EPQ with Sign Language ^^

Recommended Posts

Hello!! New to this site, but very excited to see that resources for BSL out there are on the rise!

I'm going into college in a week's time, and as part of my A Level choices, I will also be completing an EPQ "Extended Project Qualification", which is worth half an A Level, additionally. It can be on any topic, and I have chosen to conduct a social experiment based understanding BSL and how to communicate with members of the deaf community. I will be using earphones/headphones to block all sound for three days during the school regime, and recording easy signs to encourage other hearing students to communicate in a preferred way with those that struggle with impaired hearing, we have quite a few in our Year group. I think these students should have a right to communicate with others in the way they feel most comfortable with in the same way we do, and to assure them that they are not necessarily at a disadvantage! The aim of the experiment for me is really to open other people's eyes to the difficulties students in particular face when deaf, which others take for granted. It must be so isolating! So, I wanted to do this to encourage a better understanding of our peers and hopefully kickstart learning BSL in my college!! :) Any opinions on this would be much appreciated, especially recordings 😂😂 :D

    • Hey Marla, My favourite sign is TRUST/SURE/TRUE: https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/dictionary/words/true-1.html If your are starting to learn and are intrigued by the BSL world, then I thoroughly recommend using these sites for finding signs: Primary - https://bslsignbank.ucl.ac.uk/ Secondary - https://www.signbsl.com/ And also watching shows on BSL Zone! It's an incredible site where you can watch a whole host of shows that are all in BSL. - https://www.bslzone.co.uk/watch/ Lucy
    • That's awesome, thank you! So then, if you signed MUST while shaking your head and using negative expression, would that mean "not allowed to" or "don't have to"? Thanks! Lucy
    • Thank you Vikki, that is very helpful! Lucy

    • Hello all,  My name is Marla and I am an international student in Bangkok. I started learning Bsl as it allows me to volunteer for more service opportunities. I also have started learning Bsl for a school project. I am very intrigued of the Bsl world and would like to learn as much as I can! Please write below your favorite word in Bsl and why. I think mine is Australia as I think it’s a funny sign.
