1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 15 May 2013
By Myrrien
Format:Kindle Edition
Not as expected. This book was not a discussion of body language or sign but only the asl alphabet. Not much use in the UK where bsl is the norm.

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic numbers and alphabet - nothing more 16 May 2013
By Crystal E - Published on Amazon.com

The title implies a lot more than the book delivers. I gave it 2 stars though because FINGER SPELLING is an important part of the full AMESLAN. Without knowing how to finger spell (which is not SIGN LANGUAGE), you cannot do a majority of the signs (which are full words or concepts), since sign meanings often only vary by the "letter hand" that is used to make them. An example would be Build vs Make, using either a B-hand or an M-hand that pounds the thumb of an S-hand.

As a previous review mentioned, the J and Z are motion letters, and if you do not know the motion already, the book does not adequately convey it.

Fingerspelling is rather tedious for the deaf to read, unless you are really fast and know the diphthongs and common combos, so use this book only as a foundation for learning the basic hand positions so that you can understand sign descriptions in other books or articles that may be written like my description of Build vs Make.

And practice using BOTH hands. both at the same time, and alternating hands with each letter. You will learn a few interesting things about your brain hemispheres that way. too. :)

No, I am not deaf, but a very dear friend of mine was, and she taught me a lot about the sign culture, and yes, forced me to learn the diphthong combos by giving me a fantastic practice book back in the 1980's. If a deaf friend gives you a sign book, that is the PERFECT sign that it is a great book, and you'd better learn every doggone sign in it... or else.

BTW, sometimes she and a friend would want me to follow their car to some new place...and I must tell you that there is nothing more disturbing than KNOWING that the driver of the car you are following is carrying on a TWO-HANDED conversation and looking at the passengers while driving. It really makes you alert to the surrounding traffic! And you thought texting was bad...

The cover was cute but quite deceiving as I thought there would be more signs shown. 1-10 and the alphabet were the only signs taught in this book. Even then the letters for J and Z require movement which I believe was not adequately demonstrated.

It looks simple but it is difficute to remember. The images are easy to understand and action. Thank for your sharing.

I was looking for something to teach my children to speak using sign language. This has no words. Just #'s and alphabet
