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

    • What I mean is that you've learned so much by yourself or elsewhere that the teachers think you're too advanced for a level 1 class but you would start at level 2 and start getting qualifications from there. Or do you think it's worth it to get a level 1 as well? For example, when I did french evening classes, I learned enough French by myself to go straight to intermediate/gsce classes and not start at the beginner ones.
    • Hello,  My Name is Sarah, My daughter is deaf and is beginning to learn sign so I thought I would learn to. 
    • I'm in a very similar boat to you. I also have some issues with hearing/auditory processing as well but because I'm autistic and have panic disorder I can often get non-verbal when overwhelmed and it's happened during uni before, even, and it was really hard to deal with. Compared to other languages I've studied, BSL has not been that hard to learn for me.
    • Hey Lia, congrats on your baby I also just joined
    • Transcription: "Hello. Name me El and I'm student university. Sign Language, I think, beautiful language, and I want learn sign language." Hey everyone. I'm El (he/him), I'm 20 years old and I'm a uni student and wannabe polyglot. Whilst my passion for learning languages is a reason why I am learning BSL, I have some difficulties with hearing/auditory proccessing (not fully known yet) and I'm a semi-verbal autistic so I sometimes use sign to communicate if not AAC.  If I have time, I might consider taking a Level 1 course that's in my local area, as I enjoy the environment of adult learning from when I did GSCE french evening classes at college. Currently, I am learning from watching videos on youtube and using the SignBSL app if I need to look up a word. Also, feel free to correct how I sign :)
    • My 1 year old can sign all his needs to me eg: milk, tired, nappy, food. This is before he is able to verbally express his needs to me which I think is amazing. So I thought, wouldn’t it be lovely to be able to do parent and baby/toddler classes where I can teach them too! 
    • My name is Lia I have been a beauty therapist for 9 years. I had a baby last year and do not wish to go back to my old job and would love to learn sign language because it fascinates me and my father in law is fluent in BSL. It also opens more job opportunities up; I would love to do BSL classes with babies and toddlers in the future. 😁
