american or uk


did you do sign language for the UK or does it translate all over the world with one language,i get that dialects change as do the majority of signs ,but are the basics the same ??


The sign language available on Rocket Languages is American Sign Language (ASL) which is used throughout most of North America and the sign language used in the UK is British Sign Language (BSL) and they are completely different languages. Most countries have their own sign languages which can be similar in some ways but are completely separate languages used by the deaf people in that country or region. There is International Sign Language which can be used as a way of communication but it's a different sign language that the deaf person would have to learn.
