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

So sorry for the late reply, my class loved them, we had a few games the first week back to get them in the swing again. 

 

If you have anymore ideas that would be great ☺

    • Hi,  I'm learning BSL as I have been loosing my hearing for the past 2 years and am feeling a bit left out of the speaking community I grew up in. I learned to lip read sub consciously and out of necessity, but I still feel left out in crowds and while trying to talk to people while outside with lots of noise.   I just want to feel included but I'm scared as none of my friends sign or feel the need to learn! Sorry, didn't want to be a downer! Am having lots of fun learning though! 
    • I have always been interested in Sign Language and I got more intrigued since I started working for the Interpretation&Translation Service NHS here in Edinburgh. We provide BSL Interpreters which are outsourced with an agency. And it would be great to get become involved more with Deaf people, the community workwise. I am attending an Introduction Course and continue with Level 1 in August. Level 2 and 3 at some point would be great if I can afford that. I found out that we have to pay the highest fees here for those courses in Scotland/if not the UK.
    • Dear Wendy, I am attending a BSL INtroduction Course in Edinburgh and we have a girl who is 27 years old. She was diagnosed with a brain turmor at the age of 10 or so I think. She suffers from short term memory since then and she still catches up with basic signs and small talk. It helps her a lot to be filmed while she signs sentences or words and puts them together. Might be an idea for yourself, too.
    • I am a beginner and find this quite useful I am fine fingerspelling myself but receptive skills are not really good. I am ok with the first few letters but if there are more than 6 letters I am lost, lol. Also I am German and not native to English language. I am fluent in English, though it is easier for me to read the word "George" for example and I know how to prounounce the name. But if words/names are fingerspelled to me, I find it (still) difficult to recognise them. I guess that I will improve by time.
    • Hej guys, I am Annika from Edinburgh, 36 years old and have been learning with books and YT, BSL Watchzone since few months. Doing Introduction since beginning of Feb and going to continue with Level 1 in August. I am studying with a Deaf Tutor at Deaf Action.

      Would be awesome to find other people from Edinburgh to meet up with and to get help here, keen on doing L2 and eventually L3 in near future if I can afford that.

      Other than that I like my two cats, I work for an Interpretation Service at NHS, I enjoy walking though nature, Outlander and Star Trek conventions, upcycling and cooking/eating non cruelty food.
    • Hi Alexis, I live in Edinburgh and a beginner, too. Happy to Skype or meet up if you are in Edinburgh some time.
    • Hi Alexia, I am attending an Introduction Course here in Edinburgh and will continue in August with Level 1
      If you want we can have some Skype conversation at the weekend. Cheers, Annika
