Our Introduction to British Sign Language (BSL) is the perfect first step on your British Sign Language BSL journey.

The Introduction to British Sign Language course is designed for individuals who want to gain a foundation in BSL and learn about the deaf community. This is ideal for anyone who is curious to learn, as well as those who have a family member, student, colleague or customer who is deaf.

Our Introduction to BSL course is 10 weeks in length. Perfect for those who want to take their first steps to learning BSL without committing to a long term course. This course gives you a great foundation to move onto Level 1, as its content is modelled on Unit 101 of the Signature Level 1 specifications.
