An absolutely fantastic course

I have learnt a lot and feel ready to take on level one BSL. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and it was fantastic that I was able to do this from the comfort of my own home with no pressures as to when I needed to complete the course. I would definitely do this course or similar on line again. Thank you British Sign!

Clear & Simple

I took this course as a way of developing my own communication skills, it was well laid out and easy to follow. I am very confident going forward and completing more courses, Thank you
IMAGEMichael Corbett - 07 May 2020

Great online course

This was a very good course to do online , you could do it in your own time and have as many goes as you want. I really enjoyed doing this picking up some new skills and being able to show what I've learned to my family and friends. I can now hopefully use these skills confidently when i go back to work as i work in a school as a teaching.assistant.

Lock down well spent

A great interactive course. It was fun. Interesting to see the things that are the same and different with Makaton. Thank you for putting together such a fantastic learning course 🙂
IMAGEJacqueline Wray - 07 May 2020

Great course

Simple to follow, this course is all you need to learn basic conversational language in BSL. Any aspect of the course can be revisited at any time so uiu can practice as little or as much as you like! Definitely recommend.
IMAGEAshley - 06 May 2020

Very Good Course!

Completed this course during the lockdown as part of my CPD. Really good - will try to keep practising so that I don’t forget it all.
IMAGEJenine - 05 May 2020

Great Course

This is a perfect building ground for starting to learn and incredible language.

My partner and I have been self teaching for about 6 months before deciding to enrol and we are kicking ourselves for not enrolling sooner as our conversations have improved so much from just this simple course!

We can’t wait to expand our knowledge!
IMAGELuke Stewart - 05 May 2020

Great intro to sign language. Also very good value for money and covers an appropriate amout of topics
IMAGESam Jennings - 05 May 2020

introductory course

The introductory course was really useful for understanding all the basic signs in day to day life. Easy to follow and the assessment at the end of each lesson helped to reinforce what I'd learned. So much fun! would highly reccommend!
IMAGEMegan - 05 May 2020

Great course

A great course, really helpful to have videos and the assessments help you recap what you have covered. Would definitely recommend!

I have enjoyed this course so much, it is very easy to follow and no pressure to commit to a time schedule. On the odd occasion I struggled, Simon was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend it.
IMAGEJackie Collins - 03 May 2020


I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to study BSL for the first time.

The website facilities are very well thought out and enable you to learn at a pace that is appropriate for you.

BSL course

Found so interesting and could do at my own pace in my own home, will help in work and my 7year old daughter enjoyed learning different signs too.
IMAGENickee young - 03 May 2020


I love this service, I am only 11 but I have just finished one of the very detailed courses, and I feel like I could talk fluently to another BSL user and understand what they say.
IMAGETommy - 02 May 2020

Great course

Great start to the world of signing for me this is just the start i fully intend to try and find a group to continue this.
I work for a local zoo where we often get various people of different needs coming through the doors and children from schools all over the area.
You never know when this will come in handy when you are that one person who takes the time to have a conversation with someone that is hard of hearing or uses this language.
Totally recommend, i feel this signing should be compulsory in schools just as children are taught french and German.
The tutors are very responsive and provide suggestions in order to continue your signing journey
IMAGEcatherine fletcher - 02 May 2020


An excellent course, I really enjoyed it.
I really liked the final assessment and putting into practice what I had learnt!
IMAGEDaniel FROST - 01 May 2020

Rewarding and Fun

Would recommend to everyone. Really easy to use, lots of great advice, and plenty of links to further resources. Simon is a great teacher. Thank you!
IMAGERachel - 30 April 2020

Great Training

I have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this training over the last week and a few days (completing it in the evenings). My only negative about the course, is that there were a few questions were I was marked incorrect, even on the final assessment, due to the odd mistype. For example, I missed the t in the middle, from appointment. I am dyslexic and do struggle sometimes with quick spell - hand eye coordination. Not sure if there can be some leeway for spellings. A part from that, I really enjoyed spending my evenings doing this course. Even my 4 year old joined in with some of the signs, she remembers them from baby sign language.
