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! My name is Casey. I want to learn more BSL. (ASL translation: I use ASL as my primary language but now I want to learn BSL) Thank you!

      I would appreciate if anyone would be willing to practice with me and correct my BSL signs.
    • Hey everyone!
      My name is Michelle and I am here to get to know some BSL users! I would love to get to know someone around my own age (23) to practice with, or to teach me.
      I have been learning on my own for some time now and I am very much still a beginner, but I am evolving, and I love the language and the culture.

      I am from Denmark and I am not just looking to practice, I am looking to make friends in the deaf community. Tell me about everything! The good, the bad..the fun!. I myself have not formally been to any BSL classes, but I joined in on some beginner lessons in Oxford last year, and I had a somewhat understandable conversation on BSL with the teacher.

      So please message me if you think it could be fun to learn me a thing or two about your life - or your own learning experience (or If you, you know, love cats, Harry Potter, Backpacking and Netflix...really get a hold of me! haha)
