Learn British Sign Language with The Manx Deaf Society

Tue, 05 Dec 2023

The Manx Deaf Society will be hosting a range of British Sign Language (BSL) courses for 2024.

For complete beginners, the introduction to BSL course offers 5 sessions, each of which are 3 hours long.

The sessions are taught by Lucy Buxton at The Manx Deaf Society in Douglas.

Beginners are also welcome to apply to join the Level 1 BSL course. On successfully passing 3 assessments learners will receive a certificate from Signature.

The sessions are taught by Ayesha Gavin of Ayesha Communications. Most sessions are online on Tuesday evenings but there are 2 weekends of face-to-face sessions at The Manx Deaf Society.

The Level 2 course is suitable for someone who has already passed their Level 1 or who uses BSL as part of their daily life. This course is taught over 10 weekends, most of which are online but again there are 2 face-to-face weekends of teaching and assessment at The Manx Deaf Society.

The costs for each course are £75 for the introduction course, £200 for the Level 1 course and £240 for the Level 2 course.

For further information about the courses or to request an application form, email lucy.buxton@manxdeafsociety.org.im
