Perfect Introduction Course

Before doing this course I didn't know any sign language at all and now although I cannot communicate fully in BSL it is an amazing starting point for me to continue to learn. I started this course as I have always wanted to learn BSL as I find the language fascinating and although I do not need to know it for anything specific it is a great skill to have. I highly recommend taking this course if you are interested in learning BSL as it will help you greatly to move onto gaining qualifications in the language.

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.

Hi I thought this course was excellent and fun. I was able to go at my own speed and was able to log on to it when ever I felt like it. I would reccommened this to anyone who is wanting to start out in BSL.
IMAGEJosephine Stirling - 30 August 2007

This course was excellent! It has allowed me to learn a good amount of BSL over the summer in order to be able to speak to a deaf Brownie when we start back next term. thanks!
IMAGEVictoria Jones - 23 August 2007

Fantastic course. Well worth it! A great opportunity for those without much time to learn the foundations of BSL.
IMAGEKaren Hillary - 20 August 2007

A superb resource! Excellent value and so easy to use. I cant wait for the holidays to be over so I can start practising with my friends and teaching my lads at Boys Brigade.
IMAGEBarbara Durbin - 06 August 2007

Hi,the course is absolutely fantastic!!!The lessons are easy to follow and I really anjoyed this course.
IMAGEKatarzyna Zimolag - 03 August 2007

This course is a great introduction to British Sign Language. The lessons are well planned, easy to follow, you can work entirely at your own pace and help is always there when you need it. Its great value for money and above all its GREAT FUN. All learning should be like this - a follow up course please!!
IMAGEJulia Seabrook - 03 August 2007

Hi, the course is great, it has helped me in many ways. I have placed a poster up at work and introduced a group from work to sign on. Guess what? They have! I even recommend the CD ROM. Thank-you.
IMAGEJacqueline Jourdan-Stoles - 26 July 2007

I have enjoyed this course immensely. It taught me a good amount of BSL and I was able to take it at my own pace. I particularly appreciated being able to go back and revise previous lessons whenever I chose. Simon the instructor was clear and precise, which was very helpful for a beginner, and always responded quickly to any questions I had. I am looking forward to learning more BSL with the Sign to Me CD-Rom that just arrived in the post!
IMAGENaomi Weir Lyden - 07 July 2007

Having just completed the Online Course Id like to say what an enjoyable and encouraging start it has been for me in learning BSL. All the signs are introduced in useful, thematic contexts which makes them easy to assimilate and use together in a practical way. I found that each signed word and phrase was presented so clearly, accompanied by a careful description, that it is possible to understand exactly how to reproduce them correctly from the start, and this has built up my confidence to start using them. The assessment tests after each unit were particularly good for finding out how well I had learned the new material and gave a foretaste of what it will be like when I am able to converse with Deaf people in real life. Im now looking forward to building up my vocabulary using the Sign to Me CD and then to join an evening class in the autumn. David Kennard, Somerset
IMAGEDavid Kennard - 02 July 2007

i have just finished the bsl course. the most amazing course i have ever done. i used sign language when talking to a friend and it was so amzing that i could communicate with her. i could see the hapiness in her eyes as we signed to eachother. i would most definately recommend this course to anybody. it is not something that is impossible as you can access it at anytime. The best course for me!! I am going to continue studying BSL. This is my starting point. Thanks xxxx
IMAGESamantha Dennis - 02 July 2007

This was a fab course, and good for money, would recomend to anyone
IMAGEvictoria welsh - 19 June 2007

This course is fantastic, very well explained and you can keep reviewing it to keep it up. Great
IMAGECarol Battersby - 12 June 2007

I have just finished this course and would recommend it to anyone, I run a hotel and on the odd occasion have deaf people stay here, they were extremely pleased to have someone to talk to if and when they needed something. The price was so cheap for what I got I couldnt believe it. I learnt the basic finger spelling when I was 15 and always wanted to learn more - Im so glad I did - thankyou for making it happen.
IMAGEnicola burch - 16 May 2007

This course was brilliant im a student childrens nurse and can now communicate to deaf patients thank you!!
IMAGENikki Wilkinson - 21 April 2007

Absolutely fantastic! Loved the course and loved the price. Brilliant introduction to BSL, and excellent taster course which will leave you wanting more!
IMAGELaura Bowyer - 17 April 2007

I studied a beginners BSL course at college many years ago and wanted to refresh my memory, in the hope of continuing it further. The course was great, very well put together and you can do it in your own time. My problem now is that there is nowhere teaching the next level in my area. Please do a follow up course for those of us who want to continue learning this valuable skill.
IMAGEAndi Daly - 14 April 2007

This course is fantastic. Everyone is impressed with my speed of learning. I keep signing to everyone whether they are deaf or not. Colleagues in school are very interested in learning as a result of this. Brilliant, a great idea.
IMAGEShirley Fitzpatrick - 27 March 2007

i like this program alots and think that it is suitable foe people of my age ( nine years of age ).
IMAGEAmaka Ananti - 12 March 2007

This course is excellent value for money- please keep it so for as long as possible because it makes it so accessible to everyone.
IMAGELynne Faulconbridge - 04 March 2007

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.
