2 Mins Read

Today, we will learn how to say Home in sign language. It is one of the common terms you will come across on your sign language adventure. Even though the word changes depending on the sign language and there are many other sign languages available, we’ll only discuss British Sign Language (BSL) today.

So, let’s get started.

House in Sign Language

Watch the complete video, which we’ve linked below.
If it moves too quickly for you, don’t worry. Below, each level will be described in more detail.

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

In some situations, we use our dominant hand for specific actions and our non-dominant hand for supporting gestures.

Never change your dominant hand while signing. The individual you are conversing with will become confused as a result.

Recognise the advantages of learning BSL, with this blog.

Do the following now.

  • Start with a normal posture.

  • Now, raise both of your hands.
  • Join both of your hands in an ‘A’ shape.
  • Say the word ‘Home’ while you’re signing.

So, that’s the first version of the word. So let’s now see the second version. This is the one-handed version of the word.

  • Now raise your right hand.

  • Now lower your right hand down.
  • Remember to say the word when you’re signing it.


So, that’s how we say house in sign language. There are two different forms of the word, as you can see. One of them needs both of our hands, but the other doesn’t.

Because so many words in sign language, particularly BSL, require the use of both hands, visibility is essential. If your audience can’t see you clearly, they’ll become confused or, worst yet, think the word is insulting.

Keep a smile on your face at all times. With only a simple, charming look, you may connect with your audience right away.
