Anna: Unlock a new language

Anna: Unlock a new language Anna: Unlock a new language

Find out how City Lit’s British Sign Language classes were able to expose Anna Storm to a Deaf culture that she had previously been unaware of...

'The courses are all run by deaf teacher so I expected there to be a communication barrier, but there isn't at all. The teachers make it so accessible.'

'There's no talking in the class so when you come of the busy streets of Covent Garden and it's just really peaceful and quiet for like 2 or 3 hours. You're all together in a group learning and not talking, it's almost like meditation on a Tuesday evening.' 

'The best thing about City Lit are the teachers. They are really encouraging, and they are really warm and funny in the way that they teach, so coming to classes is a real joy.'
