  • 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.

    • Congratulations on the new job! I literally just came back from an interview for a nursery assistant position hahaha.Crossing my fingers I get a call back heh. Lemme know when you're free to practice. Also feel like I need to caution you on the fact that I'm a proper proper beginner okay hahah
    • Hi all, I am a primary school teacher and think all children should learn at least the basics of BSL. I have always wanted to learn myself! So I am finally taking the plunge and hope to become fluent over time and able to introduce sign to the children further down the line. Happy to practice with others and speak to others as we go . 
    • Hi everyone!!! I'm a medical student and I'm trying to learn bel to hopefully be able to communicate with patients that may need it. If anyone wants to practice online I'm super happy to.  
    • I am the same - When I asked cambsdeaf they suggested choose a hand (preferably the one you would write with the most)  apparently it can get confusing so better just to choose one.  I chose left   but now i think ive made it more difficult as everyone else seems to sign the opposite. 
    • Hi, I'm at Uni aswell (though im 33!) I'm studying Early Childhood Studies about to start my second year in September alongside a new Teaching assistant job ! There's a few children who need further support and I have always wanted to learn BSL and I am happy to practice with you via computer! 
    • I'm Jackie or Jac , I would  like to understand  more about  sign language  and be able to converse at a basic level , hope maybe  someone  with a lot of patience can help me achieve  this 🤗
    • Im currently in uni in Leeds doing a course in childhood studies. Ive always wanted to learn BSL just never really had the time till now. Super excited with my progress but I haven't had the chance to practice it with another person so I don't actually know if im any good hahaha. If anyone is interested to practice over FT or discord or whatever let me know!
