Sign for Thoughts is a local centre and our courses are competitively priced. We offer quality teaching, a friendly service, and our consistently high assessment results are testimony to our success. Many of previous Level 1 students have enjoyed BSL so much, that they have gone on to further levels.
What? The course:
This is an ideal course for anyone interested in starting to learn BSL and requires no previous experience or knowledge. It is fun and we guide you through from absolute beginner to being able to hold simple conversations in Sign.
Our BSL Level course is fully accredited by the Institute of British Sign Language ( iBSL), as recognised by Ofqual (the Office of the Regulator for Qualifications, Examinations and Assessments in England).
In your class you will participate in 60 hours of training from a fully qualified and experienced BSL Teacher. The course is a balanced mix of direct teaching, with supported practice and group work to fully consolidate your learning. The course is designed for you to incorporate another 30 hours practice outside of class through homework and joining in with activities in the Deaf community.
Your new BSL skills are assessed over 3 distinct units:
iBSL1A1: Receptive Skills in BSL;
iBSL1A2: Descriptive Skills in BSL;
