BSL Immersion Weekend

Date: Friday, 10 Sunday 12 June 2011
Venue: TBC (residential)
Cost: 250 tbc
Closing date: tbc


Possibly the most effective way to improve the learning experience of signing deaf children is to improve the signing skills of their teachers or support workers. Due to the success of previous BSL immersion weekends it has been decided to repeat this in June 2011. The weekend will include various activities led by experienced deaf BSL tutors designed to improve BSL vocabulary and skills.

Target Audience: Teachers of the Deaf, Communication Support Workers, Parents and others interested in improving their BSL skills.

Presenters: John Hay OBE, Wolverhampton University,
Beth Harte and Ronnie Harte, Deaf Perspectives Glasgow
