Lipreading - Introductory 1B

This next stage, following on from the 1A course, will focus on lipreading short and longer stories about current events, popular culture and on making everyday speech more accessible.


The next steps in Lipreading allow you to hone your lipreading skills and take on more challenging material. Practice with a range of gapped hand-outs, quizzes and short and longer prose will enable you to lipread many different sources. 

Pair work and group participation will develop expertise in lipreading different people, accents and lipshapes and put good communication strategies in practice.

This course is offered at a reduced fee due to the support of the Community Education Centre.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:
• Demonstrate good communication strategies
• Fill in gapped hand-outs by lipreading the missing words
• Lipread short stories with a few clues
• Lipread longer passages of prose with a few clues
• Lipread your partner in the class by working in pairs
• Lipread different people in the class by group participation

Bring pen or pencil and paper and notes and handouts from the 1A course.
