Course testimonials:

  • Elizabeth said: I enjoyed learning how to communicate using sign language. The tutor was very attentive and made sure was following. A couple of students were annoying in that they would talk sometimes, whereas for me part of the learning includes trying to understand the reality of deaf people. Fast track was hard work with a lot to learn in a short time, but very practical. Thank you Matt !

  • Brigitte said: It was great to have a deaf tutor, it really made me appreciate sign language. Bryan was a great teacher and gave context to signs which helped my memory.

  • Pauline said: Chris our tutor was excellent and very patient. The classes were inclusive and fun. Would highly recommend this to anyone interested.
