This short course is designed for those with little or no previous experience of using British Sign Language. Sessions are delivered at a comfortable pace within a supportive environment.
You will learn the art of finger spelling to sign numbers and letters and then quickly progress onto using hand shapes to introduce yourself, make personal greetings and ask basic questions. The course will give you the skills and confidence to use sign language to communicate on a number of topics: employment, hobbies, transport, etc.
Included, is a session on deaf awareness that helps learners gain a greater insight and understanding of hearing impairment.
Due to current guidelines governing social distancing, courses may need to be delivered via a combination of online tutorials and classroom based activities.
