Help - which hand

I am mixed handed. (I write with my left hand but do most other things with my right). When I'm signing, I'm switching between my primary hands depending on what I'm signing! Can anyone tell me if this is a problem and do I need to get into the habit of using a primary hand.

Hi Bert,

Switching hands is no problem at all! BSL users will switch hands all the time, depending on a variety of things like where is the person you're signing to (on your left, on your right, or somewhere else), etc.

I realised I am switching between hands too. For example, when I quote a dialogue between people, I use one hand for one person, and the other hand for the other person. Or when I describe a room, I use my left hand for the left half of the room and my right hand for the right half of the room.

So, no worries! 🙂
