BSL taster course

Want to have fun and trying 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.

Course content
  • Introducing yourself, fingerspelling & numbers
  • Family
  • Where you live
  • Travelling & weather
  • General hospitality & polite conversation
  • Storytelling

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.
