GREAT! For a Beginner Mar 8, 2007
This is a great book. I am learning to interpret for church. It seems that a lot of these signs are pretty up to date. It is great for building vocabulary. I highly recommend this book to anyone learning to interpret.
Best Signing Book I've Read Nov 3, 2006
The best thing about this book, is it gives you a reason WHY you are making the particular sign instead of making you just trying to memorize everything. Once you read the reason, the sign stays in your head. Very good book, I would recommend it to anyone.
Excelent book Oct 26, 2006
I am not deaf, neither any of the people I know. But I always have been interested in learning how to sign. I started classes of ASL in a Deaf and hard of hearing institute. My teacher is deaf and even though she reads lips, she doesn't like to talk. I almost quitted on my first lesson, but I found this book and I bought it. I found it FANTASTIC. It has very good tips to remember the signs; it has clear pictures of hands shapes and movements as well as facial expressions. I simply love it.
A really great start. Feb 7, 2006
I'm not deaf and I don't know any deaf people, so I figured trying to learn sign language on my own would be hard. Then I found this book. It's very handy and I'm learning a lot, quickly. Having everything grouped into themes makes it easier to learn, and at each sign there's a helpful little memory trick to help you learn them quickly.
Great Tool For Learning Nov 25, 2005
I'm deaf and they're is only 1 person in my school that is deaf also. All of our friends don't understand what we're saying, and on days that our translater isn't there, they're totally lost. Our friends all found out about the book and are learning to sign and understand what we say. We don't feel like we're in a hole and nobody can hear us. Everything is illustrated clearly and it's very easy to learn. This book is a definate must-read.
