I've done a bit of research into various level 1 courses and I'm finding it all very confusing, plus the cost differences are amazing.
What is the best way for a complete beginner to learn BSL? Is it ok to do the online level 1 then go onto level 2 in a class, or is it better to do the class from level 1 so one gets the hand forms correct?
I'm thinking of doing a taster session first and see how I get on, then do level 1, or is it possible to skip that level and go into level 2 if you know the hand forms?
I've seen courses at Universities (Kings is £310 each part, with level 1 divided into 3 parts and as such it's a costly £930 for the complete course), compared to the online BSL course of £20. Then the local adult education does something called the prelevel 1s and 2s at £126 and £158.
Please help, I'm on a minimum wage so can't afford the huge cost of some of these course. If I like the BSl I hope to take it further through the courses, so a long journey (I presume to level 6).
This is my first post in the forum so please be gentle.
I'm a mature student with an interest in learning BSL from level 1 upwards. I'm finding all the courses really confusing, so I'm hoping coming here will help.
I have lots of questions, so I better have a look see where to put them al,l before making this post too long.
Nice to meet you all
I was really hoping someone with more knowledge would answer this, expect you've done this by now, but anyway here's what I think (please correct me anyone?!)
So the question in English would be
'What did you have for breakfast?' ( did implies 'this morning') or;
'What do you have for breakfast?' (do implies 'usually')
But there are no tenses in BSL, so you give the timeframe first:
'This morning [or usually] breakfast you eat what?'
I'm fairly sure of that part, the answer, less certain,
'This morning, Breakfast I toast eat' - at least I think it's that order, not 'eat toast', because the example of sentence order I often see is 'the cat tree climbs': Subject; object; verb - if you were drawing a picture you wouldn't draw the cat climbing, before giving it a tree to climb.

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"?
