The society is a sign language and D/deaf awareness group which teaches students basic british sign language. We also run a British Sign Language (BSL) Level 1 course. The course spans the academic year, with evening classes taking place each week of term. Topic areas include: the alphabet, numbers, colours, the calendar, describing yourself, family and pets, food and drink, directions and many more. Students can also choose to take exams, allowing them to achieve the full Level 1 Certificate in BSL.
Come to our Taster session!
You can find us in Teaching and Learning Lecture Theatre 2, 27th September 19:00-21:00 for more information about our society, the course and to learn some signs.
