Online classes vs Evening classes

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 :-)

I started again because maybe around a month ago, I had a couple of customers come into a pharmacy I was working at who were deaf, and to communicate with them I was writing on a piece of paper and
