About this course

This Sign Language - Conversation Practice at Level 2 course in Ashford is designed to allow students who have already studied to Level 2 to maintain that level of signing and build on their confidence in conversation.

The aim of the course is to enable students to develop an ability to communicate with Deaf people using BSL in a range of familiar contexts, participating in longer and more open-ended exchanges than Level 1. The course will develop functional communication in BSL about a range of real life, routine, daily experiences, including story-telling. There will be a real focus on conversation and improving the use of BSL order and skills such as facial expressions, body language, classifiers, mutli-channel signs to support signing.

How will I be taught?

The emphasis is on signed communication and Sign Language will be used most of the time. A variety of teaching strategies will be used - demonstration and explanation by the tutor with signs, repeated by students, small group work and pair work, whole class exercises, videos and games and handouts to take home.

Initial assessment is carried out at the beginning of the course to assess individual skill level. Each student's starting point is recorded on an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and targets are set to aid development of the skill. These are revisited from time to time during the course to monitor and record progress.

What do I need to bring with me?

File/folder and pen/pencil for your notes. There are no set textbooks for this course but students may wish to buy books and CD/DVDs for home study. Please ask the tutor for advice. We suggest students do not purchase any items before the first lesson.

What can I do next?

BSL Level 3 or other Sign Language courses.

What do I need to join the course

This course is for students who have completed the BSL Level 2 Sign language course or equivalent (minimum of 2 years study) and do not wish to continue with an accredited course or for those students who wish to brush up on their skills before moving on the the Level 3 BSL courses.
