Why I'm Learning BSL (learning I BSL why?)


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have decided to give it a go as I love languages. 

I do not personally know anyone that uses BSL, but having found myself with a lot of extra time during this pandemic, I thought that this could be a good opportunity to expand my horizon and learn something new. Also, I suffer from laryngitis and last year I had really bad episode of Laryngitis and was unable to speak for several weeks; now I wished I had learnt how to sign then as it would have really helped me communicating with my husband rather than having to write everything down all the time! 

I have only done 3 lessons so far but loved them all. It also a quite good exercise for me to try and lipread as well as learning the signs. My lip reading skills are awful, not sure if it's because I'm Italian or because I'm just really bad at it, it might be a combination of both tbh!

    • Hey Sue, You are correct, I have indeed used the wrong sign- I used the sign for Son/Boy instead of the sign for Brother (Brother is most defiantly two knuckles knocking together)  Glad someone Is checking these haha Lola 
    • Hi Lola, Can I just check. Is the sign for son also used for brother. The only sign for brother I know is both knuckles infront of body moving up and down? Thanks for help sue

    • Hey, ex script consultant here, In terms of screenplays it all should be written in English with English grammar, including all of the "Spoken" lines.  If you want the character to be authentic and genuine, give the part to a genuine deaf actor who will know the how to bring the words to life with their hands.   I wish you all the luck in the world! and if you need and ex-script consultant on your team you know where to find me Lola
