Don’t be concerned if it goes too rapidly for you. Each stage will be discussed in further depth below.

Now do the following. Before we begin, remember that BSL is a two-handed sign language. That suggests you’ll be using both hands to communicate.

However, there are certain signs in which we use our dominant hand to make one gesture and our non-dominant hand to finish the sign with helping gestures. Don’t, for example, switch your dominant hand in the middle of a sign. This will baffle the individual with whom you are conversing.

Now, the word “Good morning” consists of two signs. One for ‘good’ and the other for ‘morning’. First, we’ll sign ‘good’ and then ‘morning’ and that’ll complete the whole sign.
