Looking for an online BSL tutor once a week

Recommended Posts

Hello,

A bit about me: I'm 27. I have been studying BSL on my own for just under two months. My vocabulary is about 325 words + the alphabet. I would love to take a public class to further my skills (especially grammar!), but here's the catch: I live in japan! O.o

So I'm looking for someone who has advanced level BSL to meet with once a week over Skype for lessons.  I am more than happy to pay for the private tutoring. 

Would anyone here be interested in this, or know of a resource to find an online tutor?  Japan and UK timezones match up so that we could meet in the UK-morning/Japan-evening. 

:) Thanks!

I forgot to mention, I am hoping to learn London BSL.  I know some signs tend to vary by area, so hoping to learn the signs which are most prominent around London. Thank you~~

Hello to Japan. Quite interesting that you study Bsl in Japan; why not Japanese Sign Language?
I am looking for Skye sessions, too. I have been attending an Introduction Course in Edinburgh and therefore we mainly learn Scottish signs. I want to continue with Level 1 in August and eventually L2 in Feb 2020, but it's very expensive :o

Have a look on Youtube at 'BSL learning with Mel' - she's a BSL tutor from the south-east and as well as doing the videos she says she does 1-to-1 Skype Tuition. Her videos are great.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Hira and I am 19 years old. I am studying Speech and Language Therapy at University and had my first placement last December. Through volunteering and my placement, I have realised how important it is to know the basics of signing in order to communicate with others. For my career, I want to learn BSL so I can sign certain topics with children who have language difficulties during therapy sessions etc. I also love developing skills and although BSL seems really tricky as
    • I have been interested and fascinated by the Deaf community for a while now. Also, I hate the idea that I wouldn't be able to make friends due to differences in language/ability. I want everyone to feel included and comfortable around me regardless of differences. This is why I am learning BSL. 
    • *sighs nervously and waves hand* hello I am Akira. I have been drawn to the Deaf community for a while and decided to act upon it today and no I do not know any Deaf people.

    • Hi Myself and my daughter, Kiera (12) decided to begin to learn British Sign Language. It is helpful that we are both learning together as we can continually practice, which we find to be very beneficial to remembering the signs. We would find it very rewarding to be able to speak to other people using sign language in the future. Hayley and Kiera 🙂

    • Hi all, I am brushing up on my BSL. I completed the level 1 BSL while at university many many years ago but I failed the exam! Since having children I did tiny talk (baby sign) which made a lot of it come back (although there are some different signs) I remember how much I enjoyed it and have decided to try and again!
    • hello everyone,   I am an educator learning BSL as part of a development into inclusion for deaf students in mainstream education. I have a interest in learning Film making/Media BSL as that is the course level that I teach :) so any suggestions or hints or tips are greatly appreciated :)
