This course is 20 hours (e.g. 10 sessions of 2 hours or 20 sessions of 1 hour via Zoom). At the end you can opt to take the Signature BSL101 assessment to gain a recognised qualification.

The course is suitable for individuals, workplaces and community organisations .

Learn the Basics

You will learn everyday essentials like; Fingerspelling, meeting and greeting, travel and directions, days and months, numbers and weather.

You will learn basic linguistics, such as how BSL uses a ‘topic-comment’ structure and how to construct a sentence. We will also explain the use of timelines and placement. 

The ‘Introduction to Sign Language’ (Unit 101 of BSL Level 1) is perfect for workplaces, community organisations or groups of friends. We can tailor the course to match your needs and even include specialist vocabulary targeted to your workplace.

Group costs are dependent on location and size of group. Contact us for more information and a quote.
