Published Friday, 20th April 2018

Kidderminster Library will be opening its doors to allow people the opportunity to begin learning British Sign Language.

 

The workshop on Saturday 28th April, will teach some very basic British Sign Language.

 

The tutor, who will be running the session between 10am-1.30pm, will show learners how to sign the alphabet, basic greetings, communication tactics and a few useful everyday signs and phrases.

 

Juliette Matczak, Library Customer Advisor at Kidderminster Library, said: "We are always pleased to welcome residents to the library and offer them the opportunity to be introduced to new skills.

"Becoming more deaf aware allows Worcestershire to become a more inclusive and communicative county."

 

This adult learning course is one of several opportunities Worcestershire Libraries offer residents to learn new skills and Kidderminster Library will run this scheme in partnership with Worcestershire County Council.

 

Anyone over 19 years of age is welcome to attend and the session will cost £15.75.
