    Excellent book which gives a clear insight into the construction and use of British Sign Language The first few pages are difficult and I had to read them slowly in order to understand how various abbreviations and symbols were to be used during the book However, one I d got through that I found the book interesting and well written I would say this book is suitable for level 3 BSL learners.

    I didn t find this book very helpful There aren t many pictures and it s just a lot of literature that I don t think I needed to know

    Interesting read, but a bit heavy going I feel Most suitable for learning BSL at a higher level Helpful for understanding syntax.

    I am currently studying level 6 BSL and this book was recommended by my tutor It arrived within a couple of days in perfect condition The book itself is a must for anyone wanting to further their knowledge and understanding of such a complex language I do a lot of internet shopping and would definitely purchase from this seller again due to accurate product description, competitive price and speed of delivery.
