Signature Level 2 Certificate in British Sign Language

Study BSL with NDS!

A BSL Class in progress

Students practicing their BSL skills in class

BSL Level 2 is aimed at those who would like to build on the basic skills they have already acquired. NDS follows the programme of study for the nationally recognised BSL Level 2 Certificate, developed by Signature. It is divided into three units: Productive, Conversational and Receptive Skills. On completion of the course, learners will be able to take part in longer, more complex conversations than at Level 1, and will be able to use a wider range of vocabulary. Our Tutors are Deaf BSL users, are experienced in teaching BSL and have a deep understanding of Deaf language and culture. The quality of their teaching is reflected in our results.

Learners will often work in smaller groups, or with partners, enabling them to develop their skills and build their confidence in a friendly and supportive environment. You will also have the unique opportunity to practise your signing with members of our Deaf community, who meet in our Bar every Wednesday evening, and have always welcomed our BSL students.
