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 (and now you!) 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.
The phrase in each video is written in block caps at the start of the caption. They are all embedded from instagram so if they aren’t working just pop over to https://www.instagram.com/happybarnet/
(By the way, any hints or tips are welcome! Have a feeling I may need help with this one!)
