Gain a working knowledge of British Sign Language (BSL)
Sign language is one of the only ways in which Deaf or Hard of hearing people are able to communicate. This type of language involves not only hand gestures but also facial expressions and body language, all combined to enable effective communication.
Sign language is now used all over the world in many different forms. In this certification course, we will primarily focus on the UK’s main form of sign language which is called British Sign Language.
Our British sign language accredited course will go over some of the main elements of the language, as well as its interesting history. From there, the course will move on to explore some of the world’s other forms of sign language. American Sign Language is most commonly used worldwide, but there are actually hundreds of different versions of sign language.
By enrolling BSL course online at Teach Ours, you will understand the importance of Deaf awareness and why sign language is such an irreplaceable tool. People who learn sign language have many opportunities in the job market, which this course will also go over.
You will then learn many commonly used words in British Sign Language. These are covered in three separate stages:
1. ‘Foundation’ – alphabet, numbers, colors, animals
2. ‘Basic’ – people, hobbies, weather, transport, time
3. ‘Expansion’ – greetings, daily life, home, question forms, expressions, food, and drink, compass
