Hi, it's prob too late now, a few games we have played. 1, RABBIT. One person in a circle points to another, that person has to immediately adopt a bunny pose, with fingers (Dog Sign) pointing down infront of them. Person on their right has to add ears as 2 fingers up and person on their left, has to add the other ear to create the bunny. After a few practice rounds, you start eliminating people for being too slow.

Another is Fruit Salad. Seated like in Musical Chairs, pick 3 fruits such as apple, orange and pineapple and go around the circle 1,2,3, apple orange pineapple, till everyone is a fruit, including the teacher who is standing in a gap which is part of the circle. Teacher calls out a fruit, and those students switch places, the teacher aims to get into one of those seats, which means someone is left standing. That person now picks a fruit and game continues. Fast paced and fun. Then add 1 other element. When the person standing signs Fruit Salad, everyone has to switch places, which will still leave someone standing. Naturally all Fruits are signed, so watching and concentrating are key. Enjoy

    • hello everyone, I went on an an introduction course to BSL last week and now I am hooked! Unfortunately I have since fractured my wrist so am hindered somewhat, but still very eager to learn more and improve.  Please say hi!  
    • English:
      Mickey, you must = You have to // It is obligatory // There is no choice
      Mickey, you must not = You are not allowed to // It is against the rules


      German:
      River, you must (Du musst) = You have to // It is obligatory // There is no choice
      River, you must not (Du musst nicht) = You don't have to // It is not obligatory // There is a choice


      Which is it in BSL, like English or German? Or maybe neither?
    • In English, one of the ways to ask a question is to invert the subject and the verb. For example: statement = "You can help me Nardole." >> question "Can you help me Nardole?".


      In BSL, is the structure:
      a) CAN YOU HELP ME ?
      b) YOU CAN HELP ME ?
      c) YOU HELP ME ?
      d) Something else?
    • These are basically all the signs i know so far, and i don't know if they were all correct or communicated properly. But what I'm trying to say in the video is: Hi! My name is Noah. I live in Sweden. I want to learn BSL because i want to live in the UK. I am hearing but sometimes i feel too exhausted to speak and sometimes loud noises (listening to any sound) hurts my ear, because i'm autistic. And sometimes i want to sign and not having to speak (or listen). So this is an experiment (to try using signs sometimes instead). If you want to contact me, please contact me! Thank you and good night! Bye!
    • Hi! I'm Noah, I'm 22 years old and from Sweden! I've been wanting to learn a bit of sign language as sort of an experiment for myself. I'm hearing, and currently haven't got any signing friends. But I'm autistic and find that sometimes when I'm exhausted either from too much sensory stimulation such as sound, or socially, I just wish I could communicate without having to formulate sounds or listen to them if they have a certain tone that for some reason hurts my ears at that moment. I don't know it I'll be able to keep the knowledge of BSL up, now that I don't have anyone to practice with and live i Sweden - but I want to try. It made more sense to me to practice BSL instead of Swedish sign language, because I want to live in the UK eventually and get more integrated British culture. And now hopefully I have the chance to get to know som British or Irish folks!
    • Hello I am on the assessment for chapter 9 of basic BSL course. This sign came up in the assessment but I can't find it in the learning. It also does not tell you the right answer after the test it just shows its wrong. If you know I would be very grateful. I have taken a screen grab of it in case I sign it wrong.   
    • Not sure if a reply almost a year later is much use but if you're interested, @hannahtheOT on Twitter is a hearing occupational therapist who works in a Deaf mental health ward!
