ONLINE TEACHING – ZOOM
At Dot Sign Language we are aware of your concerns regarding your courses and assessments, and also of the need to keep yourselves, families and the wider community safe.
As a small business we are also concerned, and thank you for the patience and understanding you are all showing at this difficult time.
All of our classes have been replaced by Zoom video conferencing so your BSL teacher can teach you in 1:1 sessions and later as small groups from your homes.
You will receive regular emails explaining the plan for your course, as well as invitations to your Zoom sessions.
Please don’t worry if this is new to you, our teachers and Communication Support Workers are here to help.
This will be supported by regular homework. Signature are being flexible with assessments to ensure that these can take place.

“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”.
