What is the course about?

This course is designed to enable you to communicate with Deaf people in British Sign Language at level 2 standard within a range of everyday topics. The course leads to the Level 2 Certificate in BSL, accredited by the Signature awarding body. The qualification comprises three units: receptive, productive and conversational skills.

You will have the opportunity to undertake the examinations for these three units within the course.

What will we cover?

You will learn receptive, productive and conversational skills at level 2 in the following topic areas:
- everyday conversation
- daily social / work / school routines
- eating and drinking

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

Demonstrate usage of BSL at level 2 by:
- showing a wide range of vocabulary

- using suitable facial expressions with signs

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This course is at level 2. You will be invited to a 1-1 interview with our BSL Level 2 co-ordinator to make sure that this course is suitable for you. The interview will take place via Zoom.

You will need to have basic literacy skills as you will be asked to write some self-evaluations and read topics and instructions for examinations.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

The teaching delivery methods will include:
• Interactive taught sessions
