Welcome to my Introduction to British Sign Language Series. Over the past year, I have been learning BSL. Learning the basics and being able to start having conversations.
Usually, once I’ve completed some learning if I don’t have it incorporated into my life, it takes a back seat. Some to the point I have forgotten it once I may need it. I didn’t want this to happen with the sign language.
I may not have the need to use sign language in my daily life right now. But I would love to be able to communicate with those who use this method. One day have it within my job role to continue helping people regardless of their communication abilities.
To help me re-cap on what I have learnt and to be able to look back to signs that I don’t use regularly at any point in my life, I decided to make videos. These videos are of me signing what I have learnt. They range from 30 seconds to 2 minutes; depending on the amount within a certain topic.
One of my goals was to share these videos. Being that my blog is now 1 year old and to prove to myself that I can show others what I have accomplished. Building up my courage and confidence in myself and my work. I decided now would be the right time.
Whether learning BSL is something you’ve wanted to do or you just want to watch the videos to see what I have done. Each month, I will be sharing with you a new video.
Let’s begin; here is a video showing the signs that can be done for BSL:
