Great!

I enrolled on this course several months ago as my daughter was losing her hearing and I wanted to be able to sign with her. I found it good and fun, the bite size sections just the right size and the assessments kept me motivated. Then life got in the way about half way through and I went for months without having finished. Well, logged on today, went back to level three for a recap (which was easier than I thought) and then went on to finish all seven sections. When I got to the clips for the final assessment, my face dropped when I saw loads of info signed to me in a longer clip ...then i realised I could follow what was being said. The sense of achievement at passing the final assessment and getting the certificate was wonderful. Thank you for such a great and very affordable course 🙂

A great introduction to BSL

It's good to have a course that you can do in your own time and not feel under pressure. Easy to follow and enjoyable to do.

Unable to go to a taught class due to a back injury, this has been brilliant. The lessons are presented well & explained clearly. Staff are friendly & always helpful. It is also very good value for money. It is difficult to write a review & do the course justice. I guess the highest praise I can give it is that, in a relatively short space of time, it has helped me decide that I want to become a BSL interpreter. Would recommend this to anyone & everyone. Whether you want a career change or just to have another skill, it is well worth it. Im quite sad its all over! FANTASTIC!!!!

I really enjoyed taking part in this course . I am currently studying for BSL Level I at Blanche Neville in North London and have found it extremely useful to have this course to follow in my own time at home. I have found using books to learn sign very difficult so it was great the way the video clips were available for repeating and extra understanding - have really benefitted from this programme and would recommend it to other beginners .

As a BSL tutor I tried this course out to see how good it would be for my students. After completing the course (with some mistakes!) I feel this is a good site to recomend to anyone who is thinking about doing a BSL course, good grounding for the terrified!

I have been asked to say a few words about the course, and I am delighted to do so. I havent had such a fabulous time learning and going through the lessons as I did for a long time. To be able to re-do all of them time after time was not only helpful but very encouraging to see how far I had come. My most favourite person in the whole world at this moment is SIMON, who has not only been a great help but has shown such patience and kindness to me all along. I cant wait for level 2 to become available, but until then I want to thank every one for making this online course possible for me. Online is the very best way, at least for me, to learn. I dont get frightened of competition or haveing to keep up. Thank you all again, and God Bless Ann 100 out of a 100

This course is excellent. It is described as an introduction, but at the end of it you will certainly be able to communicate, in a very basic way, with deaf people using BSL. The course not only teaches many shortcuts in the language but, most importantly I feel, equips you with enough skills to learn more by using what you now have. Excellent value for money.

As a senior Citizen, and over the years I have had hearing diifficulties through my occupation, which caused hearing damage. This course which I have done is extremely good, having the time to complete it earlier than reccomended, I have now enrolled to take up the Basic BSL course at College, as this course has given me added confidence, and knowlege.

What a great start to learning BSL. A very good value for money course and loads of support frm teh tutor. I made friends and found a forum where i was listened to with my assignment problems. The course was great as I worked through it at my own pace and completed all 7 assessments with 100% pass rate. being able to go over the courses and re-do them as many times as needed was very helpful and I look forward to purchasing more courses. Best wishes to you all. Jen Cook
