Hey Everybody 

I am new to learning BSL, just finished Assessment 3 and so far I am really enjoying it. People I know have always commented on how much I gesticulate with my hands and that I should try learning Sign language. I have partial hearing loss in one of my ears, that has happened over a period of time and during this pandemic with everyone wearing masks it occurred to me just how much I rely on lip reading. This motivated me to learn sign language and so here I am. Its nice to have a forum on here to converse with others as I don't know anyone else who has learnt BSL.

    • My name is Sabina and I have been learning to sign for just under a year. I've always been interested in sign language as I've always thought its such a unique, beautiful way to communicate between people. I would currently say that my signing level is probably around mid level 1. Its been a bit hard to improve my signing skills as I can't drive and my closest learning centre can't be accessed without a car. However, I would love to improve my signing skills and would love to practice with peopl
    • Hi, my name's Kelly, and I completed BSL Level 1 before Christmas and am now partway through Level 2. I first learnt some sign language about 20 years ago (BSL Level 1 at evening classes at college), but then life got in the way so it's taken me a while to start again! I love how expressive BSL is, and am hoping to use it for a job in the future. The problem I have at the minute is that I'm learning online, because my nearest centre to learn in person is 40 miles away, so I have an online t
