BSL courses

One can learn BSL through accredited courses that are delivered by a number of providers, include colleges, schools and private companies.  BSL courses start at beginner stage (Level 1) and progress to Level 2, Level 3, Level 4 and Level 6, the highest level.  Courses vary in length and frequency, with some courses delivered in class by a BSL teacher/tutor, or online.  Courses are designed for students to learn the vocabulary, grammar and syntax of BSL in order to communicate with BSL-users.  An online search will provide a list of course providers locally, or give details of online courses.  Costs for courses at level vary, as does the quality of the teaching.
