Video project for learners of BSL

Jeremy Taylor

Recommended Posts

 I am a writer, mostly writing books for people learning languages. One of my books is a language learning joke book - currently translated into 45 different languages. I would be interested in producing an ebook for people learning sign language. It is not difficult to add video to an ebook (though these are only available through Apple Books which means the market is limited to people with an iPhone or iPad) Video takes up quite a lot of ‘space’ so my idea would be to offer my joke book (100 jokes) in English but with the punchline delivered as a short video in BSL. The jokes are pretty innocent and many people will be familiar with ‘waiter waiter’ or 'doctor doctor’ jokes so may know the punchline already but it is still very satisfying to understand it in a ‘language' you are learning.
   I am not looking to make any money out of it, just happy to help people who are learning BSL. I’m completely deaf in one ear so it might not be too long before I need it myself.  Would you like to be involved? Do you know any other people who would also be willing to work on it? You don't have to be a comedian, just someone who is competent at BSL. It shouldn’t take too long and should be a lot of fun - and hopefully make learning BSL (even) more enjoyable.

    • I passed level 1 BSL at night school many years ago but couldn't do level 2 as it was a day time course and I couldn't attend as I was a childminder. I love learning it and it's a good to be able to communicate with everyone. If anyone wants someone to practice with I'm happy to help, I remember quite a bit of what we've done so far but need to speed up.
    • My journey to find an LGBTQ+ friendly platform that offers both entertainment and a sense of belonging led me to an amazing site, webcam.lgbt . What sets this platform apart is not only the wide array of content tailored to our community but also the genuine warmth and acceptance that emanates from both the streamers and the viewers. Every interaction feels like a step towards building a more inclusive and understanding world. It's become more than just a site for entertainment; it's a venue
    • Hello, my name is Amina and I am learning BSL level 1, so I can communicate with deaf people at work. I am currently practicing for exam 102 and 103 which I’m finding difficult, if anyone would like to practice please get in touch.
    • Hello! I'm a product and industrial design student at the University of the Arts London. I'm currently doing an inclusive entertainment project and became intrigued about deaf people and their relationship with music/melodies/sounds. If you are deaf, I would appreciate it if you could fill out the survey below as I am struggling to find insights into this issue on a personal level. It might be a little broad/general because I'm still on my course of action/ if it's an area of interest for t
    • I am Rebecca. I have been learning sign language through British Sign Language webpage for the past 2 years. I haven’t got far with the course. I have some deaf friends in the church I go to Bromley Town Church. I am learning sign language so I can talk to my friends. I am considering becoming one of the interrupters at church if and when I know enough sign language.
