The adventures of Jack Jack

The adventures of a first time Mummy and my son Jack.

Learning BSL with Flash sticks – a month on

Regular readers will have read our post last month about the fantastic Flash stick post it notes (which you can read here), they have revolutionized the way we can learn a new language.

Jack and I have been learning British sign language for the past month and I am very pleased to say it is incredibly easy to pick up and incorporate into our daily life. From signing shop and our shopping list to my two year old son signing ‘Mummy I love you’, a very proud moment for me but lost on Daddy who has not joined us on our language learning journey.

Flash sticks have allowed my nearly three year old son and I to learn our own secret language within our monolingual family, and enjoy an even closer mother and son relationship than before, always a plus in my book.

I must admit when I first opened my pack of Flash stick post it notes and placed them around the house it was a little daunting, especially as I would be teaching Jack to sign. By using signs through the day Jack has learnt over ten different signs, however at the moment Jack says what he is signing while doing it so the next step will be to help him sign without explaining.

If like me you have bad memories of learning a language at school, reciting the words in a mindless, dull drone then Flash sticks are for you.There so simple even my three year old can do it.

 Till next time, ‘signing’ out 😉
