The society is a sign language group which teaches students basic sign language. We usually run a British Sign Language (BSL) Level 1 course. The course is one year long, with evening classes taking place each week of term. Topic areas include: the alphabet, numbers, colours, the calendar, describing yourself and your family, jobs, directions and many more. Students can also choose to take exams required to achieve the Level 1 Award in BSL.
How does our society work?
Membership is £5 - this allows members to attend our social events, plus you get access to our trips, charity fundraisers, volunteering opportunities and much more.
If you're not a member yet but want to give it a go, get in touch with us on our socials or email so you can have a taster.
BSL Level 1 course is £120 (2021 price)
