Online classes vs Evening classes

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am really interested in learning BSL however I have looked at some of the Level 1 courses available and most start in September meaning I would have to wait a whole year to enroll and they are also really expensive. 

Has anyone learnt purely from the Online Courses and is it possible to self teach? I just wondered then if I wanted to progress to a course at Level 2 and gain the accredation for this does anyone know if this is possible without doing an evening level 1 course but by doing the online course? 

I would be grateful of any advice and suggestions – happy signing :-)

Hi Sarah,

I have only just started bsl learning, about 4 weeks in now, and doing a purely online course. I get videos each week to watch and go away and practice, and then I book a tutorial and have a skype tutorial where I am asked questions and I sign. It is all signing, which is great practice. The website is bslcourses.co.uk 

You can choose to not do the actual qualifications and just do the training. Because a tutor works with you, they agree that you can go onto the next one. I’ve decided to just do this and eventually go onto the nvq level 6 where I then would do the assignments. It is cheaper not having to do the qualifications in between. I guess if I decided to stop for any reason, I would probably do the exams at whatever level I was at.

Anyway, I am really loving it. I hope that helped!


Bec :-)

    • Hi Joanne, Yes it will, focus on technique and accuracy and speed will naturally come with time
    • Hi everyone, I am currently doing level 2, working on my presentation.  Loving signing but not the fastest and finding the flow difficult, suppose it will come with practice. 
    • I forgot to mention, I am hoping to learn London BSL.  I know some signs tend to vary by area, so hoping to learn the signs which are most prominent around London. Thank you~~
    • Hello, A bit about me: I'm 27. I have been studying BSL on my own for just under two months. My vocabulary is about 325 words + the alphabet. I would love to take a public class to further my skills (especially grammar!), but here's the catch: I live in japan!  So I'm looking for someone who has advanced level BSL to meet with once a week over Skype for lessons.  I am more than happy to pay for the private tutoring.  Would anyone here be interested in this, or know of a resource to find an online tutor?  Japan and UK timezones match up so that we could meet in the UK-morning/Japan-evening.   Thanks!
    • You're right, I somehow got confused with which fingers were up. I think the final sign is actually ASL for the number 9.
    • @Ferkel I don't understand your text, a little. I don't look for a sign 'T-shirt' in ASL, but meaning sings ON my T-shirt. I put the photo. Xoxo, Merry
    • Thanks for answer. Unfortunatly I don't have any context, It's just a T-shirt I bought in the usualy shop center. But I would like to know what my shirt is saying to the world. And the last sign is not D, I think I can use word 'opposed', look at the picture. It's D.     Xoxo, Mery
