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
