I'm new! Any tips?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

 

My name is Amy and I am a college lecturer - I am looking to challenge myself and I feel this is an invaluable skill. I'm about to pay for the Level 1 course and start my journey... but before i do does anyone have any tips? 

- How long do you spend on your practice a day? 

- How do you try to remember things you have learnt? 

- what is the best way to practice? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Amy

Welcome!  I am doing Level 1 at college at the moment so am new to BSL and am finding it very interesting.

In answer to your questions:

How long do you spend on your practice a day? 

2 to 4 hours a week on top of college

- How do you try to remember things you have learnt? 

When I get home I write down what I have learn in my language, for example:

NAME ME:

2 finger salute and then point to chest

HOW ARE YOU?

2 hand boob rub into flying thumbs up towards person

- what is the best way to practice? 

With family, in a mirror, on here... you will find your best method.  I think I'm still looking for mine!

Good luck

Monty

    • Hello everyone, I'm Rebecca also known as Becca from Newcastle. I'm new to the BSL world, I was told last June that I needed to have hearing aids in both ears due to slipping through the cracks as a child and no one picked up that I'm partially deaf. Now, according to audiologists they don't know how long or how short I will have the rest of my hearing due to not being on any records so it would be good to make sure that I start learning now in case I ever do lose the rest of my hearing.  I

    • Hi all, My name is Claire and I'm taking the Introduction to BSL course. I learned Makaton growing up to communicate with my brother who was non-verbal but never officially learned BSL. I have followed a lot of people in the Deaf community recently on Youtube and other social media platforms who have inspired me to go back to sign and start again. I've been surprised by how many signs I remember and I would love to become proficient in BSL one day. I've got two coworkers who are also learni
