I am vey new to BSL but have always wanted to learn. I love meeting people and learning about them so this will help me meet more people. I have a functional disability along with non epileptic seizures, and I know how it feels to be excluded because of something different. The shop where I work does not have anyone who can sign, so I am wanting to change that too seeing as they want to be more inclusive and as they took a chance on me, I decided to be proactive. This is me introducing myself a little. I know I need to work on facial expressions. Please critique (I know I add an extra vowel to my name as well, but I'm nervous)

Hi Julie, 

That's such a great reason to learn too, well done you on being so proactive with it. Same here too really. I have always wanted to learn BSL and working in a GP surgery I feel it would make us even more inclusive to people who otherwise may not feel as such all the time. I have almost completed the course, yet still feel like such a newbie and getting everything to stick in my head with how things are worded different is something that is taking me a wee bit longer than I would like haha! But I am getting there. I would like to be more active in this community too as I feel it would help with practice. 

It's nice meet you and keep going with your learning! :)

P.S. Practice makes perfect, right?

Definitely practice makes perfect! I'm nearly halfway through the introduction to BSL but this looks like a really good place to practice. Friendly :). Hate the webcam but it won't let me upload better video from phone. Don't know how to delete this one now I've recorded it. I will get used to where I am eventually lol

I've only just started this week so it's fresh in my mind. Might start forgetting some as I do more lol. But watching a programme I'll try do signs for things I've done or pick random words to fingerspell. At work I keep showing other's how to do some as well as family. They're already sick of me 😂

Hi everyone!

I have been learning BSL from the BSL online course, its great to see so many people have taken up the course too! I am interested in sign language as I am a primary school teacher. I did a placement in a school with an additional deaf unit. This made me realise how important it is to be able to communicate with everyone and to include everyone. I have been enjoying the course so far!

We're all the same Rachel which is why this is a good place. I tried getting someone to learn with me so we could practice but no interest. And Lisa, I'm the same. I want to be able to talk to everyone I can. Both videos really good. At least we can do it safely here and critique without insults

    • Hi, I’m skye 
    • 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!
