This course is fantastic so worth it. It is informative, easy to follow and features like the mirror and even small details like the instructor wearing a wristband on the primary hand really helps you feel confident that you are really learning and understanding what they mean. I had been looking into learning BSL for a little while but once i found this course it was a no brainer with the donation option which means you pay what you can makes it so accessible. So if you see this and you are on the fence, DO IT, learn BSL you won’t regret it.

The course was extremely helpful and easy to use. I learnt lots and was able to use it for my D of E. Also, with the Pay What You Can, I wasn’t expensive, plus I have access to it for 2 years. Overall, great

I really enjoyed doing the BSL course. Very informative and helpful and I hope I can use my new skills to help others or when I lose my speech an alternative way for me to communicate.
