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

    • Hello, everyone! I started doing the level 1 course from British-sign, so far I'm having a lot of fun doing it! However, reinforced learning takes one topic already interesting & makes it a lot better, learning on your own is comfortable, sometimes slow, and can burn you out quickly, but working together helps a ton! I hope we can work together to achieve what we all want to do! ^^ My name is Ekito and I can hear, I am 18 and plan to learn more BSL after I finish this Level 1 course, the course at my own college is very expensive and they won't help me pay for it unfortunately, but I have alternatives to achieve what I want in life :)   Sorry I didn't record myself signing, I feel that I need to improve my fingerspelling & signing before showing myself haha, I also looked like I just woke up XD
