Great online course

This was a very good course to do online , you could do it in your own time and have as many goes as you want. I really enjoyed doing this picking up some new skills and being able to show what I've learned to my family and friends. I can now hopefully use these skills confidently when i go back to work as i work in a school as a teaching.assistant.

Excellent introduction course to those who are interested in the basics of BSL. From this course I am now able to have a basic conversation with a BSL user and to understand basic conversations between signers. The online version is great as you can do it in your own time whenever you want, you dont have to cancel other arrangements once every week as well as you save time and money on transport. The price of the course itself is cheap... The programme is easy to follow and I learnt a lot indeed. I will definitely recommend it to everyone!

An introduction to sign language is incredible value for money, it is interesting and lots of fun and the format makes learning really easy. I would recommend that everyone should sign up for this course, even if you dont have any one in your family or friends who are deaf, it is an excelent starting point in understanding BSL, people want to learn a new language for when they travel to different countries, and some languages are taught in school to equip children with the tools to communicate with people from different countries, which of course is a positive thing, yet BSL is not part of any curriculum that i am aware, and therefore hearing children are taught how to communicate in French, German etc. but BSL which would help everyone to communicate within there own communities promoting inclusion of all deaf people is not taught as part of the curriculum. I find this very strange, especially after using this course and seeing how much fun it is to learn, i am sure given the opportunity all children would enjoy learning this exciting language. Finally i would like to say that Simon who is the main point of contact, with regards any concerns, provided extremly quick responses to any questions put to him and consistanly from day one provided outsanding customer service. Dont think about doing this course, just do it!!!

Unable to go to a taught class due to a back injury, this has been brilliant. The lessons are presented well & explained clearly. Staff are friendly & always helpful. It is also very good value for money. It is difficult to write a review & do the course justice. I guess the highest praise I can give it is that, in a relatively short space of time, it has helped me decide that I want to become a BSL interpreter. Would recommend this to anyone & everyone. Whether you want a career change or just to have another skill, it is well worth it. Im quite sad its all over! FANTASTIC!!!!

I really enjoyed taking part in this course . I am currently studying for BSL Level I at Blanche Neville in North London and have found it extremely useful to have this course to follow in my own time at home. I have found using books to learn sign very difficult so it was great the way the video clips were available for repeating and extra understanding - have really benefitted from this programme and would recommend it to other beginners .

I really liked doing this course and now want to go on to do further BSL classes in my city. The site is easy to understand and navigate and the video demonstrations are very clear. Id definitely recommend you to sign up if you have an interest in learning BSL.

I have been asked to say a few words about the course, and I am delighted to do so. I havent had such a fabulous time learning and going through the lessons as I did for a long time. To be able to re-do all of them time after time was not only helpful but very encouraging to see how far I had come. My most favourite person in the whole world at this moment is SIMON, who has not only been a great help but has shown such patience and kindness to me all along. I cant wait for level 2 to become available, but until then I want to thank every one for making this online course possible for me. Online is the very best way, at least for me, to learn. I dont get frightened of competition or haveing to keep up. Thank you all again, and God Bless Ann 100 out of a 100

This course is excellent. It is described as an introduction, but at the end of it you will certainly be able to communicate, in a very basic way, with deaf people using BSL. The course not only teaches many shortcuts in the language but, most importantly I feel, equips you with enough skills to learn more by using what you now have. Excellent value for money.
