Learning Sign Language
Tips for learning American Sign Language and other signed languages
Learning Sign Language is a great resource of tips and tricks for those taking classes or who are interested in learning American Sign Language (ASL). Instead of an instructional book on using sign language, this is a manual that helps the student know how to learn signs.
If the interest of the student is to learn a signed language other than ASL this book is still a tremendous resource. Many countries use sign language systems based on ASL. American Sign Language itself has its base in French Sign Language (LSF) which has also influenced the signed language systems of many countries. Therefore, most of the tips and tricks for learning sign language found in the book will more than likely directly apply to the signed language the student wishes to learn.
The author has spent years traveling to different countries to work with deaf communities using various signed languages. The book contains tips from his travels on how to take current sign language knowledge and apply that to learning new languages.
