Join our experienced and knowledgeable tutor for a fascinating and useful introduction to British Sign Language.

Here’s what Lucy said about the course:

“I took the Sign Language Basics Course with my sister and it exceeded my expectations! Alongside learning practical skills such as finger spelling and basic conversation there was a comprehensive introduction to BSL which helped put into context what we were learning. I left the course feeling inspired and eager to learn more. Couldn’t recommend highly enough, thank you!”
