Course Content

Course Content


The aim of this course is to further develop your linguistic skills in British Sign Language towards advanced level, or C1 of the CEFR. Teaching begins by briefly revisiting the vocabulary and grammatical structures covered in Level 4, 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 6 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 progress onto professional training in sign language interpreting or translation by completing the Level 6 Diploma in Sign Language Interpreting or Level 6 Diploma in Sign Language Translation qualifications.
