    Course Details

    What will the course involve?

    Our BSL Levels courses are fully accredited by the institure of British Sign Language (iBSL). In your class you will learn with a fully qualified and experienced deaf BSL Teacher.

    There are 3 modules at Level 1:

    Module 1:  Receptive Skills to BSL: encompasses learning how to be able to extract simple ideas and information using BSL

    Module 2:  Descriptive Skills in BSL: explores expressing simple statements connected with work & social situations; expressing everyday emotions; using set phrases and giving a simple narration of events.

    Module 3:  Conversational Skills in BSL: enables you to take part in and follow simple conversation and to be able to understand and make requests in BSL

    Students are recommended that they meet up with their peers to practise their signing skills and they visit deaf clubs to meet other deaf people to improve their signing and confidence.  This is a very popular course - places are allocated in order of application.
