Welcome to PremierBSL's
At PremierBSL, we are committed to giving our learners the best possible learning experience and the greatest opportunity to excel on a BSL course. Providing the highest possible standard of face-to-face teaching in the classroom, PremierBSL also offer an on-line learning platform that is the envy of other British Sign Language (BSL) and Deaf Awareness providers.
PremierBSL is at the pinnacle of BSL and Deaf Awareness teaching across the UK. With a proud history of providing training for more than 25 years on the national and international stage, quality and state of the art teaching is guaranteed.
This site is for those who have been enrolled on a PremierBSL course, or have secured access through subscription. Use of the site will support your learning and provide a recap on any classroom based face-to-face sessions you have. If you can't commit to a weekly course, this course has been designed for you, with on-line learning now possible. Used well, our on-line courses are being used by learners to gain fully accredited BSL qualifications.
We hope that accessing teaching in this way will accelerate learning and help retention with access availble 24/7. Our courses are delivered by a teacher who is passionate about the teaching and use of linguistically accurate BSL.
If you are not yet registered on a PremierBSL course but would like to join, or would like to subscribe, please have a look at the main PremierBSL website for more information.
Current students can get to the list of courses they are enrolled on, or have previously completed by clicking on 'My Courses' in the menu above.
Led by leading Deaf entrepreneur Sarah Lawrence, the most important aspects of learning with PremierBSL is getting access to quality teaching and having a revision tool available to you. However, through Sarah's engaging personality you will also learn through fun, with students encouraged to throw themselves enthusiastically into learning, whilst ensuring they learn in a grammatically and linguistically correct way.
