Hi everyone!

I am fairly new to learning BSL, I have been taking evening classes for about 4 months now.

I can fingerspell, talk about directions, describe peoples looks and clothes, and talk about my family (as well as other bits which I have probably forgotten!)

I am in no way super confident when talking about these topics, but would love to have someone to practice with and just generally have a fun conversation and make some new BSL friends. I would love to have a video chat with either someone learning BSL or deaf or HOH.

Look forward to hearing back from you guys and joining the community! :)

Hi,

I have just completed a level one BSL course. I am English but I'm currently living in Africa, so would love someone to Skype with! I have a couple of children, and I'm two hours ahead of the UK so evenings between 6pm and 8pm BST work well for me. My Skype name is HopeNatalya.

Thanks,

Hope

    • Hi everyone! My name is Hira and I am 19 years old. I am studying Speech and Language Therapy at University and had my first placement last December. Through volunteering and my placement, I have realised how important it is to know the basics of signing in order to communicate with others. For my career, I want to learn BSL so I can sign certain topics with children who have language difficulties during therapy sessions etc. I also love developing skills and although BSL seems really tricky as
    • I have been interested and fascinated by the Deaf community for a while now. Also, I hate the idea that I wouldn't be able to make friends due to differences in language/ability. I want everyone to feel included and comfortable around me regardless of differences. This is why I am learning BSL. 
    • *sighs nervously and waves hand* hello I am Akira. I have been drawn to the Deaf community for a while and decided to act upon it today and no I do not know any Deaf people. I am interested in making friends here though as I am a beginner. hope to hear from you all soon!! *waves bye, excitedly*
    • Hi Myself and my daughter, Kiera (12) decided to begin to learn British Sign Language. It is helpful that we are both learning together as we can continually practice, which we find to be very beneficial to remembering the signs. We would find it very rewarding to be able to speak to other people using sign language in the future. Hayley and Kiera 🙂
    • Hi all: My name is Imogen.  I am a linguist by education and profession.  I learnt Spanish in South America but went through the British Education System with French.  I have spent most of my career as an MFL teacher specialising in all things Latin America and I speak French and Spanish fluently.  Spanish is my strongest foreign language.  I am now mostly a teacher of English for Academic Purposes and ESP English for Specific Purposes to post graduates wanting to study in this country.  I
    • Hi all, I am brushing up on my BSL. I completed the level 1 BSL while at university many many years ago but I failed the exam! Since having children I did tiny talk (baby sign) which made a lot of it come back (although there are some different signs) I remember how much I enjoyed it and have decided to try and again!
    • hello everyone,   I am an educator learning BSL as part of a development into inclusion for deaf students in mainstream education. I have a interest in learning Film making/Media BSL as that is the course level that I teach :) so any suggestions or hints or tips are greatly appreciated :)
