Complete Beginner - Whats the Best Way To Learn/Do a Course?


Recommended Posts

Hello folks

 

I've done a bit of research into various level 1 courses and I'm finding it all very confusing, plus the cost differences are amazing. 

What is the best way for a complete beginner to learn BSL?  Is it ok to do the online level 1 then go onto level 2 in a class, or is it better to do the class from level 1 so one gets the hand forms correct?

I'm thinking of doing a taster session first and see how I get on, then do level 1, or is it possible to skip that level and go into level 2 if you know the hand forms?

 

I've seen courses at Universities (Kings is £310 each part, with level 1 divided into 3 parts and as such it's a costly £930 for the complete course), compared to the online BSL course of £20.  Then the local adult education does something called the prelevel 1s and 2s at £126 and £158.

 

Please help, I'm on a minimum wage so can't afford the huge cost of some of these course.  If I like the BSl I hope to take it further through the courses, so a long journey (I presume to level 6).

    • Hello I'm Rachel and I have just begun learning BSL. My interest to learn BSL is because of my uncle, who was born deaf. I can do some very basic signs to communicate with him but want to be able to communicate more with him.

    • I started to learn BSL during the first lockdown. I'm a student pharmacist and saw that I could get the course at a discount. I did it pretty solidly for around a month, but then just kind of stopped learning.  I stopped for a little under 2 years, then picked it up again around a week ago. 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
