Taster Sessions + Workshops

The perfect way to get involved

Taster Sessions

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!

Workshops

Due to popular demand, we are now running Workshops! We run a mixed Level 1 & Level 2 group and a mixed Level 3 & Level 4 group. These workshops are to give people the opportunity to put their signing skills into practice with Deaf people and other learners.

What you will learn:

This is a fun way to practice your signing skills alongside Deaf people, BSL professionals and other learners.

+ Deaf Corner

At Palm Deaf we find it very beneficial to keep up the social side of things. Deaf Corner is an additional social club we offer and is a great way to spend time, meet and have a chat with other Deaf and BSL users/learners.
