It's been 17 years since I last did any sign language, and I have forgotten a lot of what I had learnt as I haven't used it on a regular basis. Now I'm on furlough leave I felt that it was an ideal time to brush up and re-learn. Although a lot of the signs so far are familiar, I've found that some are different to the signs I used previously
Hi everyone. I first did a sign language course 17 years ago, one of the reasons was my brother in law is deaf and although he is fantastic at lip reading I wanted to be able to sign with him too. I also taught my baby daughter basic signs so she communicate before she could speak. However, as I didn't use this every day I have forgotten a lot of signs; I thought that now I'm on furloughed leave it would be an idea time to brush up on my sign language and put it to good use! 😀
My name is Afton, I have wanted to learn sign language for a very long time but have never pushed myself to do it.

Looking to connect with people also learning and certainly interested in any projects that would combine the British Sign Language and my work as an Actor.
Hi, how is everyone getting on learning your new skill?
As with a lot of people currently, I’ve found myself with time on my hands. I dont want to waste it so decided I would learn something ... and here I am. X
So I love musical theatre but I can't find a sign for it?
Please could someone tell me if I'm just being stupid and can't find it/what you use instead? Seems like a lot to fingerspell!
