British Sign Language Level 2

This course is designed to enable learners to develop an ability to communicate using BSL in a range of familiar contexts. This level involves taking part in longer and more open-ended conversations than at Level 1. The course deals 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

MODULE BSL 201—BSL RECEPTIVE SKILLS

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. This will include facial expressions, body language, etc.

 

MODULE 202— BSL PRODUCTIVE SKILLS

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. 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.

 

MODULE 203—BSL CONVERSATIONAL SKILLS

This unit covers the learner’s receptive and productive skills. These are also assessed in modules 202 and 201. 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.
