Learners will take part in simple, predictable conversations and give and follow simple directions or instructions in BSL. This is an exam based course. By the end of the course you will be able to give and follow familiar statements or descriptions and be able to communicate using BSL at a basic level. Please bring a pen and paper. Tutor:TBC
