Easy to follow and understand

This has been a fantastic online course, easy to follow and understand. The videos are very helpful and can be set at a speed suitable to your own learning. I also enjoyed the finger spelling quiz.
It was helpful to be able to recap at any time and learn at my own pace and fit around work/home time. I even got to use a few of the signs which made all the effort worthwhile. Thank you for a very informative and enjoyable course. I look forward to putting the new found learning to good use.

Helpful and Interesting Course

I enrolled on the introductory BSL course as I was working in SEND schools where children used BSL and Makaton. This course has helped me to learn how to communicate with these children and understand their needs more than I did before. It is definitely something I will take with me into my future teaching career and I would recommend to anyone who has spare time and would like to learn BSL. Thank you!
IMAGEEleanor - 19 February 2021


Really great course to do at your own pace and to fit in with your daily routine. I really enjoyed it and plan to use in my line of work. East to follow instructions and videos. Love the fact there's a mirror tool so you can see yourself signing. Would highly recommend. Great value for money.
