Sign Supported English

Photo: Learn SSE or Sign Supported English

Sign Supported English (SSE) is similar to British Sign Language (BSL)  only in terms of borrowing BSL signs to communicate. But BSL has its own grammatical rules which make it very different from English. SSE uses the same grammatical rules as English. SSE is mainly used to support spoken English and is often used in education.

The video below gives you a detailed look into the differences between BSL and SSE.
