My story for learning Bsl

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I have only recently (August 2016) found out I needed hearing aids I am Hoh I can hear slightly without my aids.

since January 2017 I have been trying to get into a deaf social group or speaking with other  deaf people face to face. I have looked within my local area and I have realised that unless you are under 16 or older than 50 you have no groups or anything to speak with people who may also have issues with hearing.

This has pushed me to learn BSL I want to make sure people who are Deaf Hoh or need to sign to communicate are not isolated and I am even looking into volunteers for signing interpreters I know I will need at least basic level 1 to do anything with the public but for now I'm just learning.

I have just learned my alphabet and I'm currently doing my numbers 1-20 my husband again has been a great help I have only been signing 6days and I think I am doing well 

anyway this is my story and I hope it helps and inspired others to either learn or carry on using Sign language.

 

I will post one picture of my hands me signing the letter S it's the only image I have of me signing

Hi there,

I want to learn it because whenever I see someone who can't speak and struggling to make understand his/her views but unable to express so there I find that if I can help him, it will be so proud moment for me that I can understand him and can translate his/her views to the others.

    • Hello. I just refreshed my BSL Level 1 with an online course which was useful. Sorry not close enough to meet but am available to do video chat if you're interested. Thanks, Rob W.
    • Hello all. I have used BSL off and on over many years and am really only a beginner. However, I really want to commit to learning BSL and am keen to practise with someone. I am a qualified teacher (senior leader) and have used Makaton/SSE before but wish to move to a school with high number of D/deaf children. I am happy for anyone to contact me who wants to practise or who has any advice for me. Thanks, Rob W.

    • Hi everyone, I'm staring a level 1 BSL course at the end of April. Bit pre-emptive maybe, but I thought I'd sign up and maybe get a head start and introduce myself. My name's Liam, I have no previous experience with signing, but I'm training part time for the next few years to become a counsellor/therapist so I'm also looking to learn as much BSL and possibly some Makaton with the aim of becoming as inclusive a therapist as possible.
    • As weird as it sounds, I totally get this. I'm not learning BSL for D&D purposes, but one of my best friends who I play with is pretty good at it. I thought it'd make an excellent version of Thieves Cant or even the Drow Hand Signal Language (which is, essentially, very similar to BSL!). I'd definitely considered using it in a character too :D
    • Hey everyone... I'm just starting to learn BSL with an online course. I am very slow and I'm looking for practice partners in and around Liverpool. Prefer live practice but video chat also welcome. I'm hearing
      I have intermediate ASL so it's a little confusing but I'm making some progress...  Thanks and hope to hear from you soon
    • Hi, Could anyone make any suggestions of any tongue twisters/finger tumblers that work in bsl? I work in school and we are running an international mother language day, and each workshop will be teaching a tongue twister in their home language. I will be running the signing workshop, but I'm afraid my knowledge doesn't run that far. All I can find online is one example from asl.   Any help very gratefully received, thanks
