Newbie, hello!

Recommended Posts

Hi there! :3

I've been interested in BSL for a while because I think it's just an amazing way to involve everyone no matter how much or little they're able to hear or say and I've been learning little bits here and there for a while now. I decided to really go for it and learn it properly when I started serving a deaf couple in work. I work for Home Bargains, and the couple are in quite regularly. The lady can lip read and she's able to respond so I can understand her, but I'd love to be able to sign things for them to make it a little easier for the both of them to talk to me. I love chatting with customers and getting to know new people, so hopefully this forum will be able to help me out with that. ^-^

I hope you're all having a good weekend.

Hi Loki,

I am currently in the process of studying for my BSL Level 2, so I am more than happy to help you out with anything you are not familiar with or just need help on. Just remember that BSL has its own structure to its language, can be confusing to start but you get to pick up on it. YouTube is always a great way to learn and pick up new signs, although again just remember that there are variations of signs throughout the United Kingdom. Keep signing to the customers when they come in, they appreciate it more than you actually think.

    • Hi Anyone know if there is a practice group or similar somewhere in Great Yarmouth or surrounding areas, most places seem to be around the Norwich area? I am currently doing level 2 and really need more receptive practice
    • Hey peeps Ive just done a first year of BSL to keep up with my 11 year old daughter who has cochlear implants. I found watching the DVD part of the level 1 exam too hard but everyone just said get on with it. It was like teh Emperor's New Clothes scenario. So what happens this week, it is announced that the video was in fact for level 2 students. Thankyou! But bizzarely we still watched it as a group and with some support I got there. But it is all a bit of a muddle if you ask me. Anyone else have this prob?
    • Hi peeps, I'm resitting level 3 sections 320/321 anywhere I can find receptive videos to help me with the speed they sign at??? Or anyone wants the do video chats with me???

    • Hi ! I am Merve, I am a teacher. I have just completed the lessons of Turkish Sign Language, with the help of what I have learnt I can communicate with deaf people.But this is just in Turkish, my wish is to reach more people , I think this will be possible by learing English Sign Language; so I am here.And also I want to teach the words I learn to my students.

    • Hi everyone, I am new to BSL and on level one, has anyone yet done the written assessment and what exactly do they mean when they want interesting facts. as i am struggling a little on what to write. Happy Friday 😀👍
    • Hi Lynda, either is fine. I'm around tomorrow until 3:30, or Sunday any time? I'm in Essex but I've been learning signs from the Internet so I've probably got quite a mixture of dialects haha.
