I have thought of trying out sign language for some time but it wasn't until I developed hearing problems of my own that I took the plunge. This is a great introductory course which was easy to follow and complete. Using this as a base line I hope to advance to level two if I can get in somewhere. Well worth the money and recommended to anyone who wants to communicate with others.

Amazing Course!

What a productive way to spend my quarantine! I have always waned to learn a little sign language, but just never got around to it until now. I'm so glad I did this course. the videos are easy to follow and very informative. Well worth the time.

Always wanted to learn!

I have really valued this course. I've always wanted to learn BSL. We use some makaton and couple of signs at home for my younger brother, but doing this course has given me more signs to teach him, and has really helped his vocabulary and speech come along. I have been learning during lockdown, weekly with friends over Skype, and we have loved being able to regularly meet and practice together. This has been a really invaluable kick-start for us to start learning, and we can't wait to learn more BSL! Thank you to all the team who have created this course.

Great introduction to BSL

This course has been so helpful in providing a basic introduction to BSL, and igniting a passion to learn more. I have now signed up for a face to face BSL L1 course locally which starts in September. I very much recommend this course for anyone wanting to begin their BSL journey.
IMAGECatherine Szymanskyj - 23 June 2020

Engaging and Informative

Cannot fault this course. It's so useful and I have had a great time learning the content. It's taught and tested in a way that you can follow easily, and it's good to learn at your own pace. The final assessment itself actually shows how far you've come!
IMAGESelina Ellis - 23 June 2020

Wonderful Course, Great Skill to Learn

I had great fun completing this course during the lockdown period. It's perfect for working at your own pace, the course is very comprehensive whilst also feeling easy to understand and not overwhelming. Would REALLY recommend!!
IMAGEC McCarthy - 23 June 2020

Would highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking of starting BSL. With easy to use visual guides supported with a description most of the time, its easy to learn and revise.

IMAGECharlotte - 21 June 2020

Great lockdown learning!

Completed the course with my 6 year old and 11 year old during our homeschooling in lockdown. My 6 year old loved the quizzes at the end of each subject to reinforce her learning. My 11 year old answered all of the final assessment questions by herself and got 100% so the programme definitely works!
IMAGEHannah - 19 June 2020

Completed the Introduction Course

I completed the Introduction course while in lockdown. I found it extremely informative, easy to learn with the help of the slides and they gave me the necessary information to continue my learning.

Really simple but effective format. Broken down into manageable chunks. Great to include medical section as I work in healthcare. Highly recommend.

Great Course!

Really amazing course, I have thoroughly enjoyed working through this during lockdown and feel I have been able to use this time wisely. The course is so flexible I could fit it around working at home. It has been a great form of CPD and I have always wanted to learn more about BSL, this course was brilliant for that. I would love to be able to incorporate BSL into lessons. I would definitely recommend this course to others!
IMAGEHannah Miles - 18 June 2020

Brilliant for beginners

I decided to purchase this course to help me practise sign language during lockdown since my BSL level 1 course was put on hold. It’s definitely worth getting this if you want to refresh your basic knowledge or you’re a beginner to sign language.
IMAGEJasmine - 17 June 2020

BSL course

this course has thoroughly helped me. At first i thought it would be hard to find a course to teach me Sign at a low cost so i was very lucky to find this one! i would definitely recommend
IMAGEMia - 16 June 2020

Superb-Life changing

I have loved every minute of this course and will definitely continue learning BSL. I now have so much admiration for anyone who can sign well, we should be teaching it in schools to pupils. Its been an amazing experience!
IMAGEJoy - 16 June 2020
