Hi!

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 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?
