Thought I'd give this a go as I already knew how to finger sign, and a deaf friend has taught me a few words. I have thoroughly enjoyed this easy way of learning and now I'm considering taking it to the next level, Thank you

Such a wonderful course - a fabulous introduction to sign language and what it is all about. It gives you a grasp on the grammar and structure and a lot of vocab so you can start signing whole sentences - which feels good! Thank you so much for making this course - I feel a sense of achievement now Ive finished but sad as it was exciting to learn! 🙂

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.

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!
IMAGEAlison - 18 May 2017


Really enjoyed doing the introductory course. I've always wanted to learn sign language and this has really helped me begin to understand it. The tutorials were clear and helpful and I have learnt so much. Thank you!
IMAGENatalie - 16 May 2017


I wanted to learn BSL for years but living abroad it was tricky. With this course, I was able to achieve my little dream! I did it at my pace in the evenings from the comfort of my sofa and it couldn't have been easier or more enjoyable. Thank you so much. Worth every penny. Now I've passed, I'm itching to practice what I've learnt before I forget everything :oD If you're thinking of doing it, don't hesitate - you wont regret it!
IMAGEJuliet - 13 May 2017

Looking to start? Start here!

I could not recommend this course highly enough. As well as providing an excellent introduction to learning BSL and how to communicate in the language, it also provides extra information on the history of the language, Deaf culture and charitable organisations.
At a reasonable and affordable price, this course opens the door to anyone wanting to study BSL, allowing them to do so in their own time and at their own pace.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course, and am now looking forward to expanding my knowledge.
IMAGEPaul Brown - 29 April 2017

Great introduction to BSL

I really enjoyed this on line course! I learnt at my own pace and found it easy to pick it up. I would highly recommend it to others. I am very much looking forward now to continuing my learning.
IMAGEjane - 26 April 2017

A great introduction to BSL

It's good to have a course that you can do in your own time and not feel under pressure. Easy to follow and enjoyable to do.
IMAGECathy Wicks - 22 April 2017

I have learnt so much!! Absolutely amazing!

This course has been so great, thorough and clear. I have learnt so much and always felt like I was progressing and learning. I wanted something new to learn and this is a massive achievement for me. Thank you so so much, because now I have the oppurtunity to discover much more about the world, and communicate and help any deaf person I meet. Thank you!!!!!
IMAGEAlice Lord - 17 April 2017

It was incredible!!

I am a teenager and i have always loved watching people sign but i could never find anything or anywhere that i could learn but now i have done this course i completed it within 4 days!!! i have a really good memory and love to learn and remember new things and this is at the top of my list. it is well worth the money and is so much fun to learn so i would definitely recommend and i will definitely be carrying on signing at a more difficult level soon.
IMAGEMillie Hope - 06 April 2017

Introduction to BSL, BRILLIANT!

I currently work with a SEN child who has very little speech, we have been using Sign a Long but I found this course more informative and enjoyable. I hope to continue onto the next level
IMAGEHayley - 29 March 2017

IMAGESimon Ramsay - 22 February 2017

So Interesting

since graduating university in Leeds I have always wanted to keep learning on what little time I have outside of work. BSL is so awesome and I even got to use it in work with a small child just a few days ago which was amazing. Lots of content for the price and I will go on to keep studying it more in the future, thank you very much!
IMAGEMatthew Smith - 21 February 2017

As i have recently got a job working with an SEN child, i thought it would be useful to learn basic BSL. Thoroughly enjoyed learning sign language and would definitely recommend. Fantastic price too
IMAGEJenna Poole-Hayle - 10 February 2017

Brilliant and fun!

I have thoroughly enjoyed doing this BSL course. I'm actually going to miss it doing it, but now I have the basics under my belt I'm definitely going to continue to learn more signs.
IMAGECheryl - 05 February 2017

This was a wonderful course! Very helpful and easy to follow. Quite short as it teaches you the basics, but I still feel I learnt a great deal! Great value for money and I will definitely be telling my friends and family about this. Thank you!!
