Great Fun

This was great fun and a very valuable tool to start learning BSL. I learnt a lot and feel confident I can follow some conversations, although people will need to sign slow to start.

Always wanted to learn sign language but could never find the time to do so with working and having a two year old. This is an amazing course that was very cheap but with alot of resources to use and could do at home in my spare time. Highly recommened and now I want to gain my level two.
