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

Well worth the money

As someone who is losing their hearing, I enrolled on this course to see if I had the aptitude to learn BSL. The sessions were clear and easy to follow and I could dip in and out as time allowed.
A great start to BSL that I will recommend in school - and a cheaper starting option than the full course that I shall look to enrol on.

Super course, confidence giving, I am now using BSL daily. So Impressed with this course I have registered three of my students from school.
Depending on their results and progress I will aim to be doing two classes of 30 !!!!

Perfect introduction to BSL

This course is a brilliant way to start learning BSL at your own pace, and in your own time, at home. I had a lot of fun while doing this course and really feel I have a solid foundation to build on. Would highly recommend!

Great way to start BSL

This course gave me a new perspective on BSL. I didn't realise it was such an imaginative and powerful language. Really enjoyed learning it and feel a sense of achievement. Thank you.

Excellent Introductory Course

I really enjoyed this great introduction to BSL. The structure of the course is great and the topics are conveniently located online and easy to follow. It took me a few weeks to complete the course at a leisurely pace and I really feel as though I have developed a good initial foundation that I can build on. Thanks!

A fabulous start to BSL

I signed up to BSL less than 4 weeks ago and have just completed my first course. I have absolutely loved it, pleased to have picked it up as well as I did and am looking forward to the next stage.

Would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn from scratch.
IMAGENai - 01 September 2018

A well-designed course for anyone wanting to start learning BSL, I undertook the course on my gap year so being able to take my time in learning it at home was wonderful! Being able to judge your progress with the assessments was useful, and allowing re-attempts was great in ensuring you have the knowledge before moving on! 🙂
