I am lost for words as to how I feel about the outstanding results of this BSL Level 2 course but will try and summarise the success and passion shown by the participants. The course only commenced a few weeks before the outbreak of Covid in the UK and subsequent Lockdown and restrictions were put in place.
People do not always understand the need for BSL Interpretation (pen and paper works a treat most of the time doesn’t it?) and the role of the Interpreter can be an unwelcome addition/intrusion to the communication process.
