BSL Podcast to aid communication with the deaf

BSL podcast The School Of Sign Language have released a series of podcasts that coincide with Deaf Awareness Week to help people learn the basics of British Sign Language (BSL).

“British Sign Language (BSL) is used in preference by 70,000 Deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK. The language is a visual and expressive way of communication. BSL is a language in its own right. It has its own grammar, syntax and structure. The number of qualified interpreters is in dire shortage and the Deaf Community are always looking for more people to learn the Language on a higher level.

School of Sign Language offers People the opportunity to learn British Sign Language and is accessible to every one regardless of age or background.”

You can get the podcasts via iTunes using the following:

I’m not sure why it’s not a single xml file containing all podcasts? But anyway….. you can also view the videos from their MySpace page:

Days of the Week
Months of the Year

Check ’em out. Great idea and well worth a watch if you don’t know any BSL.
