Everyday Essential British Sign Language (L1)

You will initially see Marcel, who is the main presenter, during the teaching stages of vocabulary.

 

Once you have completed those sections you will reach the 2 part conversational dialogue sections where you’ll be introduced to different deaf presenters. These presenters will show you how to put the vocabulary together into conversations.

 

There are chances to watch these videos with voice and subtitles and then without – which encourages the development of your BSL receptive skills.

 

Your BSL Deaf Presenters throughout are Ramon Woolfe, Radha Starr, Marcel Hirshman, Fifi Garfield and Deepa Shastri.

What's Included?

You will need to watch each whole video before you are able to mark it as complete, which then allows you to move onto the next video. There is a prompt button to guide you through and show when you can click on “complete lesson”.

Introduction and How to Complete the Course

Sonia Hollis

 

My name is Sonia Hollis and I’m a qualified Sign Language interpreter. Learn Sign Language Ltd was set up due to the huge demand for people wanting to learn sign language online. 

 

Throughout the course there will be multiple choice questions to answer which tests your sign language receptive skills.

 

The course content is designed to be taken at your own pace, where you have 12 months access in order to complete it. However, as a guide, the content is designed similarly to a class based environment where you are taught 2 hours per week. This allows for pausing of videos and practising in between.

 

You will need to watch each whole video before you are able to mark it as complete, which then allows you to move onto the next video.  There is a prompt button to guide you through and show when you can click on “complete lesson”.

 

If you have any questions, you are able to contact Sonia directly on sonia@learnsignlanguage.co.uk

If you are a beginner 

We recommend starting with the Everyday Essential British Sign Language (L1) which will hold you by the hand and take you through step by step so you can build up your confidence and conversational skills in BSL. 
 

Once you have these foundations in place then we recommend to add on BSL Storytelling of Real Life Situations (L1).  This will extend your knowledge about more grammatical elements of BSL, using our 4 part picture sequence stories as a prompt.  

Our BUNDLE packages have been proving popular where you can Save £’s CLICK HERE  

If you already know BSL

If you already have a foundation in BSL and can hold a conversation quite easily then we would recommend starting with both the Everyday Essential British Sign Language (L2) and also BSL Storytelling of Real Life Situations (L1 & L2) 

Interested in American Sign Language? 

American Sign Language has it’s own grammatical structure and is different to British Sign Language. We often have students wishing to learn both.  The package for you here would be our Everyday Essential American Sign Language (L1)
