Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Llanelli, Carmarthen and Ammanford learning centres are now open. We expect everyone to follow the new safety guidelines, including use of hand sanitisers and social distancing. Signage will also be displayed around the buildings to remind everyone to adhere to the new guidelines and help keep everyone safe.

New learners: If you are interested in joining an Essential Skills or ESOL course, please contact for further information.

For enquiries regarding Welsh for Adults courses, please contact for further information.


Please continue to visit our Newsroom for the latest information. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Do you want to learn the basics of the BSL alphabet? You can learn how to ask 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. Bring a notebook and pen. The course is delivered two hours per week for 10 weeks. 

This is an Introduction to British Sign Language beginners course and you will not need any previous information about British Sign Language. Each lesson will add to what you have already learned (but you will need to do some work during the week)
