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?

I'm going to go with a website called The Course Mix, they have levels available in BSL and is accredited by the CPD certificate upon completion. 

Hi @Helen McConnell I am looking on The Course Mix too - BSL lvl 2 and 3 have been reduced by 94% which is a steal. Im going to enrol now.

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 -

https://www.bslcourses.co.uk/

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.

Although none of them use signing to communicate, they rely on hearing aids and lip reading.  I would greatly appreciate any assistance whilst I am learning to sign to ensure I am communicating clearly and can't wait to have a conversation with you. I have always wanted to learn BSL and am here to make friends. Please excuse me in my pyjamas fo
    • Hi, I'm Helen and I've been a teaching assistant for many years. I've worked in Pre-School, Primary and now I am a Specialist English TA in a High School. I am also hard of hearing as I lost the ability to hear in my right ear when I had the mumps aged 7. Growing up I did not consider my loss of hearing a problem but I now realise that it has definately shaped the person I have become. I listen more than talk; I'm a people watcher rather than joining in and I'm not a leader but a supporter. Crow

    • Hello all,  My name is Maria and I have just started to learn BSL. I started learning when i was a teenager but had to stop due to other commitments but I always had the intention to come back to this. I would like to be able to make connections to other people who use BSL - I have a firm belief that in order to fully engage and a learn any language its important to have someone you can practice and learn with.  Thank you for reading this and good luck to everyone who is just starting
