British Sign Language

CAN WE CHANGE THE PAGE TITLE TO 'BRITISH SIGN LANGUAGE' AS WE DON'T TEACH ANY OTHER TYPE ??

 

Sign language is a visual communication method of gestures, body language and facial expressions used by people who are Deaf or have hearing impairments. There are many types across the world but, British Sign Language (BSL) is the most common sign language in the UK, used by around 145,000 people.

Learning BSL gives you a unique skill, that not only enhances communication skills, but also improves awareness of the D/deaf community, and makes you more conscious of the communication needs of other people.
