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

    • Hi  I’m currently working in a primary school in Wales. There has been suggestions that I might be working with a 6 year old with a cochlear implant from September. Im here to improve my BSL to help them achieve the best they can 
    • That's great!  I'm taking level 2 ISL(Irish) right now.  Got a book of Bible Stories in English and Braille I'm working through too. I wish you the best of luck!
    • Hey, i'm new here. I'm coming to the end of my level 1 course now ready to start level 2. I am aiming to go all the way to persue my drea career as an interpretor. I am hoping to find some people here that would like to practice, so that our signing can get to be the est it can be!
    • It's a bit late to reply, though I think Let's Sign BSL Dictionary is one of the more impressive sign dictionaries.  ASL has "The Gallaudet Children’s Dictionary of American Sign Language" and the ISL(Irish) dictionary includes the first page with the alphabet, the explains each further sign with the alphabet introduced on the first page.  A good dictionary can be a good book I think. I only just noticed no one had answered your question, so I thought I might.
    • Hi all, hoping that you are really well. I undertook a BSL course around 25 years ago. I now have a little boy who requires us to sign to help him with his day to day life. It's surprising how much is coming back to me and how much I enjoy it!. Hoping that today is a good day for you :) 
    • It's great that you're going BSL, I'm sure you'll find friends with it. I haven't had any real conversations in sign language, I only picked ISL because it looked fun.  I do hope to finish the last class in the next month.  Thank you for the encouragement. I actually find Braille more testable since those I know aren't too interested in sign.  Braille is quite fun now with the different English and universal ones to learn, grade 1, 2, 3, UEB, math, and music.  It's nice to read dual te
