Hi, I'm Neil.

I started to learn BSL as part of my volunteering as a disabled ski instructor, when one of my skiers lost her hearing.

With Covid etc, I've not really progressed with all our voluntary activities stopped.

To keep my sanity I started writing short stories and I want to enter a summer competition with a romance I have had in mind.

The main character is a deaf lady Isla, who has had an admirer all her life, who has now returned from university and travelling to muster up the courage to actually talk with her.

I have him learning basic BSL. My idea is for him to learn as they chat, through signing and a few adventures.

But I need help with the sentence structure of the signing part. The hope is to have some humour with it as part of the romance and how the hero teaches his family to also sign, so our heroine can be included..

It will only be a short story, so it shouldn't take too much time...

Hopefully if anyone can help with signs that are similar, that during learning and practicing BSL that can inject a little more humour and mishap into the story then all the better.

Thanks.

Stay Safe everyone.

Neil

    • I have just come across this online practice club https://remark.uk.com/sign-club/ has anyone used it? My BSL is still very basic and I wanted to know what the standard was like before I try it.
    • I am still slow with fingerspelling but generally get the vowels right when signing myself. I find reading someone else's fingerspelling quickly enough much more difficult - I've just started to concentrate on the position of their thumb to get the vowels right.
    • Hi, my name's Ellie and I'm learning BSL because I've always wanted to! I'm very interested in languages (I have studied french for 4 years) and think BSL would be a very valuable language to learn next.
    • Hi everyone! I’m a new learner of BSL and wanted to join the forum. I am a primary school teacher looking for CPD opportunities. I have a child in my class who is Deaf and this child has really inspired me to find out more about the Deaf community and learn BSL for myself. Whilst working with this child and visitors to my classroom, such as an advisory teacher for the Deaf and Speech and Language Therapists, I’ve picked up a few useful signs but I wanted to learn BSL properly. I’m finding it really interesting and enjoyable so far and I cannot wait to complete my BSL online course- it will feel like a real personal and professional achievement for me!☺️

    • Iris, you have posted some interesting questions, and a couple of them could be expanded considerably. I would like to respond at length but not just now. I'll try and do so in a week or so. Are we permitted to communicate outside the forum? [email protected]
