Strategies for talking about English in BSL – Ideas for interpreters and CSWs supporting students in an English language class – subtitled

Cost from £25

Subtitled

Supporting sign language users in an English language class presents unique challenges. Until recently, there has been a lack of collated signs for terms that are likely to crop up in an English language class such as tenses, idioms, adjectives and phrasal verbs.

In this webinar Russell Aldersson shares important research undertaken with teachers of English to sign language users (and some interpreters & CSWs), examining the role of British Sign Language in the teaching of English to Deaf adult learners. You will also benefit from your colleagues’ suggestions made during the webinar’s practical exercises.
