This course is designed to enable students to develop their ability to communicate with deaf people using BSL, in a range of familiar contexts. They will learn more about the grammar, linguistics, syntax and the unique structure of BSL and then apply this to learn to communicate using the language, in a variety of routine and real-life situations.

Students will acquire a much broader vocabulary, which along with their enhanced knowledge of the structure of BSL, will allow them to have longer, more flowing communications than they could have achieved at Level 1.

Entry Requirements

No formal entry requirements. However this course is designed for students who have already achieved their Level 1 British Sign Language qualification.

Progression Routes

You will be in a position to use BSL for personal communication for employment.
