BSL LEVEL 2
BSL Level 2 Course
This level follows the beginner level. The BSL Level 2 qualification is designed to enable the budding signer to develop and improve his or her ability to communicate with Deaf people using BSL in a range of familiar contexts in a more detailed manner. The course is meant to develop one’s functional communication in BSL on a range of real-life scenarios. The BSL learner will be able to communicate using BSL daily routine and non-routine tasks using more elaborative grammar and structure.
There are 3 units in this course. The student is required to pass all 3, after which a certificate of completion (signature qualification) is awarded.
Unit 1 (BSL 201 – developing receptive skills): This unit involves learning how to receive and understand specific information and instructions, descriptions, explanations and statements when interacting with deaf people.
Unit 2 (BSL 202 – developing productive skills): This unit is about presentation skills.
Unit 3 (BSL 203 – developing conversational skills): This unit involves conversation via routine questions and responses, requests and views.
There are three topics in each of the units:
Eating and Drinking
Shopping and Spending
Travel and Holidays
Assessments are done by an assessor from Signature. Assessments take place during normal lesson times. Assessment fees are included in the fees.
To pass this qualification, you will need to master the theme 'Everyday Conversation', and any two topics.
Assessment for BSL level 2 will be in multiple-choice examination (unit 1), presentation in BSL (unit 2), and conversation in BSL (unit 3).
Completion of the BSL level 2 course paves the way for the learner to enrol on the BSL Level 3.
