Spanish Sign Language (SSL)
Spanish Sign Language is the sign language used in Spain. Just like how Spanish is completely different from English, SSL is completely different from ASL.
SSL is the same across Spain, except for Catalonia and Valencia, which have their own signed languages (Catalan Sign Language and Valencian Sign Language).
SSL was influenced by American, Mexican, and French signed languages. And SSL itself influenced Venezuelan Sign Language.
If you are interested in learning some SSL, we recommend these free resources (you probably need to understand Spanish to use them):
- Biblioteca de Signos (Library of Signs)
- The Spanish Manual Alphabet
- Diccionario De Lengua De Senas Argentina (SSL Dictionary)
Even though you’re having fun with SSL, don’t forget to learn ASL too!
I need some SSL resources for my university study, do you have a website link? so I can access from there
I’m deaf I grew up with American Sign Language but I want to learn Spanish sign language because it so cool
I just want to learn and practice more about Spanish Language so I can communicate with all Hispanic Deaf people all over the countries. I am planning to visit.
Aleta, Spanish-speaking countries don’t share the same signed language. They all have their own different signed languages. Spanish Sign Language is spoken only in Spain. It’s not related to Mexican Sign Language or any of the other signed languages spoken on the American continent. If you’re planning a trip to another country and you want to meet deaf people in that country, you should be able to find out some basic information about the local language by googling the country’s name plus the phrase “sign language.”
Side note: Spanish-speaking countries aren’t the only ones where there’s no connection between a country’s oral language and its signed language. American Sign Language and British Sign Language are completely different languages, even though the US and the UK share the same oral language. And you might be surprised to learn that the predominant signed languages in most French-speaking African countries are more closely related to American Sign Language than French Sign Language.
