Hi Sue!
Brilliant video!  You were so quick and confident.  I was slow to understand everything but that’s because it’s the first time outside of the course I’ve had to follow a full conversation.  Really great to have the opportunity.
There were a few things in terms of feedback, but only small details.  I think you’re using your index finger to sign ‘s’ and it’s usually the little finger on your primary hand.  For daughter your signing a single D and I think it’s two.  And when you signed married I think you used a finger to signify ‘I’ rather than pointing to your chest.  Otherwise, amazing! 
I’ll post a video back, see what you think and if you’d still like to set up a zoom meeting that would be great.

Best wishes,

Naomi

Hi Sue,

I seem to be having trouble creating a video under the file size allowance.  If you’d like to chat, we can set up zoom or I could meet you in the beginners chat room at a specific time?  I’m not working at the moment so pretty flexible with times.  Just let me know what you prefer.

Hi!

I only have one possibily useful thing to add and I'd be grateful if someone could confirm it. 

When I was taught about names my teacher said spell the name then 'say' it. So I'd fingerspell Tasmin then mouth Tasmin. 

That may not be something everyone does though, as the online course I'm now doing didn't say that. 

You're doing great though!!

    • 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 :)
