British Sign Language (BSL) Level 1 course is for those who aspire to contribute to help the people who cannot communicate in the general language with sounds. Hellen Keller is the inspiration for all human being to overcome any disability with persistent effort and certainly, a mentor like Anne Sullivan. Sullivan made Hellen compose a melody in the muted world; she taught Hellen the word ‘water’ by making her feeling the water, spelling the word with a finger; she taught her to sense words by touching the lips of the speaker to feel the vibration.
