This publication has been produced in response to frequent requests for translated British Sign Language (BSL) materials for speakers of URDU, GUJARATI and BENGALI.
The translation work was carried out initially in 2004 with the help of the National Deaf Children’s Society and the original publications were printed and in poster/mat format.
Contains 40 signs in four topic pages translated into the three languages with fingerspelling alphabet borders.
HELLO, WELCOME, GOOD, MORNING, AFTERNOON, EVENING/NIGHT, ALL RIGHT?, NAME, WHAT?, PLEASE/THANK YOU.
FAMILY, MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER, GRANDMOTHER, GRANDFATHER, HUSBAND/WIFE, FRIEND, NEIGHBOUR.
FEEL, SAD, HAPPY, SCARED, ANGRY, FED UP, DON’T LIKE, HURT, UPSET, LOVE.
QUESTION, WHY? WHAT? WHEN? WHO? HOW? HOW OLD?, HOW MANY?, WHERE? WHICH?
The English meanings have been added below each sign and written descriptions for the sign movements have been added at the back of the publication to assist teachers and carers working in this field.
Supported by the Let’s Sign BSL collection of books, dictionaries, posters, flashcards, reward stickers and ebook/kindles.
