Learn British Sign Language The EASY Way!

What a delight. I found this DVD very informative and helpful and so easy to follow. I was particularly pleased that there was not commentary or music. This helped me to focus totally on lip reading and following the signing. I was pleased that Sonia produced the programme without any frills as there were no distractions and I surprised myself to find that I was able to learn very quickly. Well done. I look forward to the advanced edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic DVD - Just what I was looking for. 24 Nov 2008
I was recommended this DVD by a friend as I have recently started my 1st level in British Sign Language. I am really pleased that I heeded my friend's advice and bought the DVD set. It covers so many topics as well as an extensive range of vocabulary, in a no nonsense, practical way. As a complete beginner, it took me through and incorporated different sections of practise material before leading onto the next topic, to make sure that I could both produce and receive information in BSL. I am sure my progress to the 2nd level in BSL will benefit because of this. Thank you so much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to be doing the trick 5 July 2009
I've been working my way through this DVD and I'm surprised how much I'm learning. I've been keen to learn BSL for a long time, having failed to learn any other languages! It's eerily silent but obviously that's by design. It's very good and I'm learning a lot, so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars British Sign Language 8 Sep 2009
I have recently bought this as I am due to start Level 1 BSL along with a friend of mine. I have looked at lots of other DVD's out there and was very surprised to see the amount of content in this set...it seems to go over and beyond the Level 1 course so there is scope for further learning.

Knowing that the presenter is an Interpreter themselves I had reassurance that they knew what they were talking about!

There is no sound on the DVD which I was pleased about because it enabled me to really focus on the signs and phrases being being made and encouraged me to really concentrate on the recap sessions.

Totally addictive!

1.0 out of 5 stars ??? 19 Oct 2008
By RosieB
So does this DVD have subtitles? Yet again Amazon are ignoring the needs of a significant number of potential customers by leaving the 'DVD features' section blank when it should contain information such as 'subtitled' - how long do I have to go on complaining about this??????? :(
