Need help finding vocabulary

Hello,

I'm taking an online Level 1 and 2 BSL course and I can't identify some of the signs the used in the video lessons. They also don't list all the signs they used in the videos and it is nearly impossible to figure out the signs from context. I have been using a few websites online that offer vocabulary searches, but they often don't have what I'm looking for. I am also hosting a BSL chat and study group for my colleagues, and I put together lesson supplements to help them, but am often unable to find the signs I need online to post on the lesson supplements (since it takes me ages sometimes to figure out what some of the signs are, or am unable to find a particular variant). Are there any online resources that have a more comprehensive list of signs I can look through like a visual dictionary? Here are the sign search websites I'm using: 

https://www.spreadthesign.com/en.gb/search/ 

https://www.signbsl.com/

https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/

https://www.britishsignlanguage.com/

Or if anyone is able to chat with me via Zoom to help me figure out some of the signs I'm struggling with, please let me know and I'd be happy to host a Zoom session. Any advice welcome!!

Thank you so much,

Gabi

    • Hello, please could anyone help me with the sign for Ready, Steady/Set, Go!  Thank you in advance
    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills. 
    • I don’t have a great answer, as many do that I have read here. I am just enjoying learning new things, I want to be able to be inclusive when possible and generally just fascinated when I see people having conversations in sign.
    • Let’s see…I am original Swiss but living and working in the uk for 17 years. I am learning BSL out of interest. I love watching when people use it in public and always think it would be so much nicer if more people could understand and join.  
    • Hi my name is Craig.  I am learning sign because I think everybody deserves to be heard.  I have been in multiple situations where I have not been able to communicate effectively with somebody who uses sign as their main form of communication and would like to have the ability to be able to communicate if this happens again so that they feel more included.  I recently saw some examples of this on television that really struck a cord with me as I have travelled extensively and know how it feels t
