We are LUU Sign Language Society! We currently have a society meeting every Wednesday evening from 7 - 8 pm in 2017/18 where we aim to teach sign language to complete beginners and, also, allow those who know sign language to practice and expand vocab.
Come and see us at the International Students' Fair on Friday 15th September 2017 in the big Marquee from 10am onwards and the Freshers Fair on Tuesday 19th September 2017 from 10am onwards for more information or a taster. Why not ask us to teach you your name in sign!
In addition, we run a Level 1 British Sign Language course, which starts in October, for those who would like an official qualification in sign language. The course is run by a fully qualified BSL teacher and is subsidised by the society. You can sign up for this at our first GIAG session which will take place on the Wednesday 27th September from 7pm to 8pm in the buisness school, Maurice Keyworth lecture theatre (G.02) Our second GIAG session will take place on Wednesday 11th October in the business school Maurice Keyworth SR 1.06, 1.32 and 1.33. 2014 was the first year we offered Level 2 for those who already had the Level 1 qualification and we have been running it for the past three years with great success!
We are also proud to say we recieved the Riley Award for Best General Interest Society 2013 and the Riley Award for Best Engagement in 2015!
We run various socials throughout the year including nights-out, BBQs, bowling, sign language themed easter egg hunts and lots more so there's something for everyone! Check out our Facebook group: Leeds Sign Society, our Twitter @LUUSLS or our instagram @luusignlanguage for upcoming events.
