Workshops, Taster Sessions & BSL Clubs Timetable and Cost

BSL Taster Sessions

What you will learn:

A BSL Taster Session will introduce you to British Sign Language and how approx 70,000 to 125,000 Deaf people in the UK communicate using BSL as their first language.

You will learn how Deaf culture is different to hearing culture and how to communicate better with people that are part of the Deaf community.

You will learn the BSL Fingerspelling Alphabet along with some basic signs that are used when meeting and greeting Deaf BSL users.

Hopefully, you will enjoy your Taster Session so much, that you will decide that you would like to further your skills and join us for a full Level 1 course!

BSL Clubs

What you will learn:

Due to popular demand, we are now running BSL Clubs!! We run a mixed Level 1 & Level 2 group AND a mixed Level 3 & Level 4 group. These ‘Clubs’ are to give people the opportunity to put their signing skills into practice with Deaf people and other learners who also want to practice. We have a ‘theme’ for each session that is used to encourage each candidate to take part and engage in discussions.

They are relaxed and informal sessions with tea, coffee, and biscuits (or cakes if you are lucky!!). We aim to run these sessions on a monthly basis, but can only organise them according to availability, so please contact us at hello@palmdeaf.co.uk to make inquiries and book a place. Each 2-hour session costs just £6.00.
