Zipwire

Recommended Posts

I work at a high ropes course and have started learning sign to help interact with customers who sign

A while ago I was at work and about to help some customers go down the zipwire there was a man who help his hand to represent a person like in the signs for falling for example and moved it across Infront of him at a slight angle mimicking the zipwires decent.

I was wondering if this was an actual sign or he was trying to explain what a zipwire was/made their own sign?

I would assume such an obscure word that lots of people don't know the English word for would not have a sign and would have to be spelt out

Just wondering if anyone knows

    • Hi Carole   I'm really sorry, but I'm not sure myself, I was hoping you would have been able to tell me 🤣.  Not a good start for the pair of us.  I'll try and have a look to see if I can find any information about it.  Donna
    • Hi Donna   Thank you so much for responding to my post. I would be delighted to practice with you. Can you let me know how to go about this please. Look forward to hearing from you. Carolex
    • Hiya, I've also included this in my intro post but I'm an early years practitioner who has experience working with deaf children and looking to expand my knowledge.
    • Hiya I'm Lana and I've worked 1:1 with a school aged deaf child during my career as an early years practitioner. I'm now working with a baby who is deaf and looking to expand my knowledge even further so they get the best start in life possible.

    • Hi everyone   I have just started to learn BSL and just over half way through the course. I am really enjoying it and would love to practice with a buddy. I can be quite flexible in days of the week and time. So, if anyone here is ambitious enough or looking for a buddy, I hope you will consider me. Thanks, Carole.
    • Hi, I am new to BSL and so pleased I made this decision to to learn this language. I work for myself using different kind of signs and imagery, and, whereby I do public and group speaking.  I hope, if I am good enough, to use it within my workplace where people many enjoy my service and benefit from it. I am just over half way through the course. I look forward to learning from other people's knowledge and experiences. best wishes, Carole.
