    So I want to learn a new language. Instead of going the traditional way and learning something like French / Spanish, I want to learn BSL (British Sign Language). Has anyone got any tips for starting out? (By the way I'm not deaf and nor are any of my family). I wanted to do this after watching Noel on Casualty :P

    You can take BSL levels at local adult education centres. The problem is practising your skills. Unless you have access to other signers, your skills quickly disappear. I tool levels 1 and 2, but, a couple of years on, I can't remember much. Unless you work with the deaf, or have signer in the family, don't bother. It's good fun, but is a language that needs regular practise to master.
