Hello!

I've been trying to learn BSL for a little while now and it made me realise just how many people don't know about it, it's quite sad really.

At times, I've thought several times that you could make estimated guesses as to what certain words mean without knowing BSL... what do you reckon? :beard:

Let's try to guess together... 10 questions, 10 minutes per question... and remember, no Googling!

You've got the 'sound' of the word and it does begin with F, but this one isn't what you might think it is! It's quite hard
