BSL Introduction - Really Good Course

This was a great introduction to British Sign Language, it is flexible and easy to follow. It gave me all the basics and I would now love to learn more. I would highly recommend this course.
IMAGEAmy - 21 December 2021

Very much enjoyed!

I really enjoyed this course, after being inspired by Rose on Strictly come dancing, I felt it was highly important that I became more aware of the deaf community. I would recommend this course to those who want to start their sign language journey.
IMAGEmacy - 21 December 2021


Amazing course! Would not hesitate to recommend it - brilliantly put together and can be done in your own time. Thank you BSL for the opportunity to learn the basics of this skill!
IMAGETorr - 18 December 2021

Excellent Course

As a brand new learner, this course was exactly what I needed to kickstart my learning of BSL. Being introduced to the background of the language is such a great starting point to understand the rest. The videos were really useful and the associations were very helpful. I would absolutely recommend that anyone take this course to get to grips with the basics of BSL.
IMAGELiam - 14 December 2021

This BSL course is amazing for learning the basics of sign language, and was definitely worth the time and money!

BSL Introduction

I am very happy the I have done this course an was pleasantly surprised that I have passed. I will continue to dip into the course from time to time as I am still within the year. I would recommend this course to everyone who has an interest in sign language, I find it more interesting than using another language as it benefits more people in the long run.
IMAGEJane Davidson - 23 November 2021

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!
IMAGELianna - 07 November 2021

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.
IMAGEElizabeth Marsh - 25 October 2021


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.

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.
