We promote the use of British Sign Language (BSL), offering non-professional classes for people who want to learn the language throughout Semesters 1 and 2. We also aim to be a point of contact and social events for people who know any amount of BSL.

We teach both Beginners BSL and Advanced Beginners BSL each semester to cater to different abilities. If you are interested, join the mailing list by becoming a member of the society below, or like the Facebook page www.facebook.com/sotonsignsoc to keep up to date with when the classes will be as well as socials and events.
