Family BSL course
Would your family benefit from learning sign language?
Our grant funded Family BSL courses are an inclusive and multi-generational way to learn BSL. Taught by experienced deaf tutors, you will learn enough vocabulary and grammar to have basic conversations, identify and understand everyday signs and create a strong foundation for future learning.
The aim of these classes is not only to teach BSL, but to strengthen communication and relationships within households containing a deaf young person, to encourage deaf young people and their families to develop deaf pride and to realise a positive deaf identity.
Who is eligible?
- Deaf children and young people, and their family members
- You must live in the same household, and live in Scotland
The BSL family course will cover:
- An introduction to British Sign Language
- Deaf awareness
- BSL storytelling
- BSL games
Our courses are all taught by qualified deaf tutors, so you’ll be learning from people who use BSL as their native language.
We will be running BSL family courses suitable for beginners and people with some knowledge of signing. Our courses are taking place online, so no matter where you are in Scotland, you can join us.
Cost: Free to deaf young people and their families, thanks to our supporters and funders.
