Workshop Description

Formal/informal BSL signs

It is sometimes difficult to know whether BSL signing is formal or informal, so here is
an opportunity to learn the difference between using formal or informal signs at
level 3 & 4 / CSW trainee interpreters.

In the English Language you all know when to speak formally with professional
people: for example, you change your rhythm or tone of speech according to
other people’s, by demonstrating your emotions such as anger, or being upset.
having fun or being relaxed. The same can be done with BSL

In the same way, when speaking informally you can demonstrate tone of voice by
changing speed or frequency and applying metaphor in BSL.
This is a unique workshop for BSL students in professional capacities to understand
the formal/Informal linking of BSL to English.

Do you want to develop your BSL fluency to a high standard? I am able to
enhance your fluency to that of a native BSL signer.

Come along and enjoy your day and learn how to use formal/informal signing like
a Deaf person would!

We only have 16 places at the workshop so to avoid disappointment book your
place now!
