The aim of this workshop is to introduce you to BSL and Deaf culture at foundation level, including the concept of finger-spelling and basic conversation in BSL and is an ideal workshop for anyone thinking about joining the Level 1 British Sign Language course.
The taster session promises to be fun, interactive and informative and will conclude with a brief presentation about our Level 1 course.
There are no assessments with this course.
This is a course for beginners – no prior knowledge of BSL is required
Thank you Lorraine and Cloe for your wonderful, warm presentation. I feel like I have had a brilliant introduction to BSL.

"I wanted to say how professional you and the team have been throughout my application to undertake the iBSL course. Without your support it would have been so easy for me to have given up. A huge thank you. I have since recommended you to my fellow trainee interpreters and hope they apply for future courses. I know I will!"
L. Weatherson, IBSL Interpreting student 2017
Afternoon all, I finally got some feedback from Grey Coat School about the Languages at Work event that you all supported. I have attached the feedback for you to have a read through as it is very positive - again thanks for all your support! Best, Hannah
