I have just completed my sign language course! It was a really fun and interesting experience which I'm glad I decided to do. I did it at my own pace and in my own free time. It feels extremely rewarding to be able to now understand sign language. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

Really fun, easy way to learn British Sign Languge!!! I picked it up n now time and I can use my skills and knowledge to help me wok with all pupils within school
IMAGEKatie Powsey - 02 June 2008

An absolutely brilliant way to learn and be assessed. From knowing nothing, this online course has given me the knowledge and confidence to sign to others. I am now really looking forward to enhancing my knowledge and skills with the backing of all that I have learnt here. I will definanlty be recommending this to anyone who wants to learn BSL. Thank you.
IMAGEMat Powell - 02 June 2008

Simon: Just want to thank you for the course. I had no prior experience of signing at all and it has really proved very interesting and easy to learn with your video clips. The course is a really good starting point and I hope to be able to take it further and perhaps get a qualification soon. Thanks, Caroline McCreight
IMAGECaroline McCreight - 27 May 2008

I loved this course! It has really inspired me to learn more. I have been helped by an employee at work to consolidate my learning and we sign together at work so I owe her a big thank you too! Thanks also to simon for signing, you did a great job! The only down side was that I kept losing the website at times I dont know if it was due to the connection or what. Saving as I went along helped though. I will be purchasing the Cd Rom as I want to learn more! Thanks for opening up my world!
IMAGECaron sanders-crook - 24 May 2008

This course has been very informative, well laid out and very well presented. Simons method of teaching has been the needed link between getting myself started at learning the basics of BSL. I would definitely recommend this to any person who is intested in BSL. Personal thanks to Simon for using the initiative to set-up such a good course. Cheers! Matt, Plymouth.
IMAGEMatthew Carey - 17 May 2008

I was so excited to find this course online. I didnt need my own computer at home as I could access the course online at my local library with no downloads needed. Within 3 days I was able to hold a one on one conversation with deaf relatives. Previoulsy Id not had the confidence to try and with no local BSL course was stuck. Now Im loving it and am even planning a holiday with deaf family. Im so gratefull to this course and hope they might be more advanced online courses I can do next. Its so easy to learn this way.
IMAGEMelanie Wing - 17 May 2008

This is a fantastic introductory course in BSL. I will definately continue studying - Thank you!

IMAGEEmma-Louise Morrison - 02 March 2008

Thank you so much - I really enjoyed this course. I liked being able to re-watch videos lots of times so that I could finger spell with the video. I feel confident signing at work now!
IMAGEAnn Pickersgill - 27 February 2008

This is a brilliant course for beginners- easy to navigate and quick to learn. I started the course 4 days ago and have just completed it. I really enjoyed it and now want to take it further. Thanks for making it both easy and fun to learn BSL.

I have just finished the course, I really enjoyed it and have decided to go to the next step, the course was real value for money.
IMAGELesley Harraway - 21 February 2008

I think the course is brilliant and really helps to boost your confidence. I would advise anyone interested in BSL to complete this online course.
IMAGEKatie Homer - 05 February 2008

I found this really helpful as a hearing person wishing to talk to Deaf friends at church. I feel the combination of an online Course and the opportunity to practice in the real world gave me the incentive to make a start, even though I lack confidence with my signing. I would reccommend the course to anyone who also has the opportunity to use what the learnt in real situations.
IMAGEAvril Smith - 28 January 2008

I have really enjoyed doing this course and would advise anyone who is thinking about doing it to do it, I thought that it would be really hard to do and that i wouldnt be able to do it ,but surprised myself how i managed.I am really proud of myself for achieving this course and hope to go further, so do it and enjoy.
