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

    • Hi everyone. I'm a total novice here. Just paid for the beginners course, but I have no idea how to get on to it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Hi  I completed a BSL Level 1 a few years ago and am very rusty but would like to do a Level 2 but thought I could use this as a good way of refreshing my skills (if there are any left!).  Would be happy to practice conversations either FaceTime or Skype??   Lesley
    • I am also very antisocial haha! Hope you are finding the learning ok

    • Hello, everyone! I'm Rada.
      I finished the BSL online course quite long ago, but I'm still looking for someone to practice with. I need to expand my vocabulary and learn how to have an actual conversation, so if anyone is interested, please feel free to contact me. Thank you in advance, Rada
       
    • Hiya! Complete newbie here; I've only been learning within the past week or so.  Learning BSL has always been something I've wanted to do, but never made the time for🙄 I've been lucky enough have a friend who has been helping me via FaceTime, although our schedules never seem to match up very well. I've got a dictionary book on order via his recommendation, and watching youtube videos. I had a quick look on the calendar section and noticed that there are a few classes held in different locations... is anyone on this forum from Cambridgeshire area? Looking for someone who would be able to help me out in person with tutoring ☺️   E x
