Learning and remembering sign language

Hi everyone,

So I’m new to sign language and I have never learnt another language other English in my life and I’m finding it quite difficult to remember. Does anybody have any tips or advice on how to remember and practice sign language as I find it really interesting and want to possibly go into a carrier using it in the future. 
 

Thank you for all of your help and I hope to hear your advice

Hi Spencer

I'm just about to take the final assessment / examination.

What I did was just take 1 hour each day studying the topic you're currently on. I found it best watching the videos and writing notes down for ,myself either with the description underneath the videos or a way that I would remember and associate the sign with. 

I would then make sure I could remember and successfully sign and understand all the different signs on that page before ticking it off and moving on to the next one.

Slow to some people but worth a shot. :)

I would replay the video twice and then practice the sign 4 times. Then I would repeat the process for the next word. I would write each word on a piece of paper as I go along. After learning 5-10 words, I would start signing from the first word on my list (memory only, without looking at the videoclip) and then continue from there, and this helped me revise and learn at the same time.

    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.

    • Hello everyone, I am new to BSL and would like to say hi 👋 I have always wanted to learn sign language, and I finally have started and loving it so far, my little girl learns sign at school so it is a nice way to develop an essential skill and form of communication together. I have a passion for learning.
