There are numerous resources online for you to learn a language. However if you are looking to learn sign language, the process can seem harder as all learning aids must be visual.

 It can often be a daunting task to decide which resource is the right one for you. Lucky for you, we have collated what we think are the best available, both free and premium sign language learning tools available online.

We will be focussing on resources that use British sign language. 

Sign BSL 

Sign BSL is a website dedicated to British Sign Language which has an integrated application available free on both the App Store and Google Play store. The app features over 21000 videos showing you how to use BSL. Many of the words have more than one video for you to reference as some words have different meanings. The videos are from a number of trusted sources including Signstation, Deafax, Sign Monkey and many more.

School of Sign Language  

This website features a free service as well as a subscription service. The free service allows the user to access a number of YouTube videos demonstrating BSL for many different occasions. While it is a basic resource, it also allows a package specifically designed for children.

The full package is available for a very hefty £365 but is used and praised by a number of schools as well as parents with children who have hearing difficulties. Individual modules are available from £36.50 and make it easy for children to engage with BSL with a number of colourful activities and games, which make learning fun and enjoyable at the same time.
