Hallo! (Waves)

Recommended Posts

Hiya!

My name's Louise, and I'm learning BSL as one of a number of different languages during lockdown.  I tried a couple of different courses, but eventually found british-sign.co.uk, which is really brilliant.  I'm three modules in and really enjoying it so far.  I've been interested in learning BSL for years - I was signed up to do a course at an Adult Education centre many years ago, but they cancelled it before we could start and never rescheduled.  I don't quite feel up to having a conversation in BSL with anyone just yet, but I've been demonstrating the signs to my partner and a couple of my friends, which has been helping them stick in my head.  I don't know anyone who uses BSL normally, but I work in theatre, so I have come across a lot of BSL interpreters with shows, and I love watching them work.  I'm excited that I might be able to understand a little more of what they're saying next time I watch them!

Hi Louise,

I've been also learning BSL and decided to improve as much as I can. Try to make friends with deaf people, it'll help a lot. It helps me :) BesBesides I really love deaf community.  I believe this forum might be a good platform to achieve that. I also decided to start my blog and website to present my thoughts in English and BSL although both languages aren't my first languages. I love challenges in life. I'm trying to present the wideos with subtitles, and subtitles are meant to be in BSL syntax. Check it out and tell me what you think. It's still in progress.  www.sign2feel.com and YouTube channel with one video for now, alphabet video.

All the best 

Greg

    • I have just started learning BSL and have mastered the finger spelling and numbers ( although I have to think about the vowels and as long as it is not too fast!!) and I am now moving on to the next stage of learning signs for things.  I'm not sure why it has always fascinated me, because I do not know anyone who uses it, but it has just always been something I have wanted to do, so whilst I am looking for work, I thought I would use my time to do something useful and rewarding.  I look forward

    • Hi guys, Im lacey. i decided to learn BSL along side my childminding course. Im thoroughly enjoying it so far and have been using sign through out the day so even my kids have been picking up a few signs here and there 
    • Hello! I'm a newbie, part way through and really enjoying learning. I'm left handed and following the left signs, but as I practice I notice that I flip between using both my left and right as primary hand. Obviously as a newbie my vocab is limited, so my question is does it matter? Do I need to work on this now before it becomes a problem further down the line, or does it not matter? Thanks!
