Experienced teachers take students' learning seriously
“Learning BSL has given me a far greater insight into the Deaf World. It has helped me understand more about Deaf Culture and increased my ability and confidence to communicate with Deaf people.”
“BSL Level 3 has changed my life. I am now working as a full time teaching assistant at a bilingual BSL school, working with five deaf children… I owe my teacher, at Dot, a lot, she was incredibly patient. I would not have got this far without her.”
“The BSL Level 3 Project was a hugely positive step forward for me. It gave me confidence by learning alongside Deaf and hearing students and mixing with them socially. It has opened my mind to another culture and brought some wonderful people into my life. It has made me all the more determined to use my BSL in future work”.
