Course Content

Course Content


The aim of this course is to further develop your linguistic skills in British Sign Language towards intermediate level, or B1 of the CEFR. Teaching begins by briefly revisiting the vocabulary and grammatical structures covered in Level 2, before moving swiftly onto developing skills, understanding and knowledge in linguistics, receptive skills, productive skills and conversational skills.

The course is delivered in an informal and relaxed environment and your teacher will use a variety of teaching and learning methods to cater for all learning styles and to meet the needs of all learners. The course is designed to be fun, engaging and meaningful and will give you the opportunity to practice your productive and receptive skills by means of group work, pair work, role-plays, games, presentations and discussions.

The Level 3 course is useful for anybody who is in regular contact with deaf people, be it through work or social life. On completion of this course, learners will be able to further develop their linguistic skills by progressing onto the Level 4 Certificate in British Sign Language course and then onto professional training in teaching or interpreting/translation.

Topics

  • Sign linguistics knowledge

  • Homelife

  • Social and recreational activities

  • Education and training

  • Employment

  • Consumer issues

  • Deaf history and culture




Assessment


The full qualification consists of 3 mandatory units. You must pass all 3 units to achieve the Signature Level 3 Certificate in British Sign Language qualification. There are a total of 3 exams, all of which are externally assessed. BSL320 and BSL321 take the form of a written exam. BSL322 takes the form of a presentation and conversation with your tutor on one of the Level 3 topics. This is recorded and sent to the exam board for marking. All exams will take place during normal classroom hours so it is essential that you make yourself available. We understand that life can happen so if you know you won’t be able to make the exam on the allocated day then please let your teacher know as soon as possible. Additional fees will apply if you cannot attend on the allocated day and time.
