Hello,

I am Mair.

Just a beginner at BSL but enjoying it....I am probably terrible at this but practice makes perfect I am sure!  Thought I'd post a little attempt at an intro (Mostly because when the BSL course said to introduce yourself I assumed it meant in BSL but I can see from everyone else it probably didn't....thought I'd set myself the challenge anyway!!)

I welcome feedback (But please don't just be like 'hey you're rubbish!!! - I am trying to learn and am brand new at it so anything I could do better or need to think about would be great!).

I am well aware I am not very good at this yet but it's like my first few days of trying to learn around other work so I think I'll get it soon!

About me...I work for a charity doing admin and also working with vulnerable families and children.

I actually learn't the BSL alphabet in 1996 when I was 17 and didn't know I remembered it until recently!

As I learn best by doing things and work well with my hands it seems that this is perfect for me because I can do it to learn it!

🙂

Happy 2021!

 

so after like 8 attempts of making a video and laughing at myself every time the audio has worked and the visual hasn't for some reason - so I don't know if it will post - if not sorry!

Hi Mair,

Not sure if you have received this message so sending again. ;)  I too had trouble with the video to start with. Sometimes it is the site. However if it is not this might help.

Click on the red button. When this changes to a blue square start to record your message. Click on the blue square to stop recording. Click on INSERT. Wait a couple of minutes until your video pops back on. Play and check it is what you want to send. press SUBMIT. good luck

    • Hi claire, I  can normally do sometimes over the weekends if you are still looking for practice Sue
    • Waiting in chat room if anyone wants a quick practice  
    • The dates the other lady said about are no good to me but can try another time say for example Fridays in the day time perhaps or at the weekend/   Thanks Claire
    • Hi Becky   That would be a lovely idea as I have trained before in BSL and have got a bit rusty and need to refresh my knowledge. I work with young people and in the community it is difficult to know when your skills are needed. This being Deaf awareness week made me feel I needed to carry on with my online course and try to get less rusty. Claire
    • Hi Aaron, I wou;ld love to practice sometime please. I am better earlier than later times as I had a brian tumour and now have M.E. so 4pm would suit me best. My computer always seems to freeze in the chatroom so I prefer to zoom. If you send me your email add. and let me know what day is best for you I can send you zoom details. Sue
