Learners will be involved in a practical environment where they will learn introductory sign language. They will also go through some basic communication principles in order to increase their awareness of deaf culture.
Some of the topics covered include:
- Recognising and responding to the letters of the alphabet through finger spelling.
- Exchanging personal details through signing, such as name, address and classroom signs.
- Also weather, food and drink, hobbies and interests, animals and methods of transport topics will be explored.
Lecture based activities that culminate in three video taped assessments.
