Used in conjunction with the text, this totally revised supporting video with new modern characters effectively demonstrates all of the conversations and important structures–bringing the signs in the text to life.

American Sign Language students will find themselves captivated and entertained by this state-of-the-art video. This new video presents all 72 dialogues and each of the key structures in this book.

From the Back Cover:

This book is designed to help learners successfully interact with American Sign Language (ASL) users. Written by two leading authorities in the field, the 24 lessons in this book cover Beginning and Intermediate or Level I and II courses of study. 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. The book is supported by a videotape and an instructor's manual.

  • 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 everyday language of native users of American Sign Language.
