Hi I have a question and I don't know if this is the appropriate place to ask it?

How do you say 'I have a question?'

Do you see something like 'Question me have' or 'Me have question'?

Sorry if its wrong I'm still a beginner.

Hi,

 

Im still a newbie but I think you can just get away with signing Question.  Rather than Topic>Subject>Question

THE SIGNS
QUESTION? - Index finger and thumb tips touch to make make "O" shape which traces question mark shape in front of body.
 

Unless you want to phrase it in a way that you are asking a specific question.

The structure of asking a question in BSL is:

TOPIC > SUBJECT > QUESTION

e.g.

LIVE (topic) > YOU (subject) > WHERE? (question)

You can see this in the phrases:

Spoken English

British Sign Language

What is your name?

Name you what?

How old are you?

Age you what?

What job do you have?

Work you what? / Work you where?

Where do you live?

Live you where?

Are you Deaf, or hearing?
Deaf hearing you which?

 

 

Hope this helps :)

    • I live in Chester, the location. Does anyone know if there is a sign for the city's name?
    • Hi! My name is Julia, and I live in London. I'm learning sign language because I love learning languages, and I also think that the more people that know sign language, the better! I am looking forward to being able to communicate and connect with more people. I've recorded this video and realised I forgot to do the lip pattern, so that's something I should definitely work on!   
    • Hi  My name is Natalie and I am learning British Sign Language.
    • Same I'm doing it for 3 months  
    • Hi my name is Katie. I live in Staffordshire in England. I am 27 years old. I am a children’s safeguarding social worker. I wanted to learn sign language as I have aways been interested in the language, I always am so impressed when I see others use it. I also want to be able to use it with parents and children in my work 
    • I am a teacher that has decided to practice sign language with a group of students that do not wish to learn Spanish. I signed up to the BSL course so that I can give them basic lessons in communication in another language. The aim is too introduce them to a wider world and to get them to be more inclusive. I also get to learn a new language in the process. There is the added benefit that the children will be able to talk as much as they like in class without making a sound.
    • Hello all, hope you're doing well!  I've always wanted to learn sign language, not just because I love learning new languages and as a visual / kinaesthetic learner I find the process of learning signs very enjoyable, but also because I want to be able to ensure that I can communicate with people who don't wish to / cannot speak with their voice. Everyone has a right to feel comfortable in conversation, and to be able to communicate with anyone they wish to, so I hope to contribute towards making that a reality. Hopes for the future aside, I am 16 (nearly 17) years old, and a student.  Wishing you all luck on your signing journeys!
