Trade School class: Introduction to Sign Language

About the class

Have you always been interested in sign language? In this class you will get an overview of the underpinning basics of British Sign Language (BSL). We’ll go through such things as finger spelling, basic everyday signs, numbers and lots more.

About the teacher, Siobhan Michaels

I learned British Sign Language a couple of years ago because I was curious about it. It’s opened my eyes to the challenges deaf people may encounter in their day to day lives. I grew up in Sedgley, I live in Dudley now. I’m also a sci-fi geek.
