Good Basic Course For Beginners

I have just completed this course. Learnt lots of signs, able to work at own pace, fun and is good value for money. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wish to learn a new skill. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids. I would like to volunteer to work with Deaf children or help assist young deaf people get into work in the hearing world. Doing this course is the start of my journey, I am now looking to do evening classes for BSL Level 2.

Brilliant for beginners

I decided to purchase this course to help me practise sign language during lockdown since my BSL level 1 course was put on hold. It’s definitely worth getting this if you want to refresh your basic knowledge or you’re a beginner to sign language.
