British Sign Language is an invaluable skill to hold, as there are estimated to be around seven million hard of hearing or deaf people with in the UK. However, the numbers of speakers of this unique but useful language are low, with approximately on a quarter of a million speakers throughout the country.
Uses of sign language range from tv interpreters to being used in schools to help educate hard of hearing pupils and across the board in workplace environments.
So if you're interested in learning a useful skill, come along and join us every Thursday in September from 7pm to 8.30pm. Course costs £25 per person for the 4 weeks (includes light refreshments)
