Hi there, nice to meet you all. I'm Helen, originally from Scotland but now living in Spain since October 2019. I've lived a pretty nomadic lifestyle as I'm a teacher and teacher trainer in English as a Foreign Language. I've worked in Turkey, Egypt, the UAE, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Myanmar. I have worked with children with learning disabilities but, until now, I have never had a Deaf or deaf student, but I am sure there must be lots of people out there who need or want to learn English as a second language. The more I have started thinking about it, the more I think there must be a real need for teachers with the knowledge and skills to help such people. I started doing some research and it occurred to me that it would be useful to be able to use BSL myself.

    • I have just come across this online practice club https://remark.uk.com/sign-club/ has anyone used it? My BSL is still very basic and I wanted to know what the standard was like before I try it.
    • I am still slow with fingerspelling but generally get the vowels right when signing myself. I find reading someone else's fingerspelling quickly enough much more difficult - I've just started to concentrate on the position of their thumb to get the vowels right.
    • Hi, my name's Ellie and I'm learning BSL because I've always wanted to! I'm very interested in languages (I have studied french for 4 years) and think BSL would be a very valuable language to learn next.
    • Hi everyone! I’m a new learner of BSL and wanted to join the forum. I am a primary school teacher looking for CPD opportunities. I have a child in my class who is Deaf and this child has really inspired me to find out more about the Deaf community and learn BSL for myself. Whilst working with this child and visitors to my classroom, such as an advisory teacher for the Deaf and Speech and Language Therapists, I’ve picked up a few useful signs but I wanted to learn BSL properly. I’m finding it really interesting and enjoyable so far and I cannot wait to complete my BSL online course- it will feel like a real personal and professional achievement for me!☺️

    • 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]
