im doing my level 2 now and would recommend it to anyone. if you're under 19, your local college should offer it for free if they do it. i did my stage 1 with my drama group but am doing level 2 at a local college.

I've always wanted to learn. Was meant to do it this year as it was my gap year but i messed up my a levels so i'm doing them again. I know the alphabet as well as some american signs.

Wouldn't it be easier if there was one universal sign language? I mean i know there is, but its not commonly used is it?

yea i know it - dont use it much - but sometimes do it in class - its quite cool i found very little people in England use it/know how to use it, whereas in e.g. Germany, many people know sign languages in one form or another

it would make as much sense as the whole world speaking the same language. i'd hate for the whole sowrld to speak the same language.
but even if the universal signs were used by all signers, it would change massively from place to place as BSL does regionally.
