2 Mins Read

The United Kingdom has recognised British Sign Language (BSL) as a language (UK). The deaf community is the primary user of it. However, it’s becoming increasingly more popular for those who are hearing and want to learn and use the language themselves.

Today we’ll learn the word Yellow in sign language. In most sign languages, the yellow sign is different. But today, we’ll just talk about British Sign Language or BSL.

We have linked a video below. Please watch it first. Don’t worry about its pace. We’ll explain it in detail to you.

4. And keep moving your hand.

5. Say the word ‘Yellow’ while doing the sign.

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

2. Now touch the back side of the left hand twice with the index finger of your right hand.

3. Say the word ‘Yellow’ while doing the sign.


So, that’s how we say Yellow in sign language. As you can see, there are two versions of the word. One of them needs both our hands to sign while the other one doesn’t. This is why visibility is key in sign language, especially in BSL, where there are a lot of words that need both our hands to sign. Practise regularly to cement the sign in your memory, so you won’t need to keep referring back to this tutorial.
