Hi Olivia,

The best way to start to learn BSL is to learn the Alphabet (finger spell). Once you mastered that move onto the simple signs, hello, goodbye, how are you etc.. Just pick it up from there. There is lots of free videos on YouTube to help you along too. Although please do remember that each part of the United Kingdom may or may not have a different sign from somewhere 20 miles down the road, it's just like us having 'dialect' in English. If you need any help in getting started, don't hesitate to ask

    • 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"?

      Thank you!

    • From the age of 5 i have had slight hearing loss that got worse and at 14 + i was barely able to hear. After surgery to correct that at 16 all was well but the drs were very honest and said that by the time i get to 30 my hearing will be back to how it was and will just keep getting worse. My mother, me and my 5 year old daughter have decided to learn together before my hearing get worse.  
    • Hi Aiden, messaged you my facetime details, hope it came through OK
