Looking for someone to practice with

Recommended Posts

Hi. I passed level 1 about 14 years ago but still remember some words. I would love to practice with someone who can help teach me new words and have a conversation. Thank you

New myself is there a way of speaking privately that you are happy with?  I just wondered what area you  are from. different sign areas.

Facebook maybe?  let me know. thanks

will look on laptop. sure i downloaded Skype but haven't touched it in years.  If you dont mind me asking what has made you think of picking up with sign again after 14 years. ?  I saw people signing and the enthusiasm that goes in to what the deaf want to "say" made me want to try to learn.  I am totally confused with longer sentences as to order of signing words! thanks.

Hi Lyd

My job means I work with the public about 20-30 times per year and I get frustrated when I can’t communicate properly with a deaf person. I always have a go but would like to be more confident. Also, my cousin who doesn’t live close by is deaf and we are both going to a family wedding next year and I would love to be able to chat with her.

    • Hi Iain, thanks for your response, much appreciated. I have done facebook before, but not Skype, I will try and get it set up on my computer and get back to you when I am successful. Failing that, do you do Facetime please? Cheers, Aidan
    • Hi Aidan, I've been learning online since January, haven't had much chance to practice with real people so would like to give it a go! I'm available for Skype most evenings this week except Thursday - I'll message Skype name if anyone interested.
    • Hello Louise, Thanks you for your reply.  I have only just noticed your email - so this might be too late.   I have tried to open a Skype account but it would appear it costs money.  However I can face time from my computer if that is acceptable. If we don't get together today may I wish you all the best for tomorrow.    I to have an assessment this week, which I am not looking forward to.  I am part way through BSL 1 and having a lot of fun I have found a fingerspelling game - link below  https://www.signlanguageforum.com/bsl/fingerspelling/fingerspelling-game/   but you probably know that already.  I managed three on my first attempt. Have fun and stay safe Kind regards Keith

    • Hi, I am learning Level 1 currently and have some exams on March 25th, so looking for someone to help me practice, via Facebook, Skype or Webcam. I am a beginner, so don't worry if you are too, I really need practice reading fingerspelling. Thanks for any replies, Aidan 🙂
    • Hello everyone! I am designing my final collection for my degree and I need a phrase translating from words to signing. Problem is that I want it to make sense and be perfect in order to be right so as to pass the message properly and raise awareness. The clothes will be made with sustainable methods and after completion will be sent to be published in the fashion revolution magazines. Can you help me? 
    • Hello - My name is Keith and I thought learning another language would be fun.  BSL has gripped my enthusiasm - although some members of our course class meet up out of college I would appreciate some more practice.  I have never tried Skype but am willing to give it a go.  All the best in your endeavours - live long and prosper. Keith
