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! I am Sam and have wanted to learn BSL for years.  Having worked in Health & Social Care for the past 20 years, I now work within Community Development. On a day to day basis I meet lots of different people and with the benefits of volunteering and being more connected within your community filly accepted and promoted more and more often I find myself working alongside people with additional needs who may benefit from my ability to communicate with them using BSL.

    • Hi, Im a Nurse & wanted to learn sign in order to form effective communication & understanding with my Deaf/deaf patients. This would also allow for better relation/trust and not single them out. Hope you guys can support me <3 
    • I decided to try and learn some basic Bsl due to you never knowing who or what you may need it for in the future. I think that everyone deserves and has the right to talk to everyone and anyone regardless of disabilities. I hope to continue doing this and learning more every day
    • My dad taught us children the alphabet and a few basics as we grew up, he worked with a deaf gentleman many years ago, they struggled to communicate well with him so whilst he was still there, my dad borrowed a book from the library, talking hands and taught himself. Bob became a friend on my dads for many years. I owe it to my dad ❤️

    • Hi, I'm new here, my name is Gabbie, I started learning sign language as I thought it was a beautiful language that enabled you to connect with so many people that may usually get ignored because they are unable to hear. so I wanted to learn it to communicate with them, due to also being a psychology and a sport student i know how harmful it can be to a persons mental and physical health if they are unable to communicate. so if you guys have any tips they would be greatly appreciated. many thank
