American Sign Language is a wonderful silent language of hands, face, and body that is rich with nuance, emotion, and grace. Bantam is proud to present the newly revised Signing : How To Speak With Your Hands, a comprehensive and easy-to-use guide that has long been the invaluable and definitive guide for families, friends, and professionals who need to communicate effectively with deaf children and adults.

All the beautifully illustrated signs are accompanied by precise, easy-to-follow instructions on how to form them. This complete guide includes chapters on common phrases, the alphabet, foods and eating, health, recreation, and the newest chapter covering technology, politics. education, and music.

    Very helpful - pictures make the difference!

    I am taking an ASL class with a hard of hearing instructor. She is "updating" some of the signs to keep current; but, for the most part this books is dead on. I believe it's very well done!

    Sign language

    It is very useful and clear The pictures are easy to follow with text instructions underneat for clarification and nearly every sign includes a hint to help you remember the sign. The hints really stick with you. We had to do a lot of studying the signs on our own, even though our teacher did go over most of them in class, and the book was very easy to learn from.

    This was my text for a college intro to sign course and it was great! The pictures are easy to follow with text instructions underneat for clarification and nearly every sign includes a hint to help you remember the sign. The hints really stick with you.
