  11. HI .. All. Im Maureen.. Ive joined this website because this on line course is amazing and encourages people to learn. Courses are now rare to find and are so expensive it puts people off learning.. This course is amazingly reasonably priced and has unlimited access for a year.. Its AMAZING . Congratulations and Well done to all the creators. Please send your web link to my website and facebook pages. My story in brief: I had wanted to learn to sign since I was a child of about 10 , (im 73 now) when I heard the story of Helen Keller and her teacher Anne Sullivan. I finally found a course when I was over 50 years old . I was eager to learn and encourage everyone else to learn sign language too . I started helping others. I've now been running a voluntary sign language group for 20 years... here in Southport. Merseyside. I run 2 classes every week and we have we also meet up at a local pub for Meal/ communicate/ sign with others and watch a subtitled film too. My group/ website is www.practicemakesperfect.org.uk and has had over 38,000 individual visitors since 2004. I share appropriate video clips to our facebook users so that they can learn and practice for their BSL exams no matter what level. Another of my facebook pages is British signing on Skype which brings BSL learners together from anywhere so that they can practice and improve. If you dont use it .YOu loose it.. after all Practice Makes Perfect. Maureen
