Learn Sign Language

British Sign Language (BSL) is the first or preferred language of an estimated 70,000 Deaf people in the UK, and in March 2003, BSL was recognised by the Government as a language in its own right.

We offer a range of courses from beginner to professional level. Broaden your knowledge of communicating with Deaf people or work towards professional level skills and a career as a communication professional.

An excellent course with a very patient tutor who taught us the importance of facial expression and hand shapes.
