You don’t have to be a monkey to love bananas! The health advantages of bananas can benefit you all day long, whether you’re eating one on the run or combining one into a smoothie.

So, today we will learn how to say ‘Banana’ in Sign Language. 

So, let’s begin.

Banana in Sign Language

Before going on to the presentation itself, there are a few things you should know. Take a look at them:

  • Unlike several other visual languages, such as American Sign Language or ASL, British Sign Language BSL is a two-handed language. Despite having the same verbal language, they use different sign languages.
  • When learning BSL, the terms “dominant hand” and “non-dominant hand” will be used. If you are right-handed, this hand is your dominant one. Your non-dominant hand is your left one. The base hand is another name for it.

With that said, let’s get back to our main discussion: how to say “Banana” in BSL?

First, please check out the video presented below:

Now, please follow the steps outlined below:
