BSL Level 3

Level 3 is suitable for those students who already have a BSL Level 2 qualification and wish to progress to the advanced level. Femaura’s British Sign Language Level 3 course candidates will be able to sign at normal speed and fluency and understand a wide range of social and work related vocabulary while having a conversation in both formal and informal settings.


In order to achieve this the course will include essential vocabulary at advanced level as well as BSL grammar and Linguistic features covering:

  • Timeframes- past, present, future
  • Appropriate behaviour when socialising and working with Deaf people
  • Ability to adapt your register with different people and domains
  • Express your opinion and arguments in a debate situation We will use a number of teaching methods such as filmed and assessed tasks, group activities, demonstrations and a variety of receptive exercises. Homework will be given and you will receive feedback on both classwork and homework in BSL.

At the end of the course students will be able to give a professional presentation about Deaf issues, use various BSL grammatical structures with fluency, understand a wide range of vocabulary and answer questions at advanced level.


This is a certified course and in order to receive the ABC Awards, BSL L3 qualification students must successfully undertake six assessments; four receptive, one presentation (which covers productive) and one dialogue. As required, part of the course, you need to attend Deaf Clubs or Sign Clubs regularly to practice with Deaf people to develop more vocabulary and developing at high standard of BSL Level 3 skills.

If needed you can retake them. Femaura’s tutors will offer full pastoral support to ensure candidates complete their coursework portfolio. Please note in our BSL Level 6 course, we accept your ABC Awards Level 3 qualification as long as you have achieved at a high level of BSL Level 3.
