Sign Language Society

We promote the use of British Sign Language (BSL), offering non-professional classes for students and associates of the University of Southampton. We run these for those 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.  We also have BSL conversation practice sessions through SUSU Give It A Go, where you can have a go at using BSL in conversations. We run these activities in both semester 1 and semester 2. If you are interested, join the mailing list by becoming a member of the society below, or follow us on social media to keep up to date with classes, socials and events.
