Fantastic introductory course

I really enjoyed this course. Its engaging, interesting, and almost addictive. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to gain an insight into BSL.

One suggestion I would make is to have more challenging quizzes regarding conversation and grammar. For example having a vocab quiz or just individual signs and then a conversation quiz made up of full sentences at the end of each section. Sometimes it felt that the quizzes were too easy. The final quiz was more interesting and challenging and I think you should introduce more quizzes like that as that is essentially how to best learn the language in practice.

Otherwise its fantastic, thank you for providing it!

One of the best online learning classes I have done. Clear and easy to follow. The only improvement that I would like to see is that if you do get a question wrong for them to let you know what the right answer was - as this way you are able to learn from your mistakes easier. I would without a doubt recommend this to anyone!
IMAGEChelsey - 19 December 2020

Fun and addictive!!

A wide range of phrases and words learnt, easy to understand and the videos were clear and regular quizzes keep to you thinking!

Educational Course

I really enjoyed learning everything on this course which as heighten my knowledge which is excellent. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn sign language. only thing i would suggest going forward is to have more conversational videos putting what you have learnt so you can see the flow of how things should be done and in what order. But other than that fantastic.

Introducing BSL

I thought the course covered a huge amount of vocabulary and the assessments were challenging but not so difficult that they would put you off.

Highly recommended ???
IMAGEAdam Millington - 30 November 2020

Amazing course!

I enrolled onto this course mid-summer this year to refresh my memory of BSL from 2 years ago. It is such a useful tool to recap vocab and the syntax of questions - and all for a decent price! I am still currently referring back to the contents of this course as I am now working towards a Level 1 qualification in BSL. I would definitely recommend it to those that want to learn something new and/or discover other ways of communication whilst learning about the culture.
IMAGEShavana - 29 November 2020


I thought the course was excellent! It was great value for money, it was clearly laid out and explained well, but it was challenging too, which made it feel like I was actually learning and benefitting from it.
IMAGEFreddie Schunmann - 24 November 2020


This was a perfect course, especially to be able to learn at home during lockdown. There are different lessons with easy to understand videos teaching you different signs. Would definitely recommend.
