Sign Language Classes: Basic Course

Life Skills

Basic Sign Language Course

This basic introductory course in 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 that 80% of the course.  We are now offering the Signature exam for unit 101. 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.

Cost: €40 including handouts via email (usual price €75)
