Certificate in Lipspeaking course – Manchester

The Manchester Centre for Deaf Studies will be running a course early next year in Lipspeaking.

The 13-month course will start on Saturday January 18th 2020 and participants will work towards achieving Signature Level 3 Certificate in Lipspeaking.

Attendance is one weekend per month and the course will involve study and practice at home, as well as attending lipreading classes.

People who lipread rely heavily on clear and lipreadable speech. Lipspeakers are trained to produce the shapes of words very clearly with and without voice using the flow, rhythm, and phrasing of natural speech. They relay the stress patterns of the speaker and use facial expression, natural gesture and fingerspelling (if requested) to aid the lipreader’s understanding.
