Love It

My partners parents are both deaf and even though I pick up a little from them and have the 'BSL for dummies book' I would highly recommend this course super helpful and the regular assessments really help to solidify what has been learnt

    Once you have scored 85% on the assessments for each lesson, and the final assessment, you are awarded a certificate to show that you have completed the course.

    Our certificate is accredited by CPD.

    Assessments can be retaken as often as you like at no extra cost.

Really enjoyable

I have BSL Level 1 but have not used it for a very long time so wanted a refresher and this was perfect. Able to follow at a time and pace to suit. I would recommend to anyone wanting to start or refresh as it covers most of the key areas. Good value for money.

I have been asked to say a few words about the course, and I am delighted to do so. I havent had such a fabulous time learning and going through the lessons as I did for a long time. To be able to re-do all of them time after time was not only helpful but very encouraging to see how far I had come. My most favourite person in the whole world at this moment is SIMON, who has not only been a great help but has shown such patience and kindness to me all along. I cant wait for level 2 to become available, but until then I want to thank every one for making this online course possible for me. Online is the very best way, at least for me, to learn. I dont get frightened of competition or haveing to keep up. Thank you all again, and God Bless Ann 100 out of a 100

This course is excellent. It is described as an introduction, but at the end of it you will certainly be able to communicate, in a very basic way, with deaf people using BSL. The course not only teaches many shortcuts in the language but, most importantly I feel, equips you with enough skills to learn more by using what you now have. Excellent value for money.

As a senior Citizen, and over the years I have had hearing diifficulties through my occupation, which caused hearing damage. This course which I have done is extremely good, having the time to complete it earlier than reccomended, I have now enrolled to take up the Basic BSL course at College, as this course has given me added confidence, and knowlege.

What a great start to learning BSL. A very good value for money course and loads of support frm teh tutor. I made friends and found a forum where i was listened to with my assignment problems. The course was great as I worked through it at my own pace and completed all 7 assessments with 100% pass rate. being able to go over the courses and re-do them as many times as needed was very helpful and I look forward to purchasing more courses. Best wishes to you all. Jen Cook
