What our students are saying:
“Just finished Level 3 linguistics with Kathleen. So enthusiastic and encouraging, learnt loads of new vocabulary and plenty of time for signing practice. Linguistics was very thorough and I have a clear set of notes to study from. Looking forwards to next term :)”
“I decided to learn BSL to expand my skill set, and be able to better communicate with others. Kathleen Grehan was amazing, very patient and easy going. I arranged private one-to-one sessions and they were simply brilliant. I enjoyed the sessions and each week received a video of the signs I had learned to help me practice. I passed Level 1 and I am now planning to start Level 2 sessions shortly.”
