Signing Challenge


If you haven’t guessed already, I love a good challenge. So I’ve set myself a new one for the year ahead.

Some time ago and I cannot remember why, my colleague H and I got talking about sign language and how we wanted to learn it, or at least some basics. So just before the Christmas break I said to her, let’s learn a new phrase or word each week during 2019 and see how that goes.

Doing something together always helps and if I’ve got to learn something to show her then I think that will really help me focus on it.

So here we go. I’ve got my BSL (British Sign Language) app and my plan is to post a video of my new sign on Instagram and share it here, building up a collection of phrases. Who knows, it might even inspire you to have a go.

(By the way, any hints or tips are welcome! Have a feeling I may need help with this one!)
