As well as understanding the practical aspects of vocabulary and grammar, this course also gives students a more thorough knowledge with additional topics covered, such as the origins of British Sign Language, how it is used (not solely as a form of communication the hearing and speech impaired), and the grammatical structure of the British Sign Language, called the Topic Comment Structure and how it differs from its spoken counterpart.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
