excellent beginners course

An excellent course. I've learned more here than I did on a more expensive correspondence course. All the instructions were clear and the video made it all the more clear. I wish I was able to gain the BSL level one certificate with you. All the courses in my area are either to far away or I have to wait until September. Thanks for making the course so enjoyable.

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.

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

Sooo good!

I have thoroughly enjoyed learning basic sign language and will be looking into doing another course! I found it useful being able to work at my own pace and fitting it around my University Course. I feel like I have learnt soo much and love signing to my housemates when they test me!
Really recommend this course!

Always wanted to learn sign language but could never find the time to do so with working and having a two year old. This is an amazing course that was very cheap but with alot of resources to use and could do at home in my spare time. Highly recommened and now I want to gain my level two.

IMAGEMaeve - 30 November 2015


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!
