WHY CHOOSE SIGN

British Sign Language is popular and enjoyable because of BSL's interactive and expressive nature.


Our students have fed back that sign has:

  • Helped communicate with deaf and autistic family members and friends.

  • Provided an enjoyable and fun learning experience.

  • Boosted confidence in being conversational in a language.

  • Offered a life skill that will never go out of date.

  • Enriched understanding of people with hearing problems or who use sign to communicate.

  • Helped them to build skills towards their future career choices.


Learning British Sign Language in schools is a great way to support equality and diversity while raising aspirations for children and providing a language-learning experience that is practical and easy-to-use.
