4.0 out of 5 stars BSL for dummies review by Deaf Dave. November 11, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am an Auslan teacher (Australian Sign Language). Initially when I bought this book, I was hoping to see a list of activities or ideas for teaching basic signs. So I was a bit disappointed not to see such a list.

However this book is directed at individuals and is not a teacher's manual!

Overall it was well written with good sections on signs that are used in day to day situations. The diagrams are clear. The added DVD with clips of signs is invaluable!

Thank you for this book!

I am always curious and want to learn diff signs from other countries. Some friends from UK and Aussie sent us some videos like Merry Christmas. I asked them questions what signs were for. Fun to learn.
