    Our Students

    Ideal for anyone interested in learning BSL.
    • Beginners
    • Level 1 Revision
    • School Use (staff & students)
    • Staff Training (medical, retail, childcare etc.)
    • DofE Award - Bronze Skills

A real confidence-builder for a complete novice like myself! This absorbing course not only teaches basic British Sign Language in a friendly, easy-to-understand way, it also makes the pupil try to grasp an understanding of what it means to be Deaf or hard of hearing. I am a (hearing) veterinary surgeon and will find the signs I have learnt from this course particularly valuable in helping me work with owners of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. It has inspired me to seek local BSL courses- I hope to start BSL Level 1 this September at my local night school.

Excellent course

I did this course as i wanted to broaden my horizons and found it very informative, brilliant value for money, and very handy if i had forgotten anything, as i could recap over things, I just need a deaf person to speak to now!

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! 🙂

IMAGEAlex Lonsdale - 28 August 2018

A great course

This course was perfect for anyone with less than basic knowledge of BSL (as I began with), and was well worth the amount I paid for it. I would whole-heartedly recommend the course to anyone!

Good Basic Course For Beginners

I have just completed this course. Learnt lots of signs, able to work at own pace, fun and is good value for money. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wish to learn a new skill. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids. I would like to volunteer to work with Deaf children or help assist young deaf people get into work in the hearing world. Doing this course is the start of my journey, I am now looking to do evening classes for BSL Level 2.

Great course

I really enjoyed this course and wished i'd known about it earlier as i've always found sign language fascinating. I found each assessment easy to follow and liked the fact that i could learn at my own pace. I would highly recommend this course. I would also like to see the next level on line if it were possible.

IMAGElindsay - 11 June 2018

Excellent course.

This is a brilliant and very informative course for those who want to start learning BSL. I really enjoyed it and am really pleased to have completed the course.

Very good content & customer service

So far the content of the course is very informative. Also, my login originally wasn't working, I got an email reply in under 5 min and Simon was very helpful & solved my issue asap. Definitely worth getting.
IMAGEKatherine - 31 May 2018


A thoroughly enjoyable and informative first exposure to BSL. I've now enquired into evening classes where I live and this online course has provided me with a solid foundation on which to build this important, underrated skill.
IMAGEAnthony - 30 May 2018

Amazing course at great value

An amazing course that covers all basics and is much easier to follow and understand than expected. I took this for my D of E bronze and it is an incredibly unique skill that is wonderful to have. I loved the cultural aspect of the course as it provided more insight and background knowledge rather than just the language. Thoroughly recommend this challenging but manageable course.
IMAGEHadi Shaikh - 28 May 2018

great course I've really enjoyed completing the BSL beginners course. It is great value for money with lots to learn and is broken down into manageable sections. Easy to follow, I will definitely be recommending.
