So that’s how we sign new 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.

Also, 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.
