Hi guys, I have recently started learning BSL - extremely beginner!! I am wondering when signing and talking at the same time do I say what I sign or say the sentence. For instance, when singing “name your what” do I say ‘name your what’ or ‘what’s your name’ 

Hopefully this makes sense!!

Hi Ijacoby. This is Delia.  good question. a lot of people get confused with this. BSL is different from SSE (signed suported English.) BSL has its own grammer and not everyword is said for example saying whats your name? in BSL  is,  name you what?is signed name what?  Its difficult to explain as BSL is such a visual language.  Its a good question to ask your tutor. Good luck and enjoy your course.

    • My reasons for learning BSL are because I need to find a new activity to focus on, and to reach out to the Deaf community to make new friends. I'm not someone who goes out and hangs out with people, but I need to change that to decrease my loneliness.
