WELCOME TO ASTON UNI'S FIRST SIGN LANGUAGE SOCIETY!!

It's a brand-new society as of 2019/20 with the aim to provide students with the ability to learn sign language in a supportive environment.

BSL is very expressive language and is in fact, very different to the English language. BSL has its own grammar and sentence structures, making it a unique language in its own right. Naturally, it’s a very visual language and it requires you to use your hands, your face and your body to make signs and communicate. This can make it a very fun language to learn and use!!

As well as raising deaf awareness among young people, students are able to pick up a variety of skills when learning sign language. Benefits of learning sign language for hearing people include –

  • Gives the brain a good workout!
  • Introduces students to a new culture & community
  • Meet new people and make new friends outside of the student’s particular degree group
  • Improves peripheral vision & reaction time
  • Boosts communication skills
  • Improves body language skills
  • Be able to help when required
  • It’s a beautiful language!

Come along to one of our informal sessions to try it out!
