Invaluable

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!

Hi, the course is great, it has helped me in many ways. I have placed a poster up at work and introduced a group from work to sign on. Guess what? They have! I even recommend the CD ROM. Thank-you.
IMAGEJacqueline Jourdan-Stoles - 26 July 2007

I have enjoyed this course immensely. It taught me a good amount of BSL and I was able to take it at my own pace. I particularly appreciated being able to go back and revise previous lessons whenever I chose. Simon the instructor was clear and precise, which was very helpful for a beginner, and always responded quickly to any questions I had. I am looking forward to learning more BSL with the Sign to Me CD-Rom that just arrived in the post!
IMAGENaomi Weir Lyden - 07 July 2007

Having just completed the Online Course Id like to say what an enjoyable and encouraging start it has been for me in learning BSL. All the signs are introduced in useful, thematic contexts which makes them easy to assimilate and use together in a practical way. I found that each signed word and phrase was presented so clearly, accompanied by a careful description, that it is possible to understand exactly how to reproduce them correctly from the start, and this has built up my confidence to start using them. The assessment tests after each unit were particularly good for finding out how well I had learned the new material and gave a foretaste of what it will be like when I am able to converse with Deaf people in real life. Im now looking forward to building up my vocabulary using the Sign to Me CD and then to join an evening class in the autumn. David Kennard, Somerset

i have just finished the bsl course. the most amazing course i have ever done. i used sign language when talking to a friend and it was so amzing that i could communicate with her. i could see the hapiness in her eyes as we signed to eachother. i would most definately recommend this course to anybody. it is not something that is impossible as you can access it at anytime. The best course for me!! I am going to continue studying BSL. This is my starting point. Thanks xxxx
IMAGESamantha Dennis - 02 July 2007

IMAGEvictoria welsh - 19 June 2007

IMAGECarol Battersby - 12 June 2007

I have just finished this course and would recommend it to anyone, I run a hotel and on the odd occasion have deaf people stay here, they were extremely pleased to have someone to talk to if and when they needed something. The price was so cheap for what I got I couldnt believe it. I learnt the basic finger spelling when I was 15 and always wanted to learn more - Im so glad I did - thankyou for making it happen.
IMAGEnicola burch - 16 May 2007

This course was brilliant im a student childrens nurse and can now communicate to deaf patients thank you!!
IMAGENikki Wilkinson - 21 April 2007

Absolutely fantastic! Loved the course and loved the price. Brilliant introduction to BSL, and excellent taster course which will leave you wanting more!
IMAGELaura Bowyer - 17 April 2007

I studied a beginners BSL course at college many years ago and wanted to refresh my memory, in the hope of continuing it further. The course was great, very well put together and you can do it in your own time. My problem now is that there is nowhere teaching the next level in my area. Please do a follow up course for those of us who want to continue learning this valuable skill.
IMAGEAndi Daly - 14 April 2007

This course is fantastic. Everyone is impressed with my speed of learning. I keep signing to everyone whether they are deaf or not. Colleagues in school are very interested in learning as a result of this. Brilliant, a great idea.
IMAGEShirley Fitzpatrick - 27 March 2007

i like this program alots and think that it is suitable foe people of my age ( nine years of age ).
IMAGEAmaka Ananti - 12 March 2007

This course is excellent value for money- please keep it so for as long as possible because it makes it so accessible to everyone.
IMAGELynne Faulconbridge - 04 March 2007

A real confidence-builder for a complete novice like myself! This absorbing course not only teaches basic British Sign Language in a friendly, easy-to-understand way, it also makes the pupil try to grasp an understanding of what it means to be Deaf or hard of hearing. I am a (hearing) veterinary surgeon and will find the signs I have learnt from this course particularly valuable in helping me work with owners of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. It has inspired me to seek local BSL courses- I hope to start BSL Level 1 this September at my local night school.
IMAGELynne Faulconbridge - 04 March 2007

Excellent course very useful and interactive. very useful that you can do it again and again. posting your thoughts and ideas is good too.

Sign to me FANTASTIC would recomend to everyone of all ages brilliant to use as a game with my grandaughter she enjoys learning sign it is great.
IMAGEDoreen Fenton-hale - 24 February 2007

Hello everyone, I have just finished the course online, brilliant. I have also purchased Sign to me. I work with people who need this sign support and have found this course to be very intresting and helpfull, well done Simon would love another course please they are like a good book cant put it down.

IMAGEDoreen Fenton-hale - 24 February 2007

Wanted to learn how to sign. the course made it so easy and helped me pick it up alot quicker than i thought it would. U have the sign in for a year tho it only took me a few weeks to complete, however once u have finished the course you are able to go back to any section and re-cap as often as u like on any material! recommend it to ANYONE, very well laid out, easy to use. easy to follow and very clean on what to do. not only do they show you how to do the sign but if you are unsure they also allow u to click on an explination on how to do it and give u useful tips on how to remeber certain signs. found it much easier than a classroom environment and worth every penny!!
IMAGEJennie McKie - 23 February 2007

Thank you Simon. I have really enjoyed the course and I know that even though I have now finished it, its still available for me to refer back to.
IMAGENeil Hunter - 21 February 2007

i found this course both interesting and useful. It has enabled me to communicate better with a deaf child i have in my class and to teach him new signs as he is still learning them himself. thanks to a great introductory course.
