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.
IMAGELynne Faulconbridge - 04 March 2007

Excellent course very useful and interactive. very useful that you can do it again and again. posting your thoughts and ideas is good too.

I work with people who need this sign support and have found this course to be very intresting and helpfull, well done Simon would love another course please they are like a good book cant put it down.

IMAGEDoreen Fenton-hale - 24 February 2007

Wanted to learn how to sign. the course made it so easy and helped me pick it up alot quicker than i thought it would. U have the sign in for a year tho it only took me a few weeks to complete, however once u have finished the course you are able to go back to any section and re-cap as often as u like on any material! recommend it to ANYONE, very well laid out, easy to use. easy to follow and very clean on what to do. not only do they show you how to do the sign but if you are unsure they also allow u to click on an explination on how to do it and give u useful tips on how to remeber certain signs. found it much easier than a classroom environment and worth every penny!!
IMAGEJennie McKie - 23 February 2007

Thank you Simon. I have really enjoyed the course and I know that even though I have now finished it, its still available for me to refer back to.
IMAGENeil Hunter - 21 February 2007

i found this course both interesting and useful. It has enabled me to communicate better with a deaf child i have in my class and to teach him new signs as he is still learning them himself. thanks to a great introductory course.
IMAGElisa-Jane Shepherd - 10 February 2007

Just completed the online course today and printed out my certificate. Ive enjoyed the course so much and I know so much more now, that I feel confident enough to have my daughters friend round to play and be able to communicate so much better. Thank you so much
IMAGElisa lowe - 10 February 2007

the course was fantastic well done to all involved arrangign this course its brilliant i really enjoyed it and am so happy that i can now communicate with deaf people instead of having to be so ignorant
IMAGEliz stubbs - 02 January 2007

Dear all, I would like to criticise first then praise if I may? Firstly, I found the test answers too specific and if you didn put the exact phrase or spelling required you were penialised for a wrong answer even though you had put the right answer in a different way. Secondly, it was difficult to read the models lips with his hand movements being infront of his face at times. Praise This is a well designed introduction to british sign language and doesn take too long to get familiar with some of the basics. As a health professional, I would recommend this course as a means to maintain inclusivity and allow informed patient choice in the NHS. It should be an expected standard and should be started in and at the new style medical school level. Thanks for an enjoyable education in communication with sign language. Richard Corkill ====================================== Tutors Note: Thanks Richard. Although the tests do accept some common spelling errors it is difficult to program for all possible spelling errors, but this is something that I am continually trying to improve. Thanks for your feedback.
IMAGERichard Corkill - 18 December 2006

I found the course very easy to use and follow. Having tests after each section helped provide the motivation required to complete the course rather than trying to learn using a CD ROM.
