Hello everybody

Recommended Posts

I am new to this page and BSL. I started an online course a while back but life interupted and I stopped studying. I am a teaching assitant and just recently finished my Level 2 course of that. After all the assignments and work I had to do for that I realised I enjoyed that. I didn't know what I could learn next when two days ago in the school I work we had visitors one of them was a pupil with her interpreteur. And that's when I remembered my online BSL course.

I am originally from Germany and a distant cousin (possibly a third I find the system of cousins confusing ;)) is Deaf and speaks German Sign Language, but prefers when with hearing people to lip read. I was always facinated when I watched him sign with others but I never thought I might should learn it. It has been a while that I saw him, we email regular.
I am thirty, have a dog and a cat and are friendly and open towards everyone. Hopefully once I can sign more again I hope I can find someone to have coffees and sign. I am in Bridgend, Wales and would love to meet new people.

    • Hi Joanne, Yes it will, focus on technique and accuracy and speed will naturally come with time
    • Hi everyone, I am currently doing level 2, working on my presentation.  Loving signing but not the fastest and finding the flow difficult, suppose it will come with practice. 
    • I forgot to mention, I am hoping to learn London BSL.  I know some signs tend to vary by area, so hoping to learn the signs which are most prominent around London. Thank you~~
    • Hello, A bit about me: I'm 27. I have been studying BSL on my own for just under two months. My vocabulary is about 325 words + the alphabet. I would love to take a public class to further my skills (especially grammar!), but here's the catch: I live in japan!  So I'm looking for someone who has advanced level BSL to meet with once a week over Skype for lessons.  I am more than happy to pay for the private tutoring.  Would anyone here be interested in this, or know of a resource to find an online tutor?  Japan and UK timezones match up so that we could meet in the UK-morning/Japan-evening.   Thanks!
    • You're right, I somehow got confused with which fingers were up. I think the final sign is actually ASL for the number 9.
    • @Ferkel I don't understand your text, a little. I don't look for a sign 'T-shirt' in ASL, but meaning sings ON my T-shirt. I put the photo. Xoxo, Merry
    • Thanks for answer. Unfortunatly I don't have any context, It's just a T-shirt I bought in the usualy shop center. But I would like to know what my shirt is saying to the world. And the last sign is not D, I think I can use word 'opposed', look at the picture. It's D.     Xoxo, Mery
