You may have noticed that the site has been offline for a few days and now it’s back, with a new theme.
Unfortunately the reason for this, is that the theme I had installed before was prone to malicious attacks and my site was brought down for a few days.
I’m glad to say we’re all back up and running with a copy of all the blogs and comments back online. However I haven’t had the chance to sit down and look for a new theme properly, so this one is here temporarily until I find something else I like!
In the mean time, check back over the coming weeks and I’ll try and get some more BSL content on here.
Unfortunately it looks as though my Level Three BSL qualification is going to have to wait, as it seems there wasn’t enough uptake on the course I was enrolled in. I’m not too down about it, but I am going to try and get to more BSL events and keep up my practice until another [...]
So this week I’ve been working in a computer shop in Blackpool, covering for a member of staff who is away on holiday. When I first went to the shop I noticed a sign for foundation BSL courses on the till, being run by Fylde Coast BSL. When I asked who put the poster up, [...]
I’ve been a huge fan of singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran since seeing his SB.TV debut on YouTube over a year ago and having seen him live twice this year I can’t proclaim his brilliance much more than I already do. However, I was recently blown away by the video for his next single, coming out in [...]
So the last you heard I was about to appeal my level two, 203 exam results, which was my conversation about food and drink a while back. Thankfully, I recieved a call last week to say that the decision had been made and my appeal was successful, meaning I only needed to pass 202 (the [...]
So. I failed. I received a phone call last week to let me know that I didn’t pass my 203 BSL exam, which was the conversation on Food & Drink. I was completely shocked when I found out, as I’d practiced as much as I could, wasn’t nervous or anxious about the exam before hand and felt [...]
So, I took the last of my level two exams on Monday night. A 3-4 minute presentation on one of three topics from your chosen theme (my theme was Travel & Holidays and my topic was “Being Lost”). I have to say, I found the entire experience completely horrific! I was suddenly extremely nervous when I [...]
So I took my second Level Two BSL exam last night, the topic was Food and Drink (others were Travel & Holidays or Shoppping & Spending) and the theme for my exam, which consists of a 6-7 minute conversation in BSL with my tutor, was “Trying new food and drink”. There were 2 other themes [...]
Just a quick update on my previous blog, to say that I passed 201 with 12/12! I’m really proud of myself for doing so well, and want to congratulate my other class mates who passed with me. Now to prepare for 202 and 203! On a separate note, I went to Blackburn on Friday afternoon, navigated their [...]
So once again, let me apologise for neglecting the blog for so long, but study seems to take up a disproportionate amount of my time of late, hopefully it’s all worth it! So a few things that I’ve recently thought “I’ll blog about that” and never got around to include the following; The child in [...]
