Which hand?


Recommended Posts

I have just started lesson 1! I am mixed handed so I write with my left hand, or do makeup.. but I do many other things with my right hand or my right foot! I noticed when practising the alphabet in sign language I'm using my left hand for most of the letters but sometimes I naturally use the right handed way. Is this a big problem at all??

yes it does I am hard of hearing and use BSL  you should sign what you most use like writing or typing open door thing like that but if you naturally use right hand that fine just act like you write with your right hand but the thing you should not do is swap hand or mix  like spelling name  using e left touching right then for r  right touching left I can suggest to pick 1 main hand and stick with it  I hope this understand and helpful

    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.

    • Hello everyone, I am new to BSL and would like to say hi 👋 I have always wanted to learn sign language, and I finally have started and loving it so far, my little girl learns sign at school so it is a nice way to develop an essential skill and form of communication together. I have a passion for learning.
