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 Im Harriet and i'm learning with my daughter Erika. We are learning BSL because my son has autism and is currently non verbal and we hope he will respond to signing.
    • Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone here can help me. I have written a play, a solo show, and there are a couple of sections in which I will be signing BSL. I completed a certifying basic BSL course, so I can sign, but these concepts are quite subtle and tricky (mainly about spirituality and religion, or certain specific actions such as 'stumbling'). I know some of them, found others online, but I still don't have all of them so I'm wondering whether anyone can send me in the right directi
    • Hi All, so I’ve had my hearing aid for approx. 1 year, started learning sign language a couple of weeks ago and seem to be getting on ok with the basics, I’m a gymnastics coach, personal trainer, I have a day job and I’m adult inclusive ice skater and I have two children who are also learning sign language with me so we can communicate if my hearing completely goes. 
    • Hi all, I thought I would answer the 'why?' question which I thought would be easier than it is! It made me think for sure! Learning BSL has for a long time been something I wanted to do and should have done a long time ago. As a youngster I spent time abroad and the friends I made at school didn't speak English and due to us being kids we just worked round it and communicated in our own version of gestures/signs. Over the months (I was the only English speaking kid there) we developed a pr

    • Hi, I've just completed BSL 101 and I'm starting 102 next month.  I want to create my own Vocabulary sheets to put around the house but I'm struggling to find BSL clipart or pictures for certain words.  Is there a stock database I can access that just has pictures (not videos) that I can copy and paste? Thanks people - Lisa
    • Hi Georgina! I am also a primary school teacher and I have also just started tutoring a boy with complex medical needs and GDD who uses BSL to support his speech.    I think it would be great for all children to learn basic BSL to ensure all children are able to learn in an inclusive environment 😊  
    • Hello Akashaa! Let me know if you would like to get some practice in! I am also just starting out and would love to Zoom with some people for practice maybe 10 minutes/day twice a week? Would you like that?
