Hello!

 

My name is Ellie.  I have wanted to learn sign language for a long time.  I have been deaf in one ear most of my life and have left it far too long.  I was inspired to start learning during lockdown and sadly didn't get very far.  Recently I am inspired by Rose on Strictly to get on with it.  It is a beautiful language and so useful.  I work in the Arts with children who struggle to communicate and I feel passionately that it would really help everyone.

    • Sorry I didn't look at the site until late on Friday. Can we try to agree some time on Sunday or perhaps one evening next week. I presume we can both "enter" a Beginners Chat Room at an agreed day and time and see how we get on.
    • +Sorry the above message should read....pulling it slowly across mouth to the RIGHT side not left.
    • I also do not know the chat room system.  It would be great meeting virtually to practice, I am usually free on Fridays or Sundays but can do some evenings
    • I am a primary school teacher and last year I had a child start in my class who was deaf and starting on his BSL journey. My TA and I signed up over 30 people in our school to learn BSL to support him, his brother and any future children attending our school.
    • I am fairly new to BSL, although I have known the alphabet for almost my whole life.  I have always wanted to learn to sign for conversation and communication but have never got around to it.  It's a hot topic, quite rightly, at the moment and an interaction (me alphabetically spelling out a directive to a BSL using customer in my job today) have spurred me on to do it.   So here I am!  i look forward to reading your comments and being a part of this community.
    • Hi Claudette, I have also recently started learning BSL online. Having to go over and over the signs and "grammar" but it is slowly sinking in. Like you, I don't have anyone to practice with and when ever I have looked at the Chat Room there never seems to be anyone there (I am not sure I know how the system works to be honest). I would be game to try meeting virtually to practice.
