British Sign Language (BSL) is now recognised as a language in the United Kingdom (UK). The deaf community is the primary user of it. However, it’s becoming increasingly more popular for those who are hearing and want to learn and use the language themselves.

Today we’ll learn the wordBeautiful in sign language. In most sign languages, theBeautifulsign is different. But today, we’ll just talk about British Sign Language or BSL.

Beautiful in Sign Language 

Before we start our main discussion today, let’s quickly go over a few things.

  • Firstly, we need to understand that BSL is a two-handed language. So, what does that mean? 

In BSL, the pen and paper are represented by both of our hands. Your pen is in your right hand if that is the one you use most often. Naturally, the paper is in your left hand, which is your non-dominant hand. It will look as if you’re writing something on your non-dominant hand when you sign BSL signs.

Especially in comparison to ASL signs, where we only use one hand for sign, BSL signs require two hands. However, the BSL does not always need two hands to sign every word.

  • Secondly, sign languages are completely visual forms of communication. Visibility is required for this language. If your audience can’t see you well, communicating will feel like holding a gloved hand over your lips. Because of your confused, imprecise pronunciation, no one will hear or understand you.

It’s important to keep in mind that if your audience can see you clearly, you won’t run the chance of being misunderstood.

So let’s get to our main topic now. 

We have linked a video below. Please watch it first. Don’t worry about its pace. We’ll explain it in detail to you.

Please follow the steps we’ll discuss shortly.
