BSL taster course
Want to have fun and try something new?
Our Taster Course is the perfect start to British Sign Language (BSL) for those who are not ready to commit to a full SQA course or just want to learn some basics for fun!
Our courses are all taught by qualified deaf tutors, so you’ll be learning from people who use BSL as their native language. As Deaf Action is a charity, when you book your BSL course through us, the income is reinvested back into improving services for deaf people.
- Introducing yourself, fingerspelling & numbers
- Where you live
- Travelling & weather
- General hospitality & polite conversation
Progression from this taster course takes you onto the SQA Introduction to BSL course. The SQA Introduction to BSL course will need to be completed before you can progress to the SQA Level 1 BSL course.
Our BSL taster courses are available in-person in Edinburgh. Classes take place at Deaf Action, 49 Albany Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3QY.
Course dates: 26th October to 30th November 2023
Time: Thursday evenings, 6pm to 8pm
Price: This 6-week course is £95
We also offer online taster courses, so no matter where you’re based, you’ll find a course to suit.
