haven't used BSL since primary school, but have recently had some children who are deaf join a sports club I help with. They have a translator with them but I was wondering if you could help me out with a few words so if they are watching us coach rather than their translator they will still get what we are saying
Forwards (position) and Go Forwards

Well Done (or is congratulations - thumbs up in moving in circles - good for this?)
Thank you in advance! Alex
This year I have completed a level 1 BSL summer school and had a handful of weekly level 2 1-1 lessons. I really need to have more conversation practice. I'm looking for someone of the same if not higher ability than me to Skype on a weekly basis. I would much prefer a female buddy if possible.
Look forward to signing with you!
I started weekly level 2 lessons in July and did a level 1 summer school. I have no links to the deaf and signing community other than my current 1-1 tutor. Would you be interested in skyping once a week for a 'voice off' short conversation? I can try and commit to a weekly half hour slot or better still we could decide on a weekly adhoc basis?
Hi all im Lisa,
I work for a care agency and support a variety of clients, recently we took on a package which are a married couple who are both mute/deaf, she has dementia as well and due to other issues is struggling with her mobility, im trying to learn different signs that help with her care routine, for example I would like to print off and laminate some cards with signs on such as stand, sit, move back etc.
I'm hoping that if the sign is on the card along with the command then carers will begin to pick up bits of the signing which would be a great way of communicating with them.
thanks for reading x
Hi all, my name is Nai and I started learning BSL at the beginning of Aug 2018. I completed the Introduction to BSL through 'British Sign' and am absolutely loving it. Am keen to move forward with the next level and practice with others. x
