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 :-)

    • Hello! My name is Casey. I want to learn more BSL. (ASL translation: I use ASL as my primary language but now I want to learn BSL) Thank you!

      I would appreciate if anyone would be willing to practice with me and correct my BSL signs.
    • Hey everyone!
      My name is Michelle and I am here to get to know some BSL users! I would love to get to know someone around my own age (23) to practice with, or to teach me.
      I have been learning on my own for some time now and I am very much still a beginner, but I am evolving, and I love the language and the culture.

      I am from Denmark and I am not just looking to practice, I am looking to make friends in the deaf community. Tell me about everything! The good, the bad..the fun!. I myself have not formally been to any BSL classes, but I joined in on some beginner lessons in Oxford last year, and I had a somewhat understandable conversation on BSL with the teacher.

      So please message me if you think it could be fun to learn me a thing or two about your life - or your own learning experience (or If you, you know, love cats, Harry Potter, Backpacking and Netflix...really get a hold of me! haha)
