Hiya, I'm studying level one and have been given some videos to interpret to test my knowledge, however, I really don't understand some of the signs and can't find them in my training. I wondered if anyone could shed any light on them please. I've written out the rest of the sentence, as I understand it, for context and described the signs I don't understand in brackets.

1. Monday my work starts what time? 8. Friday I work (flat hand moves across face)

2. Summer I love why? (fist in circles in front of mouth) day

3. Easter when? spring - march, april (two fingers brush from flat palm to fingers twice)

4. Saturday I eat (both hands in fists, like they're holding frying pan handles) - does it just mean a fry up?

 

Thank you in advance for any light you can shine on these, it's hard to search for what BSL signs mean, it's not like learning French where you can just Google, "what does escargot mean?"

Hello JoJo,

The only help I can offer you is No. 2 Summer I love why? I think the fist circles the mouth (also seen this with a palm circing the mouth is the sign for  WARM.

    • I'm not deaf or hard of hearing, but I'm a secondary school teacher with a number of children with varying hearing difficulties, and a father who wears hearing aids. I figure that as well as being fascinating to learn (I love learning new things), it's a skill that could be really beneficial to me too.
