What is the course about?
This is a Learning for Life Skills course.
This course is for adults with an acquired hearing loss who want to learn to lipread. The course will show you how to recognise what the sounds of speech look like on the lips. We start with the most visible lipshapes to help boost your confidence in your ability to follow a conversation when sound is not available. We look at a different lipshape each week and look at it as a sound, as part of a word, as part of a sentence and then in running speech. You will meet other learners with a hearing loss who can appreciate and understand some of the issues that you may be facing.
What previous experience, knowledge or qualifications do I need for this course?
This course is mixed ability, so suitable for all learners.
What do I need to bring with me?
A pen, some paper and a device with a camera.
