The 10-DVD set of SAY IT WITH SIGN features Larry and Sharon Solow, who for more than twenty years have been teaching Sign Language to children and adults of all ages, and take great care to explain how to use Sign Language, continually signing everything they say, using each taught sign in several sentences.
Sign Language is now believed to be the third most popular language in the United States (after English and Spanish) and is used by everyone from athletes to stock traders, as well as being taught to and accepted as a second language in a growing number of colleges.
There are 40 half-hour lessons in the SAY IT WITH SIGN series, each containing a series of new Signs, several Fingerspelling exercises, and some sample Dialogue given to teach conversational phrasing. There are 4 lessons on each 2-hour DVD, and every 5th lesson is a review of the preceding 4 lessons. This is the most popular and comprehensive DVD Sign Language course available.
