For those who wish to pursue SEE, we introduce Basic Sign Communication which is denoted as BSC in short. It was developed in early 2014 based on signs from SEE2 (2nd version of Sign Exact English).

BSC is only offered as an enriching course.

For BSC, most of signs originated from SEE2 but they have been modified to follow local signs used by the Deaf Community and to standardize signs for daily communications.

BSC will help to build a vocabulary of signs for daily communications. It cannot be used to replace SEE2 though BSC may be suitable for those who want to sign English.



However, no test or examination is given. Only a Certificate of Attendance will be given to you after the completion of BSC course with at least 75% attendance.

 If you want to go deeper in the sign language world, Singapore Sign Language (SgSL) is highly recommended.
