LIS is a language which enables the deaf to have equal opportunities for access to communication and to integration, while enabling people with normal hearing to improve their visual attention, their memory for body language, and also to know a fascinating and complex world which all too often remains “invisible”.

The course includes 80 hours of lessons with:
