Thank you for sharing this, I happen to work in early years and currently sign using what I have learnt so far in BSL or Makaton. I can't wait to have a look at this site as I do work with a Deaf baby. ☺️💜
First timer who has just started to lean BSL. Look forward to using it proficiently to speak to people all over London, although I am a slow learner when it comes to language.
I started as I work in the law enforcement in London, and have found that our translators (on the phone) can help a lot with other spoken languages, but we struggle to communicate with the deaf. I'd like to change that and learn the language to be able to speak to people from those communities. With London being so diverse, I'd like to take a small step in making communication easier.
I am a retired Scottish Student. Just started BSL2 and would like to practice online particularly with someone in Scotland - this minimises the geographical variations in the Language. I sign with my left hand which is not a problem unless I am using it to eat a YORKIE! bar at the same time!!. I am not Deaf and have speech and have been involved with the Deaf Community for the last couple of years as a volunteer.
