Roo

Newbie!

Recommended Posts

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

Mony

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!

    • Hey Marla, My favourite sign is TRUST/SURE/TRUE: https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/true-1.html If your are starting to learn and are intrigued by the BSL world, then I thoroughly recommend using these sites for finding signs: Primary - https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/ Secondary - https://www.signbsl.com/ And also watching shows on BSL Zone! It's an incredible site where you can watch a whole host of shows that are all in BSL. - https://www.bslzone.co.uk/watch/ Lucy
    • That's awesome, thank you! So then, if you signed MUST while shaking your head and using negative expression, would that mean "not allowed to" or "don't have to"? Thanks! Lucy
    • Thank you Vikki, that is very helpful! Lucy

    • Hello all,  My name is Marla and I am an international student in Bangkok. I started learning Bsl as it allows me to volunteer for more service opportunities. I also have started learning Bsl for a school project. I am very intrigued of the Bsl world and would like to learn as much as I can! Please write below your favorite word in Bsl and why. I think mine is Australia as I think it’s a funny sign.
