thread for one to one sessions on days outside the BSL meetings. See you Sunday!

@douglasmathers @Nicole H @VanessaH @Jeetus Maximus Sohpal @Mariam @Shellie @Faith Odi Hi guys. Yes the meeting is still occurring. I will be absent this week. However there are others who will be joining today. We are covering fingerspelling today to speed up and finger signs much more quickly. We have already covered questions with a small group- which continues to grow.  For all those in this thread take a look and use this code today. Next week on wards I will change the meeting codes to renew them.

    • Iris, you have posted some interesting questions, and a couple of them could be expanded considerably. I would like to respond at length but not just now. I'll try and do so in a week or so. Are we permitted to communicate outside the forum? [email protected]  
    • Hello everyone, this is my first post on the forum and thought I'd share my own reasoning for beginning to learn BSL. My interest in learning sign language was initially peaked by seeing others using it as a form of communication whilst out in public, and figuring that although I do not have any friends or family who are hard of hearing or deaf, it would be a valuable life skill to acquire. I first picked up BSL last summer but didn't persist with it for long and have only recently recommitted to learning BSL within the last few days.  I am a 20 year old student and recently started working at a Starbucks in the same city that I attend university. Yesterday was the first time I encountered a deaf customer whilst working. I was not the staff member who served her, however when I handed her her drink she tried to communicate to me that she wanted sugar for it (purely non-verbal, motioning as though tipping sugar into the mug). I was initially caught off-guard as my current knowledge of BSL is extremely basic to the point where I would not be confident to hold a conversation, and I (stupidly) replied to her verbally before realising that we were both wearing masks so she had no hope of lip reading my attempt of asking if she wanted brown or white sugar. Realising this, I instead just asked her how many she wanted by holding up fingers sequentially, then grabbed the one sugar she wanted, handed it to her, and nervously contemplated signing "thank you" (one of the few signs I do have down to memory), though by the time I had even thought about it she had taken her drink and walked away. The entire situation has breathed into me a new sense of enthusiasm for learning BSL, knowing that with my new job there may be opportunities to apply my learning in a practical setting, as well as potentially make new friends and having a valuable pastime to commit myself to.  Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this and feel free to leave general advice in regards to learning, I am currently following the British-Sign BSL course. 
    • I love to meet people and make friends, but when it comes to the deaf community I feel like there's a wall between me and thousands of people. I could miss out on future friends or partners or anyone who might enrich my life just because of my own ignorance. It's nice to think that learning BSL will help others and I hope it does, but I doubt anyone will benefit more from me learning sign language than I will.  I'm moving to the UK soon. If I were to move to Germany or France I would make a concerted effort to learn the language. Since I already speak English as my first language, I'm lucky that I can put that effort into learning BSL instead. I hope that it will benefit me and also allow me to be a better member of the society I wish to join and integrate with.
    • Hi, there is actually a sign for dyslexia!  Both left and right hands making a 'C' shape with thumb and index finger in front of your chest area (a bit like how you would sign 'word') and overlapping them x2 to show that the words are mixed together.  Hope this helps :)
