I first met Rebecca Britton when she taught me level 1 British Sign Language at a local college. At the time I wasn’t sure how far I wanted to progress with sign language, I had just finished university and wanted to continue studying, top of my list was to learn BSL. I really enjoyed the level 1 course and so decided to progress with private lessons for BSL level 2. It was great having the smaller class size as we were able to progress farther and quickly completed this level. I am now studying for my NVQ level 6 in BSL and am aiming to become a qualified interpreter in the not too distant future. Rebecca has also helped me with this by asking me to interpret for her, so being able to gain valuable experience. Rebecca has also encouraged me to go to local deaf clubs; I’ve found this is a great way to meet people whilst also providing a great opportunity to practice.

As a teacher Rebecca was encouraging and supportive, I can’t recommend her enough!
