Lip-Reading

Cambridgeshire Hearing Help Lip-Reading Classes

Do you have difficulties hearing? Do you have problems hearing against background noise? Many social gatherings are noisy and so make hearing difficult. Lip-reading is a way of understanding speech by visually interpreting the movements of the lips, face and tongue, and will help your hear better in challenging listening situations.

Our FREE and friendly lip-reading class runs term-time on Tuesdays, 1.30pm to 3.30pm, at St Andrew’s Baptist Church, 43 St Andrews Street, Cambridge, CB2 3AR. You can join any time in the term – BOOKING REQUIRED.

Lip Reading Classes at Mayfield School Cambridge
Wednesdays 6.45 p.m.-8.45 p.m. during school terms

This is an informal group of lip-readers of all ages; most using hearing-aids. They really enjoy learning how to lip-read using light-hearted, well organised and varied exercises. They also acquire other techniques to manage  communication problems. Their Wednesday evenings are run by a fully qualified lip-reading teacher, helped by a few members of the group. Some attend to maintain their skills at lip-reading; others are complete beginners. If your hearing is gradually worsening, it is better to start lip-reading sooner rather than later. Everyone benefits hugely from being able to lip-read in a modest way.

Their programme involves 30 evening classes per year, during 3 school terms (each 10 weeks long) at Mayfield School off Histon Road, where there is free car parking.  The fee is modest. A few places are now available: enquiries to [email protected]
