Looking for next level - Level 2?


Recommended Posts

Hi There,

I just finished  the Level 1 course with British-Sign.co.uk and want to know where to go next with my signing education?

I really enjoyed how the course was set up with British-sign so something similar to that would be great and not too expensive...British-Sign were doing a deal where their £35 course could be done for a donation payment of as little as £3...I payed £15. 

Any ideas?

Word to the wise - I enrolled for the level 2 and level 3 courses on The Course Mix and so far I am disappointed and unimpressed. I have gone through the first 4 modules of lvl 2 and so far all I have done is go through online powerpoint slides with absolutely no signing.

I can recoup the cost of the courses through my employer but for anyone else I do not recommend signing up to the courses. The huge discount may draw you in but you'll be better of paying the full price elsewhere where there is actual signing involved and not just reading off a screen.

HI @Helen McConnell

So when you go into one of the modules - along the right hand side you will see a list of slides as per the screenshot below. I work in IT so creating slides in powerpoint and then rebranding them to appear a certain way is not that difficult to do and that seems to be the case here. The slides are very wordy and there is absolutely no signing throughout any of the modules I have done. There are illustrations of signing which are not actually very helpful since it would be so much better to see actual signing rather than having to imagine how it looks and potentially getting it wrong when you try and work it out.

Ill finish the courses since ive paid for them but I would not recommend them.

Hey guys, I’m now looking for the next level but finding it difficult to find as I’m looking for home learning, any ideas please

Hi @Mariam, try here -

they’re not cheap but the quality of the course is very good. Don’t go for any places offering a course at a silly cheap price otherwise you get what you pay for.

    • Hello everyone, I am new here, just started the BSL course. I have been looking to learn BSL for years ... with the lockdown, finally I decided. And I learning a lot and enjoying this online course.
    • Hi  I decided to set myself the challenge of learning sign language as I believe it is a valuable skill to have 
    • Hi Everyone, I have been learning sign on and off for a while now but have really gotten into learning again. My dad is half deaf and losing his hearing in his other ear now, however he doesn't sign! I think it just inspired me to research into BSL and organisation etc. I am also studying nursing so at some point in the future I will most likely use my sign knowledge in one way or another. Hope everyone is keeping well during these difficult times and I look forward to learning from these forums too!!(:
    • The main reason I’m learning is BSL is that I want to be a doctor. As a doctor I will have to communicate with lots of different people and I though it would be really valuable  for me to be able to communicate with a whole community of deaf and Hoh people. I also think being able to communicate in BSL will help me build trust with patients as I will be able to communicate in a way that suits them. Another big reason I want to learn BSL it’s that it’s really fun and I’ve always been fascinated by sign language. 
    • Everyone welcome to practice signing with Gary and I on Saturday 20th March, 11 o'clock. You can see Gary's video in the practice zone
    • It would be also be great to practice with other people here as well. I am looking forward to meeting others here.
    • Hi  My name is juliet Findlay. I have decided to sign because I am interested in gaining new skills and learning a new language.It is also a challenge. In these  challenging times he have a top to the new normal and also support those who are struggling.
    • Hi, my name is Charlotte and I’m currently learning level 2 BSL. Really struggling tbh. Especially following conversation, I seem to have a terrible short term memory!    If anyone has any tips or resources they used that was helpful, I would love to know. I would at least like to eventually get to level 3.  Thanks in advance, Charlotte
