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!

Hello Usayd - this sounds great.  I'd be up for joining in too if there's room for one more.

Great, thanks.  Unfortunately I won't be able to make today's session though, so see you all next week hopefully.

Hello

Would love to join in this chat if that's okay. I've been learning BSL for about 3 months and would love some practice.

@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.

    • Hi everyone! I'm a postgraduate student and I'm learning BSL because I want to be more inclusive in communicating and meeting new people. I grew up signing Makaton with my family, but it's been a long time and I've forgotten most of it... the sign for 'biscuit' has always stuck with me, and while I think that might be one of the most important signs, I'm looking forward to learning much more!
    • Hi, i recently completed a course in makaton which i use the sign when asking him to do something or going places, like car, or bed, please and thankyou, he can do a couple when he wants too 😁  we also watch a lot of mr tumble and we have a singing with sign dvd from a charity called singing hands which is great, he is only 18months but he loves watching anything with signing on it!
    • How do you teach you grandson to do the signs? 
    • Hi I am Emily Lucas and I looking into using design to help teachers and parents teach babies and young children sign language. I would really love to here about you experiences teaching or learning sign language, how were you taught, why did you start learning or teaching you baby to sign? Any information would be helpful. 
    • Hi there, Hope you are all enjoying learning to sign! Despite being diagnosed with a hearing impairment at age 13, with likelihood being I've had one since early childhood, I have never been given support to learn sign language as a supportive communication facility. I do wonder if this is because sign language is not something people know, so it wouldn't have been much help. It's why we need to all play a part in learning some sign. We don't know who we are going to meet who uses sign. You
    • Hello Everyone I am Marion,  I started out learning Makaton signing as I work with adults who have ASD and I want to be able to community with service users who are non-verbal or have difficulty communicating. Honestly I never understood how learning to communicate with others could make such a difference for the person and also for myself, it opens up a whole new level of trust and relationship which is priceless.  I have always wanted to learn to sign, and started to learn singing with si
    • Sign language interested me ever since I saw Mr Tumble on TV as a kid 😂  I love learning languages, and I've kept meaning to actually learn BSL for a few years now. I've found it hard just using youtube and learning random words, and not having anyone to practise with, so I kept losing motivation. One video pointed out how much more difficult masks make it for deaf and hard of hearing people to understand what other people are saying, removing the option of lipreading,  so now is a gre
    • Hi everyone! I'm a hearing person, and I'm currently in my final year of a maths degree. While I've picked up a few random signs in the past, I'm now taking the British-sign beginner course, so I can put more effort into learning BSL, in a structured way. I've wanted to learn BSL for quite a while, and now I've got the time and resources for it! Looking forward to learning to sign with you all!
