    Course Outline

    This course contains 10 lessons and covers: Fingerspelling, Numbers, Colours, Deaf Awareness, Introductions, Family, Relationships, Descriptions, Hobbies, Time, Money, Days, Months, & Seasons, Food & Drink, Emotions, Relationships, Animals, Clothing, and Conversation. Also specialist vocabulary for education, medical, retail, transportation and home settings.


  • British Sign Language Communication


    Each lesson ends with an assessment that involves watching short BSL videos and answering questions.

    Using these interactive assessments you can keep track of your progress and look again at areas that you may need to do more work on.

  • British Sign Language Communication


    Once you have scored 85% on the assessments for each lesson, and the final assessment, you are awarded a certificate to show that you have completed the course.

    Our certificate is accredited by CPD.

    Assessments can be retaken as often as you like at no extra cost.

This course is excellent. It is described as an introduction, but at the end of it you will certainly be able to communicate, in a very basic way, with deaf people using BSL. The course not only teaches many shortcuts in the language but, most importantly I feel, equips you with enough skills to learn more by using what you now have. Excellent value for money.

Intro to BSL

Great course for beginners really builds confidence at own pace ,would highly reccomend
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.

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

IMAGEElyssa Comins - 06 May 2018

Great course but only offers a basic introduction so would be great if a next level was added.
IMAGEHeather - 01 May 2018


I have thought of trying out sign language for some time but it wasn't until I developed hearing problems of my own that I took the plunge. This is a great introductory course which was easy to follow and complete. Using this as a base line I hope to advance to level two if I can get in somewhere. Well worth the money and recommended to anyone who wants to communicate with others.

Introducing BSL course

Just finished my BSL course - and what fun it's been. Something different from reading... a mind and memory challenge... but it makes a lot of sense. As a partially-sighted, hearing-impaired person, I now have some preparation for the future and thoroughly enjoyed it.
IMAGENatalie - 13 April 2018

beginner course

A brilliant course. Easy to follow with plenty to learn and challenge the learner. The only thing I'm unsure about is whether or not the certificate will come through once my assesment has been marked and where to go next if I was to want to achieve further qualifications/certificates or just to learn more. the cd rom drive on my laptop is broken and many peopl use tablets now so im unsure where to go next. but a thoroughly enjoyable and educational course and very good value for money.
IMAGEHannah Scott - 05 April 2018


Great value for money, fun and interesting learning, great videos, i loved it and passed all the tests in 2 months. My daughter enjoyed it as well, i really recommend it! More courses please!
IMAGEAndrea - 24 March 2018


Brilliant value for money and really well presented, allowed me to be able to learn this new skill from my own home, at my own pace, and made me more confident in this area. I wanted to learn some basic BSL as we have some clients at work who are D/deaf as well as a family member. I've already recommended it to my colleagues, and my boss has been really supportive of it. More please!
IMAGEKathy - 17 March 2018

Great introduction

This is a great introduction to sign language and the final assessment really tests your understanding of different signs. I loved learning this and hope I can find the time to go onto a different course to achieve a qualification. Thank you
IMAGERebecca Howard - 02 March 2018


This was something I really wanted to do, this course made it fun and a relaxed way to learn. would highly recommend to anyone who is interested. Great value for money.
