This product is for YSJ degree students, YSJ staff members and NUS cardholders. If you are an external candidate please select the item marked 'BSL Beginners (part-time)'.
Module code: 1LBS01
Preparation for Signature level 101
This course is suitable for complete beginners or those with very little prior knowledge of the language. BSL is a visual/gestural language so you will not need to do any written work. Your tutor, whose first language is BSL, will guide you through a variety of learning activities including: tutor led demonstrations, role play, group and pair work, and video presentations
This course will be taught in sign language though no prior language is expected, and will follow the ‘Signature’ basic curriculum. You will learn to use sign language to converse in a range of everyday topics.
The course will also cover deaf awareness, technology, culture and organisations which work with deaf people.
If you wish to take the external ‘Signature’ BSL Level 1 (101) accreditation at the end of the module you can do so at an additional cost.
These courses start running the week commencing 18 September 2017 for 12 weeks. There will be a 2 hour class every week. Please visit https://www.yorksj.ac.uk/study/professional/institution-wide-language-programme/ to view the timetable.
