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 wonderful people.  This week I am teaching my class how to sign what they ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I know the signs for the meals, eat and foods but how do I sign the sentences? Would it be "breakfast I eat x" then "lunch I eat x" then "dinner I eat x"?

      Thank you!

    • From the age of 5 i have had slight hearing loss that got worse and at 14 + i was barely able to hear. After surgery to correct that at 16 all was well but the drs were very honest and said that by the time i get to 30 my hearing will be back to how it was and will just keep getting worse. My mother, me and my 5 year old daughter have decided to learn together before my hearing get worse.  
    • Hi Aiden, messaged you my facetime details, hope it came through OK
