Hello Everyone

I am Marion,  I started out learning Makaton signing as I work with adults who have ASD and I want to be able to community with service users who are non-verbal or have difficulty communicating. Honestly I never understood how learning to communicate with others could make such a difference for the person and also for myself, it opens up a whole new level of trust and relationship which is priceless.  I have always wanted to learn to sign, and started to learn singing with sign at a playgroup which is fun to do, I am now teaching my grandson little signs while he is learning to talk because I want him to be able to communicate with all children.

Hi, i recently completed a course in makaton which i use the sign when asking him to do something or going places, like car, or bed, please and thankyou, he can do a couple when he wants too 😁  we also watch a lot of mr tumble and we have a singing with sign dvd from a charity called singing hands which is great, he is only 18months but he loves watching anything with signing on it!

    • What is the sign for meow - as in the sound a cat makes?  
    • Hi there, my name is Hamish and I’ve just started learning BSL. I love it, and I’m really engaging with my course. I am a drummer, so having recently watched “Sound of Metal” with Riz Ahmed, I was really moved and started learning BSL. As such, I’m not a member of the Deaf community, but I’m still going to preserver with BSL. I find that I struggle a lot with getting my words out sometimes, so having a physical mode of communication really helps. Thank you! Hamish 
    • I've only just started the course and worried that my memory would not be good enough but I've just completed section 3 and surprised myself, got a long way to go though. I agree with the comment that A and U are easy but it's easy to struggle with remembering the others in the middle of trying to sign or read a sign. I found remembering the letter I was my tallest finger (like the letter) made it easier.
    • 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!☺️
