Introduction to BSL (20 hours) course

  • Would you like to try learning BSL without committing to a full Level One course?
  • Are you interested in learning BSL but haven’t got the time to complete a full Level One course?

BSLworks is offering students the opportunity to complete just one unit from the Level One qualification (Unit 101 in BSL) over five days spread over the course of five weeks. Students will take the unit assessment on the final day of the course.

Taught by our enthusiastic Deaf BSLworks teaching staff, this introduction to BSL will be brought to life for students through interactive learning in an enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere.

By the end of this course you will:

  • Be able to understand and communicate basic information when meeting people
  • Know basic numbers
  • Know how to discuss the weather, transport and to ask for and give directions using basic grammar and vocabulary

Having completed the course you will be ready to move on to complete the full Level One qualification.
