I ordered this book and it arrived in two days!!! Thanks you! I am currently enrolled in Signing Online. I wanted to purchase this book because it is a complement to the online course.

This book is thorough. There is a plethora of illustrations. Here's what's included. There are Facial grammar rules...as well as general ASL grammar rules. There are more than 800 easy to follow illustrations. The Deaf Culture is also included. There's so much more, but there's not enough room to write it all in this review! This book is thick!! I can't believe how comprehensive this book is. I am VERY, VERY happy with this book!

I would like to become fluent in ASL. So...I intend to practice, practice, and practice some more.

If you're interested in ASL, check out Lydia Callis. She is Mayor Bloomberg's ASL Interpreter for New York City. I've never seen anyone use the style she uses. I want to interpret like that.

You will LOVE this book. Buy it and get started with ASL. You'll be glad you did.

I use this book for ASL (level 3) and the lessons are easy to understand. It does a great job of giving some background to the sign as well as sections about technology, history, and much more. For the classroom, this book cannot be beat!

I recommend this book to all my friends who are serious about ASL, in particular those who are learning online and need a more formal grammar supplement to go along with their less formal learning. The principles of ASL grammar are clearly described and frequently repeated in examples, helping the student to absorb the ideas. Still pictures aren't really enough on their own, so it's best to combine this book with classroom or video instruction to understand the images, but the book helps students learn how to adapt the vocabulary they learn online to create grammatically correct phrases and stories. The grammar presented is ASL, not SEE, making this book much more trustworthy than most on the market. Examples of topics covered include classifiers, sentence structure, asking questions, negation, and time concepts.

I purchased these books for work as we have a sign language class here. They are extremely helpful (I am taking the class so can speak from experience). Would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to learn sign language. Very basic and simple for the beginner on up!

I'm taking an ASL class that I love and I needed this book for that class. It is full of a lot of helpful information and know- how, but the only issue I have with it are the pictures to show you how to do some of the signs. If you're not taking an ASL class with a teacher certified in ASL or know a buddy/ friend who knows the signs, you might start signing the wrong way with some of the pictures. Me and a couple of my classmates were talking about how when we were meant to go home and study the signs after a class, then come back to class the next week, show the teacher what we studied, the teacher would something completely different then what is in the book. Yes, I'm aware that the ASL community is vast, and that depending on where you are in the states, they may have different to modified sign(s) for certain words, but these pictures just seems a bit off in a directional sense. Otherwise, it's a great book to start with and should definitely be looked at as a starting guide. I would recommend if you are taking a class or have some other form/means of a visual companion with it to check to see if you're doing the sign correctly.
