Hey everyone,

My names Roo and I have been eager to learn sign language for such a long time but didn't know where to start, I tried looking for free online courses which I found don't exist. I am still so interested in learning but wanted some advice on the two beginner courses, the introduction and the beginners deal. My question is which one would be more beneficial to start with?? I have previously learnt very very basic signs but didn't want to jump and pay for the wrong course for me. If anyone could give me a little more information on the differences between the both I would very much appreciate it,

Many thanks

Roo :)

Hi Roo

I had the same though but found online courses quite difficult to understand and stick to.  In the end I jumped in and decided to do BSL as an evening course at college and found it so much easier.

Good luck

Hi Vee,

Sorry, it's so difficult to get people here at the same time.  I drop in when I can but never see anyone in the chat areas so I am using resources online to practice.  Life kinda gets in the way....

One good website I have found is http://www.mybslbooks.com

Signed children's story books and it is free!

    • Hi Anyone know if there is a practice group or similar somewhere in Great Yarmouth or surrounding areas, most places seem to be around the Norwich area? I am currently doing level 2 and really need more receptive practice
    • Hey peeps Ive just done a first year of BSL to keep up with my 11 year old daughter who has cochlear implants. I found watching the DVD part of the level 1 exam too hard but everyone just said get on with it. It was like teh Emperor's New Clothes scenario. So what happens this week, it is announced that the video was in fact for level 2 students. Thankyou! But bizzarely we still watched it as a group and with some support I got there. But it is all a bit of a muddle if you ask me. Anyone else have this prob?
    • Hi peeps, I'm resitting level 3 sections 320/321 anywhere I can find receptive videos to help me with the speed they sign at??? Or anyone wants the do video chats with me???

    • Hi ! I am Merve, I am a teacher. I have just completed the lessons of Turkish Sign Language, with the help of what I have learnt I can communicate with deaf people.But this is just in Turkish, my wish is to reach more people , I think this will be possible by learing English Sign Language; so I am here.And also I want to teach the words I learn to my students.

    • Hi everyone, I am new to BSL and on level one, has anyone yet done the written assessment and what exactly do they mean when they want interesting facts. as i am struggling a little on what to write. Happy Friday 😀👍
    • Hi Lynda, either is fine. I'm around tomorrow until 3:30, or Sunday any time? I'm in Essex but I've been learning signs from the Internet so I've probably got quite a mixture of dialects haha.
