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.

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.

    • I am the same - When I asked cambsdeaf they suggested choose a hand (preferably the one you would write with the most)  apparently it can get confusing so better just to choose one.  I chose left   but now i think ive made it more difficult as everyone else seems to sign the opposite. 
    • Hi, I'm at Uni aswell (though im 33!) I'm studying Early Childhood Studies about to start my second year in September alongside a new Teaching assistant job ! There's a few children who need further support and I have always wanted to learn BSL and I am happy to practice with you via computer! 
    • I'm Jackie or Jac , I would  like to understand  more about  sign language  and be able to converse at a basic level , hope maybe  someone  with a lot of patience can help me achieve  this 🤗
    • Im currently in uni in Leeds doing a course in childhood studies. Ive always wanted to learn BSL just never really had the time till now. Super excited with my progress but I haven't had the chance to practice it with another person so I don't actually know if im any good hahaha. If anyone is interested to practice over FT or discord or whatever let me know! 
    • Hello, im just starting to learn sign language, it’s hard to remember it all but I’m enjoying it.
    • Lol, I doubt I could teach you much, as I've already forgot most of it, and as they say, "if you don't use it, you lose it". and I haven't used BSL, in around 36 years, so much of it is lost, it just needs a refresher, to ignite it all. I would be interested in finding someone to 'refresh' my memory and to help build up speed.  My time zone is MST (Mountain Standard Time), which is currently 8hrs behind the UK, which would mean for the hours between 12pm and 6pm UK time, I would need to be
    • Hi, I’m Joy.  I’m a mum to two gorgeous boys aged 7 and 2. I have bad water damage to my left ear and so have self thought to lip read. However since masks have been in use I’ve felt so isolated as I can’t hear what people are saying so I just cut myself off. I was in a really bad place. I’ve since crawled my way back to feeling a little better and decided that I can’t let my hearing loss rule my life so here I am, trying very hard to learn BSL!
    • Hello everyone, I am still fairly new to BSL, so this might be a silly question, but I am a bit confused about the sentence structure. I'm doing the online course and in Lesson 3 I think, it said that the sentence structure is Object/Topic, Subject, Verb. But in Lesson 7 it's Time, Subject, Verb and Object.  Does that mean the structure is a bit less strict?
