Fabulous course

Fantastic course, such a brilliant introduction to bsl. You learn so much and it it so varied. Great to learn at your own pace too.
IMAGEStephanie Clark - 10 September 2020


A fantastic course which is easy to access and has great tools to learn. With assessments after each lesson you can track and monitor your progress intensely whilst you complete the course. It has helped my learn a lot during lockdown. Not just signing itself but the background behind it. I think its such a valuable asset to have and would encourage anyone to take it up and give it a go.

Brilliant Online Course

I really enjoyed completing this BSL course.
The way the course content was presented to the learner made it easy to follow and learn.
I would recommend this online course to adults or children wanting to learn basic sign language.
IMAGEHelen - 07 September 2020

It is really good

The course was really good. It showed the signs well and had descriptions of the sign. I really enjoyed. However, they could be descriptions for all the signs and the signs could be broken down more.
IMAGEKatie Boase - 04 September 2020

Excellent course

I have wanted to learn sign language for a long time and signed up as soon as I retired from work.
The course was brilliantly organised and very easy to follow.
I've thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and hope to follow up with further learning.

Amazing Online Course

I really enjoyed this course. You can complete it in your own time and access each lesson as many times as you like which is really useful for revision.
I would recommend to anyone looking to learn BSL as it is such a valuable skill. You get a certificate at the end and it's excellent for your CV!

I have really enjoyed completing this course over lockdown. The videos are very clear and easy to see exactly what you need to do, the course is also simple to navigate and you can easily go back and practise. It covers a wide range of topics making a great course for beginners. Highly recommended.

Introduction to British Sign language

The course was absolutely fantastic and well worth the money!
Easy to follow structure and very well explained. Would recommend to anyone!

BSL On-line course

I decided to do this course as a challenge during the Covid-19 lockdown. I found it very well explained and easy to follow with assessments at the end of each section. These can be completed as many times as you wish with a target of 85% or more to be attained for the final certificate (I am competitive with myself and retried any for which I did not get 100%!!). Great course - everyone should have a go at it!

Great skill to take up

I took this course at the beginning of lock down after participating in a online British Sign Language training session through Zoom.

This course has helped teach me new skills and signing for phrases with I can use within my work environment.

Enjoyable and useful!

This is the only one of my lockdown projects I managed to see through to the end! The course was enjoyable and informative, I found it was taught in manageable chunks and managed to complete it fairly quickly. I'd really recommend it.
IMAGEAnna - 22 August 2020


What a fab course! A great introduction to Sign Language, lots of vocab, very easy to negotiate the online course and recap if you forget. Fantastic value for money, very enjoyable course, so pleased I have finally learnt the basics of BSL. Well done BSL! Thank you.
IMAGENell Last - 16 August 2020


I have thoroughly enjoyed doing this course, learning the basics of BSL was something I've wanted to do for a while, just a skill to learn and lockdown finally gave me the chance to do so. It is an excellent course, I love the fact you can do it in your own time and at your own pace, which very much suited me! Very easily set out and easy to follow. I would definitely recommend it to anyone! Awesome work BSL!
