BSL Level 1:2 ALPHABET


Hello my lovelies I hope you are well Welcome back to BSL with me Charlie and welcome back to this series where I’m breaking down level 1 Making it super fun and super easy for you guys now today’s topic is the alphabet and I feel like this is such a useful skill to have because even if you don’t know how to sign a word There’s been so many times where I’ve been like “Oh, sorry, how you say_?” and then I finger spell the word and then I learn a new sign So the first thing to remember when doing the alphabet is that your vowels all on one hand So you’ve got a e i o & u so, let’s break this down nice and slow. A you’re gonna point at your thumb B is for binoculars C is a curly c D you’re gonna bring this index up and make it a capital D E You’re gonna point at your index F. It’s like a closed hashtag like that G it’s like you’re gonna grind pepper. So G Let’s do that chunk again. So a b c d e f g Next is H and it makes me think of haaaa that smooth so H I Is your middle finger. J You’re just gonna draw a J like that. K you’re gonna make a kicking K like that L is one finger M Is three fingers and n is two fingers? Let’s do that from H. So h I J k l M N And let’s carry on. O you’re gonna point out your fourth finger here so O. P you’re gonna make a little P Q you’re gonna make a capital Q. So there’s the round bit and there’s the accent just like that So Q. Are you make an R on your hand like that? s is like a baby finger skinchie s and t you make a little capital T like that t let’s go from all so you’ve got o p q r s T and let’s do the final chunk and we’ll do it all again. So you V is just a capital V on your hand W you you’re gonna interlock your fingers just like this x you’re gonna cross index Yyou gonna make a little y like that so there’s the curvy bit at the top and there’s the stick at the bottom Y and Zed you’re gonna curve one hand and Bring the other just straight like that Let’s go from you. So you’ve got u V. W x Y and z now Let’s do the entire alphabet again, but a bit slow. We’ll get through it guys, don’t you worry so a b c d e f g h I J k l m n o p q r s t u V.
