Today, we’re going to learn how to say “Grandma” in sign language.

According to DICTIONARY.COM, the informal term “Grandma” refers to the mother of a person’s parents. A woman becomes a grandma when she gives birth to her own children. Ma is a common way to say, mother.

Even though the word “Grandma” differs among sign languages, today’s discussion will focus on British Sign Language (BSL).

So, let’s get started.

Grandma in Sign Language

Watch the full video, which is linked below.

If it moves too fast for you, don’t worry. Below, each level will be covered in more detail.

Before we start, Remember that BSL is a two-handed sign language.

There are signs where we make a movement with our dominant hand and help with gestures with our non-dominant hand. Never sign with a hand other than your dominant hand. The person you’re speaking with will become confused by this.

Do the following now.

2. Raise both of your hands.

3. Put your hands together, as shown in the picture above.

4. Now place your right hand’s ring, middle, and index finger on your left hand.

5. Say the word ‘Grandma’ as you’re signing it.


So that’s how we sign “Grandma” in British Sign Language. Make sure the person you are conversing with can see you. Anyone can easily misunderstand the message if the signer’s actions are not clear.

Furthermore, If you want to learn the sign, you must practise it regularly; otherwise, you risk forgetting it over time. So keep a lovely smile on your face as well. When we smile, we are more able to connect with others.
