British Sign Language

This is a beginners British Sign Language course accredited by Agored Cymru. The course is 2 hours per week for 10 weeks.

Whether you want to order meals, buy tickets or ask directions, you can learn how to ask the questions, and to understand the answers given!

From the start you’ll agree goals with your tutor and form your own learning plan. You’ll keep your work in a portfolio and track your own learning. Your tutor will assess this and give you regular feedback to help you improve.

You won’t need any prior knowledge of BSL, and each lesson builds on what we’ve covered previously (but you will need to do some work during the week). Bring a notebook and a pen, your tutor will advise you if you need to buy anything else.

This course is on a Monday, 18:00 - 20:00 at Carmarthen Community Education Centre. The course costs £ 75 plus a £10 accreditation fee.

We aim to deliver all courses as advertised. However courses may be cancelled, or changed, if enrolments are too low or in the event of unforeseen circumstances. Once you enrol, refunds will not normally be given to learners who do not continue with their studies. Refunds are at our discretion and where granted will be pro-rata to the number of sessions attended.

You may also call into one of the centres to enrol and pay in person.
