Sign Language Week is celebrated each year in March to coincide with the anniversary of the recognition of British Sign Language (BSL) by the UK Government in 2003. Sign Language Week is an initiative of the British Deaf Association. This year’s Sign Language Week will run from 14 – 20 March 2022. The theme this year will be “BSL Brings Us Together”.
The aim of the campaign is to encourage people of all ages across the UK to take up the challenge of learning some BSL for themselves and finding out more about the language and culture of the 87,000 Deaf, Deafblind and hard of hearing British people for whom BSL is their first or preferred language.
In the meantime, if you are interested in learning BSL, you can search for courses via the two national awarding bodies for studying BSL in the UK: Signature and iBSL
We hope that you will join us this year to learn our beautiful, visual language – BSL
