Ann1984 there are a few on you tube, make sure you follow BSL (British Sign Language) or contact them for a downloadable sheet. Your left hand are the vowels from thumb A E I O U. Index and middle finger of right hand laid on palm of left = N. You have an easy name, point to your left thumb A then tap palm with two fingers twice N N and you have A N N. If you have an E on your name point to index finger on left hand - simples πŸ™‚

There are video on YouTube teaching how to sign to songs learning is easier when fun.

Cartoon taught me more Spanish than 5 years of high school French lol

I think sign language should replace religious studies in schools.

When i first learnt sign language..over 20 years ago now...would you believe it was different from place to place..i lived in Preston at the time but if i say went to Newcastle it was a little bit different..even then they were working on making it the same everywhere in the uk..the alphabet stayed the same. Which i taught my daughters and in turn learnt my granddaughter..but i think mr.tumble has to be a great start.
