I was so excited to find this course online. I didnt need my own computer at home as I could access the course online at my local library with no downloads needed. Within 3 days I was able to hold a one on one conversation with deaf relatives. Previoulsy Id not had the confidence to try and with no local BSL course was stuck. Now Im loving it and am even planning a holiday with deaf family. Im so gratefull to this course and hope they might be more advanced online courses I can do next. Its so easy to learn this way.

    Course Outline

    This course contains 7 lessons and covers:

    Fingerspelling, Numbers, Colours, Deaf Awareness, Introductions, Family, Descriptions, Hobbies & Leisure, Time, Money, Days, Months, & Seasons, Food & Drink, Conversation


  • 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 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.

I found this course to be worth every penny and can confidently converse more using the new words I have learnt. I would highly recommend this website to others who like me want to learn a new worthwhile skill at an affordable price 🙂

I have just finished this course. I really enjoyed doing it and it has been very useful as I volunteer with children who have various additional needs. Good value and great fun.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time taking the Introducing British Sign Language Course. Am so pleased I passed and will now look to further my knowledge. Thanks for the help and support.
IMAGEDawn Swepstone - 28 December 2017

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.
IMAGEKim Holbrook - 27 December 2017

Really helpful

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.

I enjoyed doing this course. It was interesting and quite easy to do. I would like to continue but I live in Aruba. I will contact the local Deaf club and volunteer there

Some courses out there are £250! Got great quality teaching from this super cheap course! I worked through it all in just five days! Just wish I had a certificate to show for it...

A most enjoyable course - filled with plenty of info. I simply loved the course. Excellent

Have told friends to learn BSL via this site

The online course was great because you can see the signing for left hand or right hand and pause whenever you need to.

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

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
IMAGEMarina Edwards - 11 September 2017

A great kickstarter course

I got this course for my teenage son to help encourage him to improve his signing for a deaf family member. It has given him loads of confidence and is keen to learn even more now. Thank you.
IMAGEHumpherson - 27 August 2017

This is great!!

I went into this without knowing a simple thing about British Sign Language...within an hour, I knew how to fingerspell the alphabet and count 1-10 off by heart. I can not rate this highly enough because 5 stars is just not enough stars for how good this is and it so easily sticks in your head too.
IMAGERyan - 16 August 2017

Really good

No complaints from me, I've been looking to learn BSL for such a long time and this was a really great and simple way to get started.
IMAGEchristina - 07 August 2017

Simple yet effective introduction to BSL

A great and thorough course for anyone looking to get into BSL and learn a useful skill. Whilst the video tutorials are a little old, I would wholeheartedly recommend this course.
IMAGEAlexander - 02 June 2017

Fabulous and fun!

I enjoyed this course immensely - it is very clearly structured and learning BSL is both fascinating and fun! Excellent value for money, and I'm hoping to find a BSL level 1 course so I can go on learning. Thank you, Simon!
