Coffee in Sign Language

Before we start, please keep in mind that BSL is a two-handed sign language. That means you’ll use both hands to communicate.

This system does not apply to all sign languages, though.

Imagine that one of your hands is a piece of paper. Your other hand is the pen. The term “dominant hand” refers to the hand that holds a pen. Most people use their right hand. Therefore, if your left hand is not your dominant hand, it will act as the paper. The base hand is another name for the non-dominant hand.

Never change your dominant hand in the middle of a sign. Your signs won’t signify anything to your viewers in this situation.
