British Sign Language

Did you know?

  • British Sign Language was recognised as an official language within the UK on the 18th March 2003
  • British Sign Language has regional variations, just like spoken English has dialects and accents.
  • You can be a left handed or a right handed signer, just like you can use your left or right hand to write.
  • British Sign Language is only used in Britain. In America they use ASL, in France they use LSF, just the same as different countries speak different languages.
  • Around 150,000 people in the UK use BSL.
