“I really enjoyed participating in the Taster Sessions, I wanted to dip my toe into BSL and found the sessions well run and fun to participate in. ‘It was amazing how many signs we covered in just 3 sessions and they were a great way to get interested in learning a new skill!” Jules Velati–Thank […]

“Learning BSL has given me a far greater insight into the Deaf World. It has helped me understand more about Deaf Culture and increased my ability and confidence to communicate with Deaf people.”
“BSL Level 3 has changed my life. I am now working as a full time teaching assistant at a bilingual BSL school, working with five deaf children… I owe my teacher, at Dot, a lot, she was incredibly patient. I would not have got this far without her.”
“The BSL Level 3 Project was a hugely positive step forward for me. It gave me confidence by learning alongside Deaf and hearing students and mixing with them socially. It has opened my mind to another culture and brought some wonderful people into my life. It has made me all the more determined to use my BSL in future work”.
