BSL Sentence Structure

Recommended Posts

I’ve started learning BSL and I’m sort of ‘translating’ songs to practice sentence structure. Could someone help me do this? A couple of lines would be fine, I’m just having a bit of a mental block and can’t seem to do it!

My heart is telling me the telly isn't telling me anything
I need but it needs to keep selling me
Besides celebrities lacking in integrity
Holding up the status quo instead of showing the kids
That they matter, who are they gonna batter next?
Just keep holding their necks and keep selling them sex
It’s better if we keep them perplexed
It's better if we make them want the opposite sex
And disenfranchised young criminal minds
In a car park beside where your nan resides
Are not slow, they've just never been shown
That you should be

 

thank you so much!!

BSL doesn't translate word for word. You need the meanings. What's the song trying to say?

You can try this...I'm still a beginner. Please correct or add or redo as I am only using signs I know.

My heart say TV sell nothing I need/want,

But TV sell me lives of famous people who lie, pretend life is good (rich, happy, powerful),

Better should teach kids, kids (you, they, your) important, who lie to (fight with) next...

 

All the best

    • Hi Everyone, my name is Meagan. I am learning BSL because I would like a career in healthcare and I thought that it would be useful to be able to communicate in as many forms as I can learn. Being able to communicate with a patient who uses BSL directly could make them feel more comfortable in my care and make the whole process a lot easier.  
    • @VanessaH @Shellie @Faith Odi @Jeetus Maximus Sohpal @Mariam Hey Everyone! Thank you all for your patience.  This weeks meeting has been rescheduled to Sunday 2pm. As things begin to normalise work starting up again, I will need to set future meetings in accordance to such changes. But please do contact any other people within this thread for one to one sessions on days outside the BSL meetings. See you Sunday! Usaid Tariq is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

    • Yasmin, and I'm a Singaporean studying in London.  I've always had an interest in sign language and was teaching myself ASL previously. But when I met my partner in the UK, I decided to pick up BSL instead in order to equip myself with more varied methods of communicating with him, since he is Deaf himself. He doesn't use BSL often, preferring to lip read, but I still find it tricky to communicate with him when he doesn't have his coclear implant in, especially in the mornings when we've ju
