Do you sometimes feel hungry? Do you have to ask someone for food? You will definitely need to learn how to sign Eat in sign language if the person you are speaking to expresses themselves using signs.

No matter the sign language you choose to learn, you will obviously come across this vocabulary early on in your journey. The word Eat in British Sign Language is different from the word Eat in American Sign Language.

For our purposes today, we’ll only be talking with British Sign Language, and we’ll walk you through the steps of signing Eat in BSL with lots of pictures and videos.

Give a quick read to this blog to recognise, “How to Learn BSL? Beginner to Advanced“, with this blog!

So, let’s begin.

Eat in Sign Language

Before moving on to the main topic, you must be informed of particular information regarding BSL. You’ll need to use both hands to communicate because it’s a two-handed language.

Therefore, when learning BSL, you must understand the terms “dominant hand” and “non-dominant hand.” If you are right-handed, that’s your dominant hand. Thus, your left hand is your non-dominant hand and vice-versa.

The base hand is another name for the non-dominant hand.

Now, let us now proceed to see the demonstration on how to sign Thirsty in BSL. First, please watch the video we have linked below:

Please follow the steps we’ll discuss shortly.

2. Now bring your right hand round and close to your face to make it look like you want to eat.

3. While doing the sign, say the word ‘Eat‘ aloud.


That is how we sign the word “Eat” in sign language. Keep a consistent practice schedule to ensure that it is properly established in your memory. Otherwise, it has a tendency to be easily forgotten from our memories.
