Learning BSL with my Mum

Hi all, my Mum and I are learning BSL together and using this course.

My younger brother had delayed speech when he was really young and Makaton was amazing for communication. 

It's always been something we wanted to learn but we've now committed.

Every week we aim to video call each other and learn together giving ourselves homework and challenges, it's great and we're already starting to recognise some signs in other conversations. We've just finished learning the signs for different animals on the course.

I'm looking forward to finishing the course and moving on to more complicated sentence structures because currently, I do't know how to structure sentences correctly.

 

I'm hoping to use this form as a means of further explanation and finding new signs because sometimes I think Google can be a bit scarce.

 

Good luck to everyone else on the course and who's on their journey of learning BSL.

    • Sorry I didn't look at the site until late on Friday. Can we try to agree some time on Sunday or perhaps one evening next week. I presume we can both "enter" a Beginners Chat Room at an agreed day and time and see how we get on.
    • +Sorry the above message should read....pulling it slowly across mouth to the RIGHT side not left.
    • I also do not know the chat room system.  It would be great meeting virtually to practice, I am usually free on Fridays or Sundays but can do some evenings
    • I am a primary school teacher and last year I had a child start in my class who was deaf and starting on his BSL journey. My TA and I signed up over 30 people in our school to learn BSL to support him, his brother and any future children attending our school.
    • I am fairly new to BSL, although I have known the alphabet for almost my whole life.  I have always wanted to learn to sign for conversation and communication but have never got around to it.  It's a hot topic, quite rightly, at the moment and an interaction (me alphabetically spelling out a directive to a BSL using customer in my job today) have spurred me on to do it.   So here I am!  i look forward to reading your comments and being a part of this community.
    • Hi Claudette, I have also recently started learning BSL online. Having to go over and over the signs and "grammar" but it is slowly sinking in. Like you, I don't have anyone to practice with and when ever I have looked at the Chat Room there never seems to be anyone there (I am not sure I know how the system works to be honest). I would be game to try meeting virtually to practice.
