Lessons are structured around language needed for common life situations, and examples are presented in the form of dialogues coupled with grammar and vocabulary instruction. Information is also included about the culture of deaf people in the United States.

Learners will discover that the ebook:

  • Contains lessons designed around the conversational language needed for common life situations.
  • Illustrates hundreds of sentences and vocabulary with over 2,000 high-quality colorized drawings that aid in study and memory.
  • Contains over 100 grammar and cultural notes, 72 exercises, and charts of the American Manual Alphabet (Finger spelling) and ASL number system.
  • Teaches the rules of ASL in a natural order that is predictable and compatible with the everyday language of native users of American Sign Language.
  • Incorporates information about the cultural lives of Deaf people in the United States.

Reviews about the ebook:

  • James Metz:
    Purchased for my granddaughter. She just enrolled in ASL continuing education class. She learned some signing while in high school and then they discontinued the class due to budget cuts and she wants to complete both levels. She loves signing.
  • Kimberly G:
    Great book. The spiral-bound only covers 2/3 of the book leaving out the middle section so it is a little floppy when carried. I also suggest using the DVD that works with this book. the fast shipping was great! Happy signing!
  • Kelly Goodman:
    This book is easy to follow. My daughter & I took a basic signing class at our local college as she wanted to teach her baby how to sign so we could understand what she wanted before she had learned to speak. Not only did we learn sign language, but my granddaughter picked up on it very quickly and was signed by the time she was 5 months old. It’s nice to be able to communicate — even if it is just a word or phrase at that age! She was & continues to be a very easy-going child. My grandson was taught to sign at 2 after an illness thwarted his speech. He picked up on it quickly (thank God) as it would get very frustrated when we didn’t know what he wanted. Now he can sign and the frustration, tears, etc. have all but ceased.
  • Eljay:
    The text is solid as a teaching resource but not something I would recommend. The DVD is poorly produced as an educational tool; the actors sign much too quickly for beginners, and it becomes a joke to students instead of a resource. Therefore, the DVD is unhelpful at best and harmful if you consider the demoralizing effects of failure and frustration on student motivation to learn. This problem is particularly important because many of the picture definition entries in the text are difficult to decipher, and the DVD is little help in that regard.The text is not very engaging. It is comprised mostly of grammar rules and definition entries, with too few learning exercises to employ and practice the material. The indexes in the back of the book are poorly done for a textbook.It definitely outperforms the other “go-to” text people seem to use, Vista Signing Naturally (which has a lot of problems), but it’s not a strong text. Neither text seems grounded in the foundations of theory on education, or uses what is known from research in education and psychology about learning and memory, foreign language acquisition, etc. Lastly, it’s expensive for what you get, especially the DVD.
  • Harold Goodman:
    I am the author of the Michel Thomas courses to learn spoken Mandarin Chinese.When my ASL first assigned this text and I received it from Amazon, I thought, How will I ever learn ASL from this?I am now in the third week of classes. The teacher is OK but the book along with the DVD is better.

    Honestly, if I had to only learn from the teacher, I would know precious little. She is deaf and it is very hard for me and my fellow hearing students to understand her.

    I found another student to study without class. We both review the materials for each unit in this book on our own. Then we meet before class after we have watched the relevant DVD portion on our own a few times, and go through the exercises together.

    You cannot learn ASL from a book even with a DVD.

    However, what you do learn can be corrected by someone who knows this language. Feedback is essential.

    Go to a deaf church service, work with a deaf person via skype, find someone who can give you feedback. It will really pay off.

    Some of the drawings in the book were a bit confusing. I found a book, Perigee Visual dictionary of signing, which details the signs and, best of all, gives mnemonics or memory aids to understand them and get them to stick.

    The more I go through the book, the more confusing the pictures are. If you Google ASL you will find several sites where the gestures are shown via free videos. Use them in conjunction with the book and DVD. I wonder how anyone can make sense of ASL solely from this book.

    There is no way to learn without practicing.

    Do a little each day. A little is worth a lot more than a lot infrequently.

    The book has exercised. Get to where you can comfortably express each sentence.

    Spend a little time reviewing the past lessons, learning new material, and getting more familiar with ASL each day. It takes time so don’t get discouraged at the beginning. This is purely visual language and, for some, this may initially prove somewhat confusing.

    Do whatever you can do. That is enough even if you don’t believe me!

    Be aware of how ASL expresses things. ASL does not equal English. It is a separate language and has its own grammar and syntax. This book will give you enough of this to get started.

    Above all, do not be too greedy in learning lots of stuff.

    Get to where you know the core vocabulary of signs. Use this over and over until it is second nature.

    Not even all deaf signers know all the signs.

    Learn to fingerspell first of all. Then you can fingerspell whatever sign you don’t know.

    Make sure you use facial expressions. Without them it is like you are speaking in a monotone; boring.

    Slowly, little by little, you will learn this wonderful, expressive language.

  • Diane Hoover:
    Some of the pictures I really need to pay attention to as it can be hard to tell exactly how your hands should be placed. And the examples of conversations you practice do not reflect everyday conversations so it is awkward and not that applicable. Otherwise, I have found this to be a great resource for learning signs.
  • Bruce Dinsman:
    Good basic book for learning American Sign Language. I would recommend this book to anyone who interacts with the public in any capacity. The deaf community would greatly appreciate your effort. My daughter is now an ASL interpreter (recent assignments including hospital, court, GHURA, prison). My wife has taken several courses and I am trying to learn because my wife frequently loses her voice and has to communicate by a sign.
  • Rebekah Lewis:
    I love this ebook. The great foundation of signs – though some are a little outdated or not used in my area. Sometimes it’s hard to understand a sign from a book, but there are plenty of resources on the internet, or live people, that can help you sharpen your skills.As with any language book, the text itself will not make you fluent, but it will definitely help set you up to communicate effectively.
  • LoreleiLouise:
    I received my ebook fast. After looking through it for an hour and studying the first pages, I learned how the book was written. Several learning aids are included in the pictures and once you study what the aids do, you realize how much thought went into this book. I intend on taking a formal class using this book. But until that time I am going to begin on my own so I have a head start. I have read reviews from people who say that the pictures are too hard to understand. They did not take the time to read the explanation for the pictures. This is a fine book and I cannot wait to get into it. It is my intention to become certified as an Interpreter and this book will give me a great start. This is a book for people who are serious about the study, not those who want learning and understanding handed to them on a platter.
  • PumpkinToes:
    This book arrived exactly when promised, and the pages were in good shape. The cover was a little damaged and there were some notes in pencil and pen that was not disclosed, but overall as good as can be expected! Thanks!
  • Claudia:
    A wonderful workbook if you’d like to improve your ASL skills.
  • Jessica:
    This was a required textbook for an ASL course I took in college. I loved learning sign language and this book helped a lot in that process. This is one of the few textbooks I kept and it is one of the few that I pull out occasionally to look over again.
  • GLAM:
    I needed this book for my ASL 1&2 classes and it’s been such a blessing to have this book and to have bought it for a reasonable price!
  • Sarah:
    A good book for learning some basics in ASL. My edition though doesn’t have the DVD.
