What our Level 3 students are saying…

“Studying BSL Level 3 (Signature) with Dot Sign Language was a highly enjoyable and enriching experience for me.

Though a challenging step up, it was great to gain more in depth knowledge about the Deaf community, it’s culture and history.

The passion and patience of my teacher Kathleen helped and encouraged me throughout the year immensely. I can wholeheartedly recommend this course.”
