Welcome to SignSoc!

We provide a social, informal opportunity to learn British Sign Language alongside other beginners. 

We meet Tuesday evenings, for the time being online wherever you are.

In 2020/21 we are planning to offer student-led live online lessons with the hope of branching out into in-person events when possible! We’re working hard to ensure that the sociable, fun elements of SignSoc previous members have loved can still be possible under the current circumstances. 

Some topics we’ve learned in the past include the alphabet, countries and alcoholic beverages, and we love learning to sign songs!

We’d love for you to become a member but there is no commitment to buy membership for your first lesson. If you’re joining us mid-semester, very little prior knowledge of BSL is required, and there is usually no BSL required for our social events throughout the year.

Our lessons are completely student-led but offer subsidised placements in SQA-accredited BSL courses offered by Deaf Action. We will be releasing more information on these placements towards the end of Semester 1.
