Highly recommend!

The Introducing BSL course is great value and highly flexible. It covers all the basics for a simple conversation and gives useful background information about Deafness that I would never have known otherwise. I completed the course with my partner and found it particularly useful and fun to have someone to learn with and practice alongside. Thank you for the opportunity!

Do it!

If you’ve ever considered learning sign language but just never got around to it, just do it! No more excuses. This course is great. Clear, fun and informative. I have learnt so much in a short time and feel inspired to keep learning. Thanks to Simon for being a great video tutor.

Course content is more than sufficient for someone who is new to BSL, very informative and useful. Also a good reminder for individuals who just need that refresher.

A fantastic course that gives an insight on how to communicate with the deaf. This course is well worth the effort of learning and would recommend it

Very Rewarding

A superb course which is designed to encourage enthusiasm, progression and success. Easy to access and a totally flexible way of learning. I was surprised by how much content is covered for an introductory course. What a wonderful language- thoroughly recommend!
IMAGEHelen - 16 August 2021


I have just completed the 'Introducing BSL' course. It covers an amazing range of topics, such as introducing yourself, animals, places, food, relationships, and much more.
It is amazing value for money and provides a solid foundation to help develop BSL skills. The simple quizzes at the end of each topic allow you to check-in on your knowledge of a topic and cement what you have just learnt.

Would recommend to everyone, especially due to the price and accessibility.

Great course

I have really enjoyed this course, I would highly recommend it, and it has been an amazing introduction to BSL, which I hope to carry on studying in the future!
IMAGEAbi Woods - 06 August 2021


Brilliant introduction to BSL with useful links and info. The course is broken down into units with an assessment at the end of each unit which can be taken as many times as needed. I completed this over the year as something new to learn within covid lock down . There are lots of signs to learn so didn't want to rush. Would love there to be a level 2 online course. Would highly recommend!
IMAGEvicki paul - 06 August 2021

Excellent Course - Could not recommend more!

This is an excellent introduction to BSL and I am so pleased I found it. The current pay-what-you-can price is incredibly generous for the wealth of resource you are getting! I will continue learning BSL and wish there was a second level I could take here as I really recommend this platform. Excellent course, thank you for creating it!
IMAGEBetsy - 31 July 2021


Really impressed with the course. The format made it easy to learn - and fit in around other responsibilities. I like that you are able to access all parts of the course at any time. It has made BSL seem much less daunting. I particularly liked that you can go from feeling you only know certain bits of standalone vocab to building sentences/phrases. Couldn't recommend enough.
