British Sign Language Level 2

This course is designed to enable learners to develop an ability to communicate with Deaf people using British Sign Language in a range of familiar contexts. This level involves participating in longer and more open-ended exchanges than at Level 1. The course will deal with real life scenarios and routines, focusing on practical topics and conversations.

The qualification is divided into three units that can be achieved separately. The units cover the student’s receptive skills with a multiple choice examination. There is also a productive unit that requires a learner to produce a presentation. The third unit’s assessment tests the student’s conversational skills. To gain the full Level 2 Award in British Sign Language candidates must pass all three units.


BSL Level 2 – Unit Specifications


Learners can understand specific details from, and the general meaning of, a range of information presented in sign language. They can understand standard signing, delivered at normal speed, with facial expressions, body language, etc.



This unit allows the learner to demonstrate their ability to present information in British Sign Language. At the Unit’s end, the student’s language is generally accurate and they make only    minor grammatical errors, which do not change their meaning. If they do not have the vocabulary, they find other ways of presenting information.



This unit covers the learner’s receptive and productive skills, which will normally have been assessed in Units BSL201 and BSL202. It allows the candidate to put both skills together to demonstrate that they can understand and exchange information during a routine conversation with a BSL user.
