We thought it would make a nice change from BSL. Don’t be put off, have a look and pick out the bits you can understand and ignore the rest. Unless you’re a whizz at international fingerspelling you will not catch the names, but you will spot signs about the ball being passed, tackles, goal scoring, etc.
Continuing the international theme, there is another clip on YouTube that gives the Brazilian signs for all the cities where the World Cup is being played. There is a short introduction in Brazilian Sign Language – you might be able to work out some of what he is saying? If not, don’t worry – once the introduction is over it is clear which place names are being signed.
