About this product
- DescriptionPicture Yourself Learning American Sign Language, Level 1 makes learning to sign fun and easy, providing the building blocks to help you master your comprehension of American Sign Language (ASL) at the beginner level. Using a whole-body approach to signing, you'll learn to convey context and meaning on a dynamic level involving both facial expressions and HandShapes. The book begins by teaching you 10 facial expressions, 16 unique HandShapes, and signs to convey time, space, and location. You'll then be introduced to the revolutionary Pick and Say Rubric that incorporates 90 vocabulary words with a sentence pattern. Each part of the sentence is assigned a color-red for time, green for uns, and blue for actions. The rubric makes learning proper sentence structure fun and engaging, and simple sentences can be built upon with the addition of individual vocabulary words. Picture Yourself Learning American Sign Language, Level 1 is filled with full-color photographs that illustrate proper HandShapes formation, and an accompanying DVD that demonstrates the correct way to form words and sentences, making learning to sign simple and enjoyable.
