Great course

Great course, I really enjoyed it and I go for next step. I would definitely recommend the course, very good value for money.

My first taste of BSL

I have really enjoyed learning the basics of BSL. I cannot wait to use what I have learned in my job and everyday life. I look forward to taking my knowledge further.

Enjoyed Doing this Course

Always wanted to learn sign language and this was a convenient way for me to start to learn on my own at my own pace. Found the structure good, on the final assessments could have done with a function to replay just a small section of the video rather than have to go back to the start each time. I got a couple of questions wrong but there was no indication given of the correct answer which would have been helpful - but overall I enjoyed doing this course

Excellent Introduction to BSL

I have thoroughly enjoyed this online course and found it to be fantastic value for money. It has given me the basic skills needed and I am in the process of sharing this with my own children - which is something they are enjoying learning. I think all teaching staff within schools as well as students would benefit from completing this. Can't wait to take my learning further.

Most Enjoyable

Thecourse is most enjoyable and helped me to progress from the basic signs I knew to being able to converse about important basic topics.The web review of deaf related support sites was also of great interest to me. I look forward to learning more.

Worth Every penny and more

This course not only gives you an introduction to BSL but also provides a better understanding of a whole community which I wasn't even aware of.

I definitely recommend this course
IMAGEChris Stones - 12 September 2016

Thank you

Thought I'd give this a go as I already knew how to finger sign, and a deaf friend has taught me a few words. I have thoroughly enjoyed this easy way of learning and now I'm considering taking it to the next level, Thank you

Simple and loads of fun!

Absolutely loved this course. The introductions and explanations were kept simple and the course extremely enjoyable. I am also impressed that I got so much for such a low price. I highly recommend the CD ROM dictionary as well as the online elements. I was very pleased to find a course that I could fit around my work and do in my own time.

Excellent course for an introduction to sign. Videos online allow someone with little confidence to complete the course gaining confidence to sign with others. it was a really interesting course to complete 🙂

Great Fun

This was great fun and a very valuable tool to start learning BSL. I learnt a lot and feel confident I can follow some conversations, although people will need to sign slow to start.
IMAGEMark - 11 April 2016

An amazing way to start learning BSL!

This is a very helpful, easy way of learning the basics, not only teaching you vocabulary but how to structure a conversation. Well worth it!
IMAGESam Davidson - 06 April 2016
