Welcome to the British Sign Language (BSL) Society!
The society was founded in 2018 and has developed with the help of very supportive members. We are proud to be the biggest society on campus, and were very lucky to win Society of the Year 2018 at the Student and Staff Recognition Awards.
The society meets every Monday from 6-7pm. You do not need any prior knowledge of BSL to join us, as we teach
basic BSL in fun, informal sessions. We will teach everything from basic greetings, to cheesy chat up lines!
We have a lot of connections to the deaf community and are very lucky to have many people interested in visiting the society. Wayne Barrow came in last year to teach the society a BSL song, and we hope to have him back this year!
Towards the end of Semester One, we aim to visit Brownies and Guides to teach some Christmas songs! This was a very popular event last year, with both the children and society members thoroughly enjoying the experience.
Expect lots of fundraisers and socials throughout the year, as we have a dedicated committee to ensure that there are socials everyone can enjoy.

We hope to see you soon!
