Being able to communicate with others is a skill we often take for granted. But what if you were in a situation where you wanted to talk to someone who was deaf? Yes, maybe they would be able to lip read to help you communicate but wouldn’t it be better if you were able to at least try and chat to them in their first language. That’s why being able to sign at least a few basic BSL (British Sign Language) signs can come in really handy.
Check out this helpful video from Commanding Hands that shows us 100 basic signs that we can all try to learn.
