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 there. I have a deaf son but he dosnt use BSL. I also work in a school with hearing impaired unit. I have had the opportunity to learn level 2 at work, and passed. I feel so proud but since passing I don’t seem to be using it as much as I’d like... it seems difficult to find work in my local area working with deaf adults & using level 2 skills
    • Hello everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Graham. I work as a Business Analyst on a Games which makes video games for kids. A big part of this is working to make products accessible to everyone regardless of impediment. Part of my work has led me to want to learn BSL and Makaton, as I want to be able to communicate effectively with as many people through my job as possible. I taught myself finger-spelling, and have learned basic signs through sessions at work. But, I've signed up for the online "Introduction to BSL" course.
    • Hello, everyone!

      I'm looking for someone to have conversation practice with via Skype ( once a week for something like 1 hour, if possible).

      I recently finished the Online course and now I need to expand my vocabulary and learn how to have an actual conversation.
      If you are interested, please contact me.

      Thank you in advance,
      Rada
    • Hi Beccy I'm new to this too, currently studying BSL Level 1.  I have found an app called Sign BSL - it's like a dictionary of videos.  You type the word you need the sign for and a couple of videos appear giving you the answers.  I imagine it'll be great for conversing with your student.   You could also try looking at the Signature website.  Give them a ring and they will tell you where you can go to learn in your area. Hope this helps, Andrea
    • I need to teach people who wants to learn BSL, but i can't find videos of bsl to international on youtube so i was wondering if you can teach them?
    • I'm currently doing BSL level 2 as my daughter is deaf. For the first time this week we had a lecture on the grammatical and syntax difference between BSL and English and SSE. As many of you will no doubt know, the word order is very different. And confusing. So I now have a suspicion why my daughter at 11 has an English reading age of 5. Why would you teach two contradictory methods at the same time? It just defies logic. So my daughter is being taught English, SSE and BSL. I have now asked a professor of sign linguistics, the NDCS, the local autjhority and various support groups. I have received nothing so fa rthat explains this. Anyone here got any ideas?
