British Sign Language (BSL) - Beginners
This course introduces a beginners guide to British Sign Language. It is aimed to those who have no, or little previous knowledge.

We will concentrate upon learning fingerspelling the alphabet, greetings and how to introduce yourself.

The course also includes colours, numbers, time/money, family, timelines, weather, transport, feelings/emotions and directions, among other things, while improving grammar and fluency.

We will watch videos, look at picture sequence stories and use flash cards, to help our receptive skills. There will be some activity games too.

You will need a pen and a notebook. You don’t need anything else - just a willingness to learn and have some fun.

Please bring your own hand sanitiser and sanitiser wipes to each session.
