Today, we’re going to learn how to say Want in sign language. ‘Want’ is one of the common words you encounter in your signing journey.

Although the word is different in different sign languages, we’ll only deal with British Sign Language or BSL today.

Before we learn how to sign Want in BSL, you can check out one of our latest blogs, where you can gain an extensive understanding of BSL, how it is different from American Sign Langauge, how you can gain expertise in it and much more. All you have to do is, click here.

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


Before we start, remember that BSL uses two-hand gestures. 

There are different signs where we make one gesture with our dominant hand and then make helping motions with our non-dominant hand to complete the sign. While signing, never switch to your other hand. The person you’re talking to will become confused by this.

Do the following right now, to sign want in sign language

  • Start with a normal posture.
  • Raise your right hand.

  • Say the word “Want” while signing.


So, that’s how we sign Want in British Sign Language. Make sure the person you’re interacting with can see you clearly. If the signer’s actions are not clearly visible, anyone might readily misread the message.

You must practice the sign continuously if you want to learn it; otherwise, you risk losing it over time. Also, keep a beautiful smile on your face. Smiles help us connect better.
