Basic Course Unit 101

More info: This basic introductory course in Irish Sign Language runs over 10 weeks with a 1 hour class each week. The course equips students with enough sign language to introduce themselves and conduct a fairly basic conversation with another sign language user. Participants may expect to learn the manual alphabet and some vocabulary associated with everyday conversation. There is some emphasis on conversational practice. Students are expected to attend no less than 80% of the course.

This has a credit value of 3 and costs an extra €40 which students can pay separately if and when they decide to take the exam at the end of the course. Students should have at least 80% attendance. Students can carry on with units 102 and 103 to complete Level 1 Award in ISL, credit value: 9.
