Should I learn ASL or BSL?
While sign languages tend to be more alike in general, owing to the different physical constraints they use as opposed to voiced ones, BSL is far more similar to Auslan―ASL is from a completely different language family. However, it might be easier to learn BSL if you are British and ASL if you are American.
Is BSL harder than ASL?
The answer is: No, they are not. They’re not even in the same language family, and even use different manual alphabets (ASL uses 1-handed fingerspelling, whereas BSL uses 2-handed). If two people can easily understand each other, the languages they’re using are said to be mutually intelligible.
Is ASL or BSL more common?

Is ASL difficult to learn?
