British Sign Language (BSL) is a visual language used by individuals with hearing difficullties in the United Kingdom to communicate with each other and with anyone else who understands BSL. It uses a combination of hand gestures, facial expressions, and body language to convey meaning and is recognised as an official language in the UK.

Some of the best ways of learning British Sign Language involve finding a tutor, or using online resources (such as our British Sign Language course). The key is to be patient but persistent in your learning, and immerse yourself in this transformative method of communication.

The time it takes to learn BSL can vary depending on factors such as an individual's learning style, frequency of practice, and prior experience with sign language. Generally, it takes several months to achieve basic proficiency, and several years to become fluent. Our online British Sign Language course should take around 150 hours to complete and will give you a solid foundation and basic understanding of BSL, allowing you to take part in everyday conversation.
