    Course Outline

    This course contains 10 lessons and covers: Fingerspelling, Numbers, Colours, Deaf Awareness, Introductions, Family, Relationships, Descriptions, Hobbies, Time, Money, Days, Months, & Seasons, Food & Drink, Emotions, Relationships, Animals, Clothing, and Conversation. Also specialist vocabulary for education, medical, retail, transportation and home settings.


  • British Sign Language Communication


    Each lesson ends with an assessment that involves watching short BSL videos and answering questions.

    Using these interactive assessments you can keep track of your progress and look again at areas that you may need to do more work on.

  • British Sign Language Communication


    Once you have scored 85% on the assessments for each lesson, and the final assessment, you are awarded a certificate to show that you have completed the course.

    Our certificate is accredited by CPD.

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


I had learnt a little BSL when I was younger and after doing this course I know so much more. It is very easily set out which makes the course both easy to understand and fun. There are 1 or 2 assessments in each lesson than a final assessment at the end. If all assessments are completed at 80% and above you can download the certificate but don't worry if you get less than 80% as you can retake them although they will be different questions and in a different order.

Fantastic course. I've wanted to learn sign language for some time but there are no classes in my area. I found this course excellent. As a beginner it was very informative and easy to follow. Proud to say I passed!

Fun, easy and great value for money!

This course is excellent, really well structured and easy to follow. Well worth the money and perfect for beginners or if just wanting to refresh. I am looking forward to moving on to the next level.

Thank you very much.

Very Good

" It is really a fantastic course. I am new to this course and after learning this intro course i am thinking of doing higher level of sign language. Fantastic course who are interested in learning sign language".

Thank you.
IMAGERachana Chimmalagi - 07 March 2014

This is a great course but not brill when you have dyslexia and can't spell well. Although I should have got 100% on some of the assessments, it marked me down due to spelling errors. This was disapointing. Also not clear on exactly what to type ie. hungry/I'm hungry/I am hungry. You have to be exact. Really helped me learn though.

I had already done my first level at night school but this course was brill to refresh ,due to working with the elderly in nursing homes, I have use these skills several times ,just to break communication barriers, recently staff at one of the nursing homes could not understand why this elderly deaf lady (82) was not drinking her tea ,the lady signed to me she only drinks coffee ,how sad is that ,nice ending, she is now drinking her milky coffee with 2 sugars staff were amazed.
Thank you

This course was brilliant, well structured and fun. As an Occupational Therapy student, knowing some British Sign Language is extremely useful as I will be expected to be able to communicate with anyone.
Plus, the price for this course is student friendly.
I am excited with moving on to the next level of BSL.

Thank you so much.
IMAGEAndrew-Michael Rae - 21 February 2014

Fantastic Course

BSL is something I have wanted to do for such a long time and now I have the foundations in which to build on.
Fantastic course that has given me the essential skills I can use to communicate with people in my daily life and hopefully go on further in my career and develop.
To anyone who wants to learn BSL for fun, their career any reason then do it.

Thanks for a great Intro Course
IMAGELauren - 16 February 2014

Great starting point...

I started this course to help with my BSL Level One studies. It is a great place to start your learning and helps give you confidence in the classroom. Thank you very much and very good course.
IMAGEMarie - 09 February 2014

Good place to start

Really good starting point for anyone wishing to learn bsl. Takes it steady but you still feel you've learned a reasonable amount by the end. Only small gripe would be that it does not give the correct answers to the questions answered incorrectly in the review page.
IMAGETom - 06 February 2014


very flexible and suits the needs of everyone! allows people to learn a substantial amount of basic knowledge at their own pace and gives them the communication skills needed to communicate with the deaf!
IMAGEAmy Berrill - 05 February 2014

Great course

Very good value for money, flexible to meet the needs of those who cannot afford to attend evening classes etc. Clear instructions, good selection of topics.
IMAGETamara - 01 February 2014

IMAGEA - 14 January 2014


I am a student in my third year studying English so I am incredibly busy but this course was fantastic to take alongside my degree! I could do everything at my own pace, being able to revisit the information I already covered and retake assessments was fantastic! I was so shocked at how much I learned at the pace I was learning, it will certainly supplement my CV and is a wonderful life skill to take with me. I am inspired to continue learning BSL! x
IMAGEDanni - 13 January 2014
