Today we’ll learn to say Bye in sign language. Keep in mind, too, that British Sign Language has a slightly different way of saying Bye than, say, American Sign Language.But, for our purpose today, we’ll only talk about BSL.

So, let’s move on to our main topic now.

Bye in Sign Language

Before we start, please remember that ‘Bye’ is a single-handed sign. It indicates that you will sign the word with just one hand.  However, BSL is generally a two-handed sign language. Most of the words will be signed with both hands.

Keep yourself visible to your audience at all times. This will guarantee that your sign won’t be taken negatively.

One more thing, before we get started. When learning sign language, especially those that are two-handed languages, you’ll hear the terms “dominant hand” and “non-dominant hand.”

If you’re right-handed, that’s your dominant hand. Your left hand is the non-dominant hand. We alternatively call it the base hand too.

Please watch the video below.

Please follow the instructions we’ve given below.

  1. Now raise your right hand and keep moving it.
  2. Say the ‘word’ out loud while doing the sign.


So, that’s how we say “Bye” in sign language. Since it’s a “bye,” we can’t express enough how important it is to maintain a stunning smile.

If you can create a more natural connection between you and the other person, nonverbal communication, such as sign language, is far more effective.

Finally, exercise regularly. You’ll remember the sign better if you consistently practise.
