I'm New.

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My name is Amy and I'm new to BSL. I have no real knowledge of how to sign but I am pushing to learn as quickly as possible.

Due to my previous career working in a very loud environment for HM Armed Forces I have got acute hearing loss in my left ear which is accompanied by persistent unilateral tinnitus on the same side. This has resulted in me getting very frequent Audio and Photo sensitive migraines. I have been told by the doctors that my hearing will only keep deteriorating, and is has even within the last 6 months. I still have good hearing with my right ear, however I am extremely worried about losing it too and so I have decided to learn BSL.

Even with the hearing I have, I find I get very overwhelmed by noise, especially multiple sources, which leaves me disoriented..

Thats a little about me! 

Amy

    • 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?
