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 everyone, My name is Katie and I've just started learning BSL! My mum is a pre-school teacher so she has some knowledge of BSL and has taught me a little, but I wanted to learn some more on my own as well!
    • I would love to join this practice group as well, if you still have room for one more person. Unfortunately, I can't email you, as your email address won't become visible to me. Could you email me? My email address is [email protected]
    • When working in Diversity and Inclusion in the field of LGBTI+ people, this video might be of interest for you: Have fun learning this beautiful new language! 🙂
    • And another three ways: 1. Facial expression: use non-understanding facial expression 2. That sign, I don't understand 3. Stop, that sign, what?
    • Hi all, My name is Jochem, and I'm Dutch. I have a British friend, who really benefits from BSL. So, I started to learn British Sign Language. Being fluent in Dutch Sign Language (DSL, or NGT in Dutch) it is both easier and harder to learn BSL. Easier, because my hands, my eyes and my brain are already used to a visual language. And harder, because sometimes I mix both sign languages. I assume after some practice I will most likely end up signing BSL the way I am speaking English: you will
    • hi guys i am new here! 
    • I love languages and work in Diversity and Inclusion work for an LGBT charity, and so wanted to combine my love of languages with being inclusive, which led me to sign language. I hope that I will be able to learn to sign clearly and well and that this skill will aid me in learning how to create inclusive spaces for Deaf and signing people.
