Everyone enjoys having a good time, whether it’s at a tea party, New Year’s Eve, Glastonbury Festival, or the Rio Carnival. Partying has been a tradition since the beginning of time, and many of history’s most fascinating stories end (or start!) with parties.

Today, we’re going to learn how to say Party in sign language. It’s possible that you found our blog when looking up the American Sign Language sign for Party. The sign for Party in American sign language and British sign language differ slightly. Other sign languages also have the same features.

Interestingly, neither of these is very difficult when discussing the sign for Party. Other sign languages may not be similar in this regard.

With that said, we’ll just discuss BSL today.

Party in Sign Language

Before we begin, keep in mind that BSL is a two-handed sign language. This means that you will interact using both hands.

This system does not apply to all sign languages, though.

Imagine that one of your hands is a piece of paper. Your other hand is the pen. The term “dominant hand” refers to the hand that holds a pen. Most people use their right hand. Therefore, if your left hand is not your dominant hand, it will act as the paper. The base hand is another name for the non-dominant hand.

Never change your dominant hand in the middle of a sign. Your signs won’t signify anything to your viewers in this situation.

So, back to our topic: how do you say Party in sign language?

Now let’s move on to the following videos. Take your time watching them.

Don’t worry about their tempo. Below, we’ll walk you through every step of the process.
