Dear Learner,
Welcome to First Steps British Sign Language, Step Three. This “First Steps” series consists of 3 applications, step 1, step 2 and 3. Together they form the vocabulary needed for a good level one standard of BSL, and will enable you to communicate with a native BSL user on a range of simple everyday topics such as Family, Transport, the weather, Time etc.

Days of the week, months and time lines
Direction signs
Work and hobby signs
Things in the home and garden
Pets and animals
Emotions and feeling signs
3 fingespelling tests
3 short stories

The series is designed for complete beginners and false beginners. Whether you have recently joined a class, are thinking about doing so, would like to refresh your signing skills or wish to learn independently, these apps will take you through all the level one basic material.

In each section you will learn new vocabulary and then see a conversation incorporating it and/or someone signing information about themselves using vocab from the section.

Look out for our other apps in the app store and others that will be coming soon.

This man is fantastic!

I have paid quite a lot of money for other BSL resources and none of them compete with Twinklefinger's apps. The lady who is on the receptive skills app is brilliant too. Good value on so many levels...and humour too! Thx Twinklefinger's and friends-Exx

Great for BSL level 1

These apps are a great resource for preparation for BSL Level 1 exams. I watch a few of these videos every night and it's so helpful. Lots of good vocabulary, conversations and examples.
