Very good course, I found it hugely enjoyable beginning to learn BSL. All in all this course took me about 4-5 hours (not including written exam), so good value for money if you consider how much evening classes cost. Would recommend.

A fantastic intro to BSL!

A fantastic introduction to BSL with useful links and information. The course is broken down into units with an assessment at the end of each unit (this can be taken as many times as you want). The instructions and videos are clear. There is even a handy mirror tool using your webcam so you can check what the actions would look like to another person. I completed this over a year - there are lots of signs to learn so important not to rush it. Would love there to be a level 2 online course. Would highly recommend!

Fantastic course that allows you to study at your own pace. You can revisit lessons as often as you can and it contains all the essentials! The lessons all have videos which show the signs as well as little tips on how to remember them. Thoroughly recommend!

Thank you BSL

The course is extensive and well-explained, but totally flexible and easy to fit into daily life. I loved every second and it was a great use of extra lockdown time. Feeling very accomplished and can't wait to learn more.

Very rewarding!

Sign language is something I have wanted to learn for a few years now, and I decided to take the plunge and enrol in this course. It is 100% worth it, the course has a lot more content than I expected but it is easy to follow, you can do it in your own time, and it is definitely beginner friendly. I would highly recommend to everyone! Thank you.
IMAGEVictoria - 22 April 2021

Great beginners course

This is a great course I really enjoyed it. The videos are very clear and it was nice to be able to go at my own pace/repeat as much as necessary. I think it is well structured and you learn some phrases along with vocab categories. My only suggestion would be more example phrases.
IMAGEErin - 21 April 2021

Perfect For Beginners

Something I've always fancied learning. Had the opportunity to learn this on-line at my own pace. Many thanks
IMAGESuzanne - 20 April 2021


I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. It really isn't the type of thing you can coast your way through. It's detailed, wide-ranging and well thought out. I really liked that there was the same person signing for the whole course as I felt like I got used to his style and that made it easier as I went through. It's made me want to carry on learning! It was extremely flexible and something I could access as and when it suited me. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it if you are committed to learning BSL.
