How to Sign the Letter U in Sign Language

The alphabet serves as a bridge to literacy in sign language. Just like learning to read and write in spoken languages, learning the sign language alphabet provides the foundation for reading and writing in sign language. The letter “U” is one of the vowels used infrequently but it is still important to know how to sign.
