Even though I have been learning BSL (British Sign Language) for a few months now, I was thinking about ways to make myself accountable.
It’s so easy to trail off your latest interests, passions and hobbies after the initial excitements. It’s no surprise that many people give up their New Year resolutions in February every single year.
Thankfully for me, I have continued to keep learning BSL but in order to keep myself accountable and also document my progress, I have decided to start ‘My BSL Journey’, which will document my journey as I learn British Sign Language.
Now I should warn you that I’m still just a beginner. I’ve been learning my using a combination of an online tutor, Facebook groups, online courses and watching BSL Zone.
But it doesn’t matter how much you learn, like anything, if you don’t practice, you will never learn nor get better.
And that’s why I decided to bare all in my first video in BSL (or perhaps SSE, Sign-Supported English, as I’m not following the correct grammar that exists within BSL).
So be kind.
Watch the videos below of my first videos in British Sign Language (which are also captioned).
