Good learning advice

Recommended Posts

Hello my name is Lydia.  I found this site a few days ago but not many people seem to reply to each other.   I have passed level 1 and just started level 2.  Due to first teacher just teaching vocab I am behind with learning placement and sentence structure. I know I won't be a natural but have been bitten with wanting to learn! Please could anybody spare me time or good advice !

Hi Lyd,

 

I'm in the same situation, looking to get more involved. Passed Level 1, on level 2. Happy for any BSL interaction.

What area are you and where do you study? Have you started going to any deaf clubs, because that is something I need to get involved with now.

Hope you had a good xmas, Stuart

Hello Stuart

 

Thanks for replying hope you are having a lovely Christmas too.  

I have started level two with a much better teacher but feel a don't have anybody to practice with.  I need help on how to THINK SIGN before i move my hands instead of thinking English first.  I live in the Blackburn area of |Lancashire.  I have been to ELDS Coffee mornings mixing with very patient deaf people.!

    • That’d be cool. I know very little but still cool
    • Hi Sharna, I have just joined so am also new at this - I have been trying to learn sign language and i am currently doing my level 1 so just at the beginning as well.  I have been going to a class but it would be good to be able to practice during the week. 
    • Hi. I’m sharna.  I wear hearing aids as I am hard of hearing and because of that I’ve always wanted to learn bsl but the courses are very expensive and I tried with just an online course but then I couldn’t practice with people which is what I want (otherwise it’ll be like in one ear and out the other but about eyes instead of ears. Also - I made an ear joke haha - not wanting to offend anyone by that though   If you can’t laugh...) I really want it as a second language to the point of I can do it without much thought like I do with English.  And hopefully I’ll make friends. Nice to meet you all
    • hi I'm chloe I'm 26 and currently learning bsl level 1, I have a son who was born deaf hes almost three now and he amazes me every day with his ability to learn and communicate he has been my inspiration to want to learn sign. I've been doing level one since January and love every moment of it even though I find it particularly tricky at times and would love to be able to practice or help with others where I can. thanks for taking the time to read this and happy signing xx :-) :-)
    • hi erica my name ve would love to help you where i can i get axious when i video calling too but prehaps we can help each other i have just past my level 102 so might help regards   ve
    • Hello everyone i'm pretty new to bsl but would love to learn it. It would help in my job in case i get any deaf customers , it would also be good if i made any deaf friends. If anybody is up for helping me , i'm not straight forward with video call but i'd like to talk about stuff more before i do as i have anxiety and it's a little difficult to video call with a stranger haha. Thanks for taking your time to read this!
    • Hi Trespasser, I work on Wensleydale Railway in North Yorkshire.   
    • Hi Ken, what heritage railway would that be then? .. Also glad to see your looking to expand your driving tuition to cater for the deaf community, I guess that will bring in a bit more custom for you and also make a few new friends along the way ..
