Learn American Sign Language is great for anyone wanting to learn sign,
It has picture index cards showing and telling you how to do the sign you are wanting to do. I recommend buying this book for practicing sign language.

Do not buy this ASL guide. For one thing, a huge chunk of its noun, verb, and adjective flashcards are completely false. Even if they weren't, the instructions would still be difficult to follow. Upon closer examination, the alphabet card (also inaccurate) featured on the front of the box is obviously photographed at odd angles by someone who didn't actually know ASL, but probably looked at some sheet of paper and crudely tried to mimic the hand motions. Even the booklet inside, written by Rice, is confusing, incomplete, and worst of all, largely inaccurate. The one way you could find enjoyment out of this purchase? Finding another hearing person to buy the same kit, and communicate with shoddy ASL as a secret code. That way, no one, hearing or deaf, will know what you're saying!

I purchased this to learn the basics of ASL as quick as possible. It provided all the information needed to give me a near complete grasp of the language and it's applications. The information contained in this program was easy to understand and the visuals provided all that was needed to learn ASL. Within a day I was able to communicate with those I needed to (albeit a little slow at first). Practice and the ability to apply what I learned had me well on my way to communicating with hearing impared individuals. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting or needing to learn American Sign Language,

If you've been contemplating learning sign language then you need to purchase these cards. I love the facial expressions on the model and the excellent explanation of each sign described at the bottom of the picture. The author did a great job with this product, she should continue making more products like this.

Wow! I wish I'd had this set when I first started learning sign language. It's wonderful! Flashcards with beautiful photographs of a person showing the sign and facial expressions help you learn or teach these many common signs. My only complaint is that the box is really too small for the whole set and fold out information booklet. It's a tight squeeze to get everything back in the box. Otherwise, I'm very impressed by the quality of the set and plan to get at least one more to share. I might even get a third set to use as a center in my third grade classroom.

...Now everyone can learn! What a great idea and phenomenal teaching tool these FLASH CARDS are for learning ASL! I have many Deaf friends who frequently socialize with my hearing friends and family and these cards were a huge hit at a recent gathering. Arlene Rice clearly explains the unique and fascinating idiosyncracies of American Sign Language and Deaf Culture. The handsome model/instructor John Cleary's facial expressions and handshapes easily demonstrate how to formulate the ASL signs. These flash cards would make a great gift for anyone interested in learning about the third most frequently used language in America!
