An excellent course, informative and enjoyable. Thoroughly recommended; its useful that you can return to themes which you may need to repeat, too.

Wonderful course

This course is brilliant! I started it having no idea where to even begin with signing and having finished with a clear understanding of each topic. I love the fact you can re-watch clips as many times as you want and retake assessments too. It was the perfect way to spend lockdown.

A Great Introduction to a fascinating language

I took this course to improve my practice in early years. I have gained very useful level of bsl to use in reception class. This is a great course to begin this journey of discovery a fascinating language. Thank you.

Superb Online Course

BSL Intro

I am a 10 year old boy who has ADHD and Aspergers. I found this course great fun and if i can pass it anyone can. I feel BSL should be taught in all schools. Thank you British-sign community
IMAGEvincent - 19 May 2020


Really fun, simple and clear way of learning.
Would recommend.
IMAGEHannah - 19 May 2020

Excellent course

Excellent course and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit. I have always wanted to learn BSL but never had the opportunity until I came across this course. Easy to follow, relevant topics, very clear set up and video clips. Also accredited which is a bonus for my CV. No hesitation is recommending the course.
IMAGEManon Watkin - 18 May 2020

Very good!

I really enjoyed this course and I passed the final assessment first time because the course had prepared me for it very well. I highly recommend to anyone with an interest in learning British Sign Language.
IMAGEKatelyn - 18 May 2020

Great Course

I took this course as part of my CPD as a trainee teacher and I found it really helpful. The course is very interactive and engaging and I would definitely recommend.

Very Impressed

I have been wanting to learn BSL for a long time, I knew the alphabet but that is all . after almost a week I have completed half of the course scoring 100% in all my assessments. As you take the assessment as and when you think you are ready it takes the pressure off. I am amazed that I am able to watch some one sign full sentences and I can understand what they are saying, that's a huge leap from only knowing my ABC;s.
IMAGEToni - 14 May 2020

I really enjoyed this course it makes it really easy to learn in your own time. It also let's you re-attempt the quiz till you are comfortable. Thankyou
IMAGEMargaret Mills - 14 May 2020

Amazing course

This was a great course to do online! I learnt so much and look forward to continue to practice and have the ability to communicate with deaf people. Really recommend this course!!!
IMAGETamar - 13 May 2020

Great Entry Level Course

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this course whilst in lockdown. Not only have I learnt a new skill that I always wanted to do, but I can now take this with me to most places. The only thing I struggled with, was the spelling on some pages wasn't right. However, I didn't let this hinder my experience.
IMAGEBecci - 12 May 2020

Best place to start

This is the best place to start trying to pick up the language. I know a good chunk of vocabulary and feel confident about going to classes.
IMAGECorrina Power - 11 May 2020

why wouldn't you?

I have a whole new skill set and lockdown isn't over yet! All you need is about 1-1.5 hours per unit (each unit is quite long and details) and you'll come away with a massive range of signs to set you up for your next steps, maybe a further BSL course. So glad I've completed this.
IMAGELinda Whiteley - 11 May 2020

Perfectly paced and very informative

Great to follow and an excellent building block to being able to communicate using sign language.

I paced myself to truly understand each section and surprised myself at how much I had retained.
Really have enjoyed this training course and will keep practicing.
IMAGELouise Pearson - 11 May 2020

Amazing Course!

Everything was very clear and easy to learn, I thought it was a great course! I recommend it to anyone who wants o learn BSL.
IMAGEDaisy Stanley - 10 May 2020


The set up of this course was great and made BSL easy to follow and learn.
IMAGEMegan - 10 May 2020

Amazing course

Quick and easy to learn .this will really help me be able to communicate with the deaf or the hard of hearing. It took me 6 days to complete the course form start to finish. But i definitely loved it.
IMAGEAlexandra - 10 May 2020

BSL Introduction

This is one of the most fulfilling courses I have completed during furlough. I've always wanted to learn sign language, but never had the time. As a hearing person, I want to be able to communicate with Deaf people, and this has been the beginning of a great journey I now know I must follow. Thank you!
