It's embarrassing seeing people overlook this great course and only caring about whether student discounts can be achieved.
You need to be with people or at least a person to learn BSL properly, it isn't a language that lends itself to distance learning. I've taught BSL level one and two and know people that tried this way. Also the certificate isn't worth the paper it's printed on.

Are you stating that it is impossible to learn BSL properly alone? Define …Are you stating that it is impossible to learn BSL properly alone? Define "properly".All you have done with your post is to deter people from learning, which was presumably not your aim. Unless you are worried people learning online means less money for you if you still teach it or intend to do so again in future.


Wow! No I can't be bothered to define properly to you. Do some research yourself if you're that bothered which I doubt you really are.

Big jump to suggest I'm deterring people from learning, just suggesting that from experience, distance learning a visual language doesn't equip a person to converse compared to a person that has had face to face learning.

Nope I don't teach anymore so not earning anything from promoting classes.

You should take up the course then when you have your 'qualification' I will happily take you to a deaf club and watch you try and communicate effectively.

Yeah, I was going to say the same about the cert. All these cheap online courses with a cert, the cert is just junk from a nobody institute... and you usually have to pay extra to get the cert.

There's plenty of level 1 BSL courses around the country, should be one near you. Only go for Signature approved courses if you want the qualification to mean anything going for a job though.
This is great I’ve always wanted to learn properly and hopefully this will also help my son to learn too Thank You.

I'm vaguely interested in doing something like as it would be something useful to have as part of my job, although it's no where near a requirement. I would never have to time or want to be totally honest to do the full course at uni/elsewhere so is this worth doing as even a rough guide towards BSL?

You're better off doing a Signature level 1 course, this course qualification is worth nothing vocationally. You can do a deaf awareness course which will include some BSL, that takes a lot less time.
Cheap as this course is it still costs more than £1 per hour - and I don't know of any language you can expect to master in under 10 hours
Pixette23rd Feb

Doesn't work for me


This one does ...

Try this code instead: ONE10FEB.

Your welcome, lol. :-D
satan666wayne23rd Feb

Cheaper Direct not using grouupon


Only IF when going 'direct' you use this code: ONE10FEB instead?.

Otherwise the OP's one will rather prove to be a tad bit cheaper instead ...
The OneEducation £10.99 code I've previously mentioned twice above already (eg. code: ONE10FEB), is only valid until 28th February 2019, until 23:59pm).

And it's site wide as well!! (so NOT just for the Sign Language course/courses alone ... )

So fill your boot's, yes, but use it wisely.

Enjoy your Day everyone.

"You can do a deaf awareness course which will include some BSL, that takes a lot less time."

I'm in London, so wouldn't mind to have an idea such thing's around me, etc ... thanx.

In London there's a massive deaf community so they're should be loads, I'll ask a Interpreter friend of mine, he lives in London.

Kashim28th Feb

Try the code secret


I thought that that code was 'secret' too, or something ...

Hehehehehehe.
Sent an email to them complaining that the code didn't work and got told to use mothersday which takes it to 9.99 (11.99 with VAT). This code does work.

Did anyone make use of this code in the end?, or ... lol.
I really wish I could find the time in my life right now to do this... what a great price to learn the basics / intermediate level of a new language!! Would look great on your C.V. as well - could help you to get in front of any competition when going for a new job HEAT!
