    Certificate

    Once you have scored 80% on the assessments for each lesson, and a final assessment, you are awarded a certificate to show that you have completed the course.

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

As a BSL tutor I tried this course out to see how good it would be for my students. After completing the course (with some mistakes!) I feel this is a good site to recomend to anyone who is thinking about doing a BSL course, good grounding for the terrified!

Hello everyone, I have just finished the course online, brilliant. I have also purchased Sign to me. 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!!

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.

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.

I just want to thank Simon for this opportunity to begin learning sign language, and to recommend to anyone reading this to do the course. It is excellently presented, has clear instructions and is set out in such a way that the signs are easy to learn and remember. I now feel confident in using the signs I have learned in my job within the health profession, and I fully intend to continue in my study of this language. Thanks again Amy x
