(Another) BSL newbie Londoner!

Hey folks!

I've always liked the idea of sign languages conceptually, and though I have no friends or family who actually know BSL, it's been a goal for a couple of years to finally get around to learning it. Figured I'd finally use the new year to motivate me to start it up properly, and it's been a lot of fun so far memorising signs and practicing with myself in the mirror 😁

I'm based in London so I figure I'll meet or come across someone who knows BSL eventually, hopefully by then I'll be somewhat proficient and can surprise them with more than just introducing myself!

Feel free to get in touch, maybe then I can chat about it with someone else who's learning instead of me continuing to annoy my flatmate with the latest thing I've learned 🙂

I think it would be great if at some point the London Newbies get together! :D 

I find that I've learnt the signs for the lessons, and can pass the tests, but when I watch videos of other people signing on here, I get lost very quickly - and hopefully meeting people can help!

Definitely! Test each other on the basics, get to practice actually reading signs/looking at faces, and peer pressure each other into not quitting 😛

If it's just us newbies we might end up with some bad practices, but I imagine we'll end up with a pro sooner or later who can show us how it's done (or join some bigger group, London's gotta have plenty)!
