Learning to See Book Excerpt:

As more and more secondary schools and colleges accept American Sign Language (ASL) as a legitimate choice for second language study, Learning to See has become even more vital in guiding instructors on the best ways to teach ASL as a second language. And now this groundbreaking book has been updated and revised to reflect the significant gains in recognition that deaf people and their native language, ASL, have achieved in recent years. Learning to See lays solid groundwork for teaching and studying ASL by outlining the structure of this unique visual language. Myths and misconceptions about ASL are laid to rest at the same time that the fascinating, multifaceted elements of Deaf culture are described. Students will be able to study ASL and gain a thorough understanding of the cultural background, which will help them to grasp the language more easily. An explanation of the linguistic basis of ASL follows, leading into the specific, and above all, useful information on teaching techniques. This practical manual systematically presents the steps necessary to design a curriculum for teaching ASL, including the special features necessary for training interpreters. The new Learning to See again takes its place at the forefront of texts on teaching ASL as a second language, and it will prove to be indispensable to educators and administrators in this special discipline.

American Sign Language Book Excerpt:

Learning a new language is easier than you think! This informative book teaches you the basics of American Sign Language. It’s the third most used language in the United States, and yet it’s “spoken” without even opening your mouth! It’s estimated that as many as two million Americans speak American Sign Language, a method of communication that’s both fun and useful, even if you or your friends and family are not hearing impaired. American Sign Language uses simple-to-follow photographs to teach you the alphabet, numbers, and simple words and phrases. Divided into categories such as Animals and People and Pronouns, the book shows you how to use your hands to communicate. Once you’ve learned the alphabet, you’ll build on that knowledge to learn the words for “friend” and “family.” And when you see how the words for “chicken” and “cat” evoke a chicken opening and closing its beak and a cat stroking its whiskers, you’ll truly understand how intuitive and enjoyable learning American Sign Language can be. Learning a new language is always a rewarding endeavor—and with American Sign Language, it’s easier than ever!
