  • BSL Fingerspelling Alphabet

    Fingerspelling is a way of spelling words using hand movements. The fingerspelling manual alphabet is used in sign language to spell out names of people and places for which there is not a sign. Fingerspelling can also be used to spell words for signs that the signer does not know the sign for, or to clarify a sign that is not known by the person reading the signer. Fingerspelling signs are often also incorporated into other BSL signs.

    British Sign Language (BSL) uses the two-handed alphabet however some other sign languages use the one-handed alphabet.

    • I wanted to learn BSL to help with communicating with my son.
    • Hi, I am Rachael and I signed up to learning sign language as I have been taught the basics through speech and language to help my son who has Down’s syndrome. This will help him learn aswell as me and also his other siblings can communicate with him.
    • Hello everyone! Signed up to do BSL course about 4 hours ago and I'm really enjoying it! I've wanted to do a BSL course for a while now, didn't realise you could do online until my friend completed hers today. Looking forward to this new adventure Hope you all have a lovely weekend! Naomi

    • Hi Anja, Not sure if you still need help with this but I did the below video for you. Sentence structure as follows - "Hello Anja" "Nice meet you" "Name me what - Jeet" "Your question" "Try this" "Give, mobile phone, please" Happy for anyone to come in and correct any of the above, i only got my certification last week Friday.  
    • Hi everyone I’m Charlotte I work in retail and while we have been furloughed I thought I would use my time to learn basic sign language so that I can serve all of my Customers as at the moment it must be difficulty hard of hearing customers as we have no one that can sign
