British Sign Language Level 3

Our BSL Level 3 course is for those who already have competence in BSL at Level 2. The learner will develop an advanced knowledge of the structure and function of British Sign Language and an understanding of the Deaf Community and Deaf Culture.

This qualification is accredited by Signature, and is divided into three units. By the end of the course the student will have the BSL skills necessary to operate independently and at an advanced level within the language. An assessment will be required before the course starts.

BSL Level 3 – Unit Specifications

BSL 320—SIGN LINGUISTICS KNOWLEDGE

This focus of this unit is on the grammar and linguistics of BSL as a language. It focuses on the syntax and language structure unique to BSL, and involves the theory of BSL as a language. It is instrumental in helping to develop the theoretical framework to inform the practical elements of the later two units.

 

BSL 321—UNDERSTAND VARIED BRITISH SIGN LANGUAGE

The aim of this unit is for learners to learn and demonstrate how to understand a range of information in BSL. By the end of the course the learner will be able to follow conversations and instructions delivered at normal speed, and in a number of work and social situations. This unit covers the receptive skills of the learner.

 

BSL 322 — USE VARIED BRITISH SIGN LANGUAGE

This unit concentrates on the ability of the learner to use BSL. Like 321 it aims to teach the learner about using BSL in work and social settings, however this unit focuses on the ability of the learner to deliver their own information at normal speeds. The learner’s productive skills are tested in this unit, and it is taught alongside 321.
