Excellent course!!

I had lots of fun completing this course during lockdown! I am ten years old and I did it without anyone helping me, it was fun and easy to learn!
I definitely recommend this course!
IMAGEChene - 12 July 2020

This course is an excellent introduction to British Sign Language. It's easy to follow, at your own pace and covers a wide range of vocabulary for the basis of conversations. My daughters are doing the course too, so we help each other to make connections which help us remember what we've learned. Thoroughly recommend it!
IMAGEAngela Pym - 10 July 2020


I started this during lockdown as it was something that has always interested me. And I am so glad I did it! Very easy and accessible for beginners, and I have definitely learnt skills for life during this course! 100% recommend to anyone!

Brilliant Course

An amazing accessible course that was so easy to navigate and understand. Well explained and tutor signs very easy to follow. Would definitely recommend this course to friends and family interested in learning BSL.
IMAGESamantha Jones - 02 July 2020


As a member of the 'shielding' group I found myself with a lot of time on my hands. I have always wished I could 'sign' and now there was no excuse but to have a go. I have not been disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed learning a new skill. I hope to carry it further and get better at signing and see progression as part of the challenge. A great course and money well spent.
IMAGERichard Woolf - 01 July 2020

Great Intro into sign language

I have always wanted to start to learn sign language and found this really clear and easy way to learn at my own pace. This has a great course structure as you work your forward and start to put it together. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

IMAGESophie Thomson - 30 June 2020

Excellent course!

An accessible and great value for money introduction to BSL. The course is split into sections, with mini-assessment after each, which makes it easy to plan around your own time. I recommend learning the basics - you never know when they will come in useful!
IMAGEChristine Watson - 30 June 2020


This course was really easy and enjoyable and I have managed to learn so much in a short period of time! I now feel more confident to communicate with other BSL users! I highly recommend this course!
IMAGEJamie Chandler - 29 June 2020


Considering this is meant to be an Introduction to British Sign Language, I felt the course provided plenty of signs. As a SEND educator I feel this has been invaluable to learn and I am delighted to have this as part of my skill set. Thank you for making this so accessible. Well worth it!
IMAGERachael - 28 June 2020

A great introduction to an amazing skill!

The online course was great: you could access it at any time, re-visit anything you want to revise and see yourself as you signed to make sure you were doing it right. The assessments were painless and gave a good indication as to when you were confident/ ready to move on. All of the topics were very relevant to anyone who wishes to use sign language and there were great links included to extra resources.
IMAGEChloe Copeland - 27 June 2020

Great Introduction to BSL

I would definitely recommend this course. The instructions are so clear and the course is delivered at a great pace to allow you plenty time to go over each subject. I especially liked the option to slow down the videos so I could really study the more difficult signs. A great use of time in lockdown!
IMAGEAmy - 27 June 2020

Excellent course

What a great course. I've loved it working through it, being able to go at my own pace, and repeat sections if I need to.
Hopefully I can remember the hundreds of signs learnt.
