What is the course about?

You will find out about the general history of deaf people in Britain.

This is a live course. You need an internet connection. The classes work best with the Chrome browser.
A computer with a camera is best – e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook. BSL classes do not need a microphone as it is visual.
iPad/smartphone/iPhone are not suitable – they are too small.
We will contact you with joining instruction and netiquette for BSL class.

What will we cover?

- the history of BSL and the manual alphabet in Britain
- the history of deaf education in Britain.

What will I achieve?

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

The course is taught in BSL so you will need at least level 2 skills in order to follow the teaching.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
