What I would highlight: The course was aimed at complete beginners (which we all were). It was delivered by an excellent teacher in a friendly, relaxed, easy to follow manner. We were a small group of 9 and with the support of the tutor we bonded well and we will continue our friendship. As the course was an introduction rather than a BSL Level certificated course it was quite informal and the tutor made it fun to learn! We are all now fairly proficient with every day signs and would welcome further courses.
What could be improved: Nothing! We were all sorry that the course had to end and disappointed that there does not seem to be any future courses planned in this area.
