Learn How to Sign the Easy Way!

So many language books start off with everything that you don’t need to know. Of course, anybody who wants to become fluent in another language needs to learn its grammar, sentence structure, and idiosyncrasies. But what if there’s no time to become fluent?
For people who just need or want to dive in and start communicating in American Sign Language (ASL), there’s a quick, easy solution: Easy Guide to American Sign Language. Inside this handy little book are over 500 basic signs that will give you all the necessary tools for starting out in ASL.
Here you will find phrases to help you start a basic conversation in the classroom or on the road. The signs are grouped by subject, in chapters, so you can quickly flip to the page you need to find: Alphabet and Numbers
  • Greetings and Phrases
  • Family Members and People
  • Food and Meals
  • Emotions and Feelings
  • Nature and the Weather
Easy Guide to American Sign Language is your fun and handy passport to ASL.

These notecards are a great help to my studies in signing! My 12 yr old son and I are taking a signing class and the notecards save me taking a lot of time taking notes, so now I can just concentrate on 'listening' and learning. They are easy to read and follow, and are drawn and explained a lot better than any notes I could write down and draw myself. They are also organized in such a way that is very easy to find what area we need to study next. My son loves them also! He says they help him remember the signs easier. I would recommend these for anyone who is new to sudying ASL(American Sign Language).

This chart makes it easy to get the basic information that you may need. It is organized in categories and gives you instructions in hand shape movements of the hand and the rationale of the signing. This is great as a learning tool for students or someone brushing up on signing after years of not using it.

As a paraprofessional I purchased this item to keep on hand since I work with a number of students that have sign language incorporated into their routine. It's quick and easy if I need a sign in a hurry.
