Are the classes in English or Mandarin?
The classes are in a mixture of English and Mandarin. I sing English and Mandarin nursery rhymes and explain the signs in both languages.
Do you have any qualifications?
Yes, I have British Sign Language (BSL) Level 1 and am a third of the way through Level 2, having passed the 203 exam.
What is the difference between British Sign Language (BSL) and Makaton?
British Sign Language uses manual signs (with your hands), facial expression and body language to create a rich and complete language through which a person can express themselves. Makaton is a made up of simple signs that can be used to communicate keywords in a sentence.
