Really enjoyable

I have BSL Level 1 but have not used it for a very long time so wanted a refresher and this was perfect. Able to follow at a time and pace to suit. I would recommend to anyone wanting to start or refresh as it covers most of the key areas. Good value for money.

The course is really good in helping me to learn how to sign in an understandable way. I was happy to be able to learn about the history of sign language also. Overall it was fun and I'm very grateful.

Go at your own pace course

I really found it useful that I could learn the course at my own pace. Sometimes I struggle if a short timescale is imposed. Learnt new signs and know I still need more practice, lesson 6 was tricky for me. Great course to give me a start and the CDrom is handy to keep me working at signs. Easier to learn than another spoken language. Its a good course if you have toddlers wanting your attention halfway through a lesson. I have been using signing with both my children. To help communicate before speech develops and whilst having speech difficulties. If only everyone did this course, life would be a whole lot simpler. My husband likes that we can sign to each other when out in noisy places without shouting over everyone else. Fully recommend this course to everyone
IMAGEAngie - 13 September 2017

Fantastic Course

I have been interested in sign language ever since I used little bits of it to teach my baby, to help her communicate with us before she could speak.
Now that I come in to contact with Deaf people as part of my work, it's given me the confidence to learn BSL and I am so pleased I have done it and can't wait to use it at work
