I thought it was really good for the money it cost me. It allows you to learn at what ever pace is comfortable for you, and you can go back and re-assess your lessons as many times as you need for the duration of the year. I think it would be great to solidify this with actual human interaction after learning from it, but as a starting point this is really good. It covers all the basics, which are what you need as the foundation to learn off of. I'm glad I bought this.

Fabulous for learning the basics, I intend to move on to an advanced course now. The course is easy to use and many my be tempted to fly through it but I found taking each lesson and repeating it over and over helped me learn better
IMAGEJayne - 23 November 2015

Amazing course

This was a really easy to use interesting course; great value and a really useful skill to have learnt. I would recommend doing this for a skill section for the Duke of Edinburgh award. I would really recommend this course to anyone as it is such a great thing to be able to do.
IMAGELaura Bullock - 21 November 2015

Excellent Beginners Course

I have really enjoyed being able to take my time with this course, as some of the videos were a little tricky to see clearly, it was great to be able to watch them over and over again until I was more confident.
I will definitely recommend it!

Great course!

Great course! Easy to follow and understand. Lots of fun resources available to help you remember the signs. I would defiantly recommend this course!
IMAGEAmber - 21 October 2015


Excellent course, so easy to follow and understand. It gives you the confidence to take BSL further. For £20 it is really good value for money. For the cost of a a couple of coffee and cakes you will gain a basic skill which makes you feel proud to be a part of.
IMAGEJoanne Grange - 16 October 2015


This will really help me in the future and it was really fun and interesting to learn. I really want to start the evening classes now!

Kick Start

I have been wanting to learn BSL for years and this course was exactly what i need to kick start my learning.
excellent value for money and brought the disc as well witch seems babyish at first but was exactly what i needed to support my learning. I strongly recomend for anyone who is looking for a basic understanding of BSL!
IMAGEEmma - 11 October 2015


A great way to learn the basics for BSL! Would recommend it to anyone wanting a foundation before learning Level 1 or even as something to do if you want the basics but don't want to pay loads of money for a class.
IMAGEHannah - 11 October 2015


I really enjoyed this course and I look forward to using it for any deaf patients I may come across. I wish there was an advanced online course!
IMAGERachel - 10 October 2015


Easy to follow and really helpful. This course has been fab and I'm looking forward to learning more and to be able to practice what I've learnt so far!!
IMAGEAnn Day - 02 October 2015


I have really enjoyed the course and can\'t wait to carry on practicing
IMAGEclair mantell - 30 September 2015

Great little course

Very good basic introduction to BSL. I took it to learn the basics for any deaf patient's I came across and ended up learning quite a bit more than I expected. I highly reccomend it.
IMAGEAndrew Williamson - 09 September 2015

Really interesting!

This course was fantastic and great value for money! I had never done BSL before, but the course teaches you in easy to learn steps and I was shocked at how quickly I picked it up. Will definitely recommend this course to friends and family.
IMAGERebecca Piper - 08 September 2015


Was a great course, full of great detail and information. A great way to start learning BSL and growing in confidence. Thank you!
IMAGEEmma R - 06 September 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Really easy to pick up. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
IMAGEChristie - 06 September 2015

Easy and fun

The videos in each lesson were fun and very easy to understand. Every lesson had a clear structure and were not too long which makes the BSL much easier to learn. I have never done sign language before so I am a complete beginner and this course taught me so much and so well that I now feel confident enough to have a conversation with someone else speaking BSL.
I would recommend this highly to any beginner as it is great value for money and has inspired me to continue learning BSL.
IMAGEMaxine - 03 September 2015

Great Introduction

This course has been enjoyable and well worth the time to undertake. I feel more confident in my interpretation of sign and how to use it. Following from this I'll be looking into enrolling in an evening course to further my knowledge.
IMAGERobert Skilton - 02 September 2015

Course completed

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, although the video was sometimes too quick, I used the left hand video which was slower and also the description tab to make sure I fully understood the hand movement. I would recommend this course as it helped me a lot and now I'm ready for the next phase
IMAGESandra - 28 August 2015

Highly Recommend this course!

I really enjoyed doing this course, and will help me in my future career in nursing to progress further in the field of sign language.
I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested, have members of family/friends who knows someone or has hearing impediment to help them understand what a person needs or wants.
A well structured course for beginners!
