Welcome to Edinburgh BSL Group
We are the Edinburgh BSL practice group and you are welcome to come and join us.
We meet every Thursday between 7 and 8:30pm in Elaine's Cuppa Cake which is at 16 South Clerk Street, Edinburgh. Feel free to come and have a blether with some British Sign Language learners and users over a drink. It is a great opportunity to use your signing skills in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere…for free
Come to group events, quizzes and outings (the monthly BSL pub quiz is on the last Thursday of every month!)
This is a group for anyone who signs, whether you are Deaf, hearing or hard of hearing. All levels of learning are welcome (but we can't teach you - sorry!)
We look forward to seeing you!
