An excellent course. I've learnt a huge amount. Especially can now see the importance of facial expressions, body language and lip patterns in addition to the signing. Highly recommend.

Completed this year about a year ago, just came back on it to recap and omg it is still the best ever way to learn sign language, i have attended a class but got very nervous with all the people looking at me, with this you can learn when you want and at your own pace, you can do as much or as little as you want, when you want, highly highly recommend this course, just cant believe it is so cheap
IMAGEMaria Newton - 17 February 2011

A brilliant way to learn the basics in your own home. You can work at your own pace, re attempt quizzes if needed. Builds confidence and understanding. My sister wants to do it now!!
IMAGEJayne-Louise Jackson - 05 February 2011

IMAGEangela mulholland - 01 February 2011

This is the best ever!!! I did the course in less than three weeks. It was so easy to understand. I am definitely going to recommend it to my friends and family.
IMAGEStacy-Ann Evans - 22 January 2011

This course was simple, easy to use and so convenient. I cant believe how much it enabled me to pick up in such a short space of time. I would reccomend it to any one starting out to learn BSL.
IMAGESophie Whitley - 19 January 2011

This course is an excellent way to introduce yourself to British Sign Language. It enables you to login when you have the time; it fits in with your lifestyle and is simple to follow.
IMAGEDeborah Dare - 04 January 2011

This is an excellent course as an introduction to learning sign language. It is fun and easy to use whilst giving a good overview of basic conversational sign language. I have been learning with my family and so we were able to practice with each other. Im now studying BSL level 1, and I feel Ive greatly benefited from doing this course. And for the price, Id say its well worth it!
IMAGEjonathan sage - 30 December 2010

The course was great, a really good way to start out learning sign language
IMAGEJennifer Vaughan - 17 November 2010

I really enjoyed doing this course and found it really interesting and would love to go further with it and find out lots more. Great course can wait to start another.
IMAGESonia Caley - 04 November 2010

I enjoyed taking part in this course and especially liked the quiz sections as they helped me to see how good/bad I was doing! Wish there were more! The price of £19.99 isnt too high compared to cost of Level 1 BSL course so it is worth doing this course before tackling Level 1 as it prepares you well and you know what to expect.
IMAGEAnon - 17 October 2010

I really enjoyed this course. It is easy to follow and I really like the way you can go back to different sections as and when you like to jog your memory. It is a fantastic introductory course and I have now started an Introduction to BSL evening class and then am going on to do BSL Level 1. Thank you very much Simon - would highly recommend this course to anybody interested in learning sign!
IMAGELouise Rigby - 07 October 2010

The course was easy to follow and informative. Great value for money! I liked the fact you could do it at your own pace-no pressure. Will recommend it.
IMAGERachel Vann - 06 October 2010

Value for money.. I really enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning sign language. Five stars*****
IMAGENadaine Campbell - 30 September 2010

Really great value and very easy to follow. Highly recommended! If youre a beginner i would bear in mind that there is a great deal of regional variation in BSL, so dont panic if something youve learnt here isnt exactly as you might see it elsewhere. Good luck and have fun!
IMAGElee edwards - 29 September 2010

A fantastic course. I really enjoyed it and found it easy to learn. The helpful hints made me smile! Thank you. I was determined to get 100% and I did with hardly any second attempts.
IMAGEKaren Farrant - 27 August 2010

I would recommend this course to anyone. Learning sign language is something Ive wanted to do for a long time and this online course gave me the opportunity. Its really easy to follow and breaks things down into nice easy chunks to learn. Gives you a great footing for taking it further.
IMAGEHelen Young - 25 August 2010

This course had a very good structure which made it easy to learn at my own pace. The videos were easy to follow and I liked being able to do the assessments as many times as I wanted until I felt comfortable to move on. Overall it was a really good course, and I enjoyed learning BSL using ths site 🙂
