Hello! my name is Becky, I  just started learning BSL last week and I have been really enjoying it so far.  I  noticed there are a few practice rooms on here that  have been empty whenever I have logged in. I wondered if anyone/ or a few of us would like to  "meet up" at a regular time each week to practice. Maybe one evening a week?. All of the Deaf clubs near me have closed down, so it would be lovely to have a place to practice and improve.

Hi Becky,

Yes I can practice Monday11.30am? Can you send me your email address so I can send you zoom details. The chat room hardly ever works for me. My computer usually freezes after 15 mins. Thanks

Hi Becky

 

That would be a lovely idea as I have trained before in BSL and have got a bit rusty and need to refresh my knowledge. I work with young people and in the community it is difficult to know when your skills are needed. This being Deaf awareness week made me feel I needed to carry on with my online course and try to get less rusty.

    • Hi there, my name is Hamish and I’ve just started learning BSL. I love it, and I’m really engaging with my course. I am a drummer, so having recently watched “Sound of Metal” with Riz Ahmed, I was really moved and started learning BSL. As such, I’m not a member of the Deaf community, but I’m still going to preserver with BSL. I find that I struggle a lot with getting my words out sometimes, so having a physical mode of communication really helps. Thank you! Hamish 
    • I've only just started the course and worried that my memory would not be good enough but I've just completed section 3 and surprised myself, got a long way to go though. I agree with the comment that A and U are easy but it's easy to struggle with remembering the others in the middle of trying to sign or read a sign. I found remembering the letter I was my tallest finger (like the letter) made it easier.
    • 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!☺️
