Excellent course

Excellent course and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit. I have always wanted to learn BSL but never had the opportunity until I came across this course. Easy to follow, relevant topics, very clear set up and video clips. Also accredited which is a bonus for my CV. No hesitation is recommending the course.

Brilliant Course

I am so happy I chose to take this course! Not only did it teach me the basics of BSL but it taught me things about the Deaf community that I would never have known otherwise. I feel like I would now be confident enough to join an evening course and further my knowledge/language skills even more.
