Certified Mental Health Awareness Online Diploma Course

Sign language is one of the only ways in which deaf people or those with hearing impairments are able to communicate. This type of language involves not only hand gestures but also facial expressions and body language, all combined to enable effective communication.

Sign language is now used all over the world in many different forms. In this course, we will primarily focus on the Ireland's main form of sign language: British Sign Language.

The course will go over some of the main elements of this language, as well as its interesting history.

From there, the course will move on to explore some of the world’s other forms of sign language. American Sign Language is most commonly used worldwide, but there are actually hundreds of different versions of sign language.

The course will also take a look at the importance of deaf awareness and why sign language is such an irreplaceable tool. People who learn sign language have many opportunities in the job market, which this course will also go over.

You will then learn many commonly used words in sign language. These are covered in three separate stages:

  1. ‘Foundation’ - alphabet, numbers, colours, animals
  2. ‘Basic’ - people, hobbies, weather, transport, time
  3. ‘Expansion’ - greetings, daily life, home, question forms, expressions, food and drink, compass

All in all, you will complete this course with a good knowledge of sign language in general and, specifically, a sound understanding of British Sign Language.

You will then have enough knowledge to go on to complete the Level 1 Award in BSL.
