Newbie!

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!

    • Hello wonderful people.  This week I am teaching my class how to sign what they ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I know the signs for the meals, eat and foods but how do I sign the sentences? Would it be "breakfast I eat x" then "lunch I eat x" then "dinner I eat x"?

      Thank you!

    • From the age of 5 i have had slight hearing loss that got worse and at 14 + i was barely able to hear. After surgery to correct that at 16 all was well but the drs were very honest and said that by the time i get to 30 my hearing will be back to how it was and will just keep getting worse. My mother, me and my 5 year old daughter have decided to learn together before my hearing get worse.
