Exciting news here at BSL base camp; a new course has been added!
The introduction to BSL course is ideal for those who want to dip their toe into the water and learn a bit of British Sign Language. With fingerspelling, numbers, colours and the weather as well as 5 other lessons, it is a great starter and ideal for those who want to learn a new skill, for, for example, their Duke of Edinburgh award skill section. It is great fun and learners can earn badges, complete quizzes and download resources.
If you have been wondering how to sign up to learn sign language, how to watch BSL videos or what badges you can earn but have been too shy to ask then you will be pleased to know that BSL Online now has its own ‘frequently asked questions’ page.
