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! I'm a newbie, part way through and really enjoying learning. I'm left handed and following the left signs, but as I practice I notice that I flip between using both my left and right as primary hand. Obviously as a newbie my vocab is limited, so my question is does it matter? Do I need to work on this now before it becomes a problem further down the line, or does it not matter? Thanks! 
    • Hello Everyone I am 51and joining BSL as I want to make friends here and within the Deaf Community. I have been drawn to Sign language for many years and feel its important to be able to communicate effectively and fluently. I hope you are all keeping safe and well.
    • Hi there.  I'm Louisa and I'm very new to BSL.  My mum taught makaton when I was younger but I didn't pay too much attention or so I thought: I've clearly picked up some bits that link in with BSL.  I work in finance for a council working with adults with physical and sensory impairments and awareness is one of our key messages to the communities we work with.  So I'm learning to be able to communicate better with the people I work with.  I am loving the course so far (only on intro session 4) a

    • Hi, My name is Paula and I decided to learn BSL during lockdown as I have been teaching and I thought it would be good if my learners could at least know how to say “ hello” or “can I help” In sign language so I thought I could bring bits of signing into my lessons.
    • Hi everyone! My name is Hira and I am 19 years old. I am studying Speech and Language Therapy at University and had my first placement last December. Through volunteering and my placement, I have realised how important it is to know the basics of signing in order to communicate with others. For my career, I want to learn BSL so I can sign certain topics with children who have language difficulties during therapy sessions etc. I also love developing skills and although BSL seems really tricky as
    • I have been interested and fascinated by the Deaf community for a while now. Also, I hate the idea that I wouldn't be able to make friends due to differences in language/ability. I want everyone to feel included and comfortable around me regardless of differences. This is why I am learning BSL. 
    • *sighs nervously and waves hand* hello I am Akira. I have been drawn to the Deaf community for a while and decided to act upon it today and no I do not know any Deaf people.
