Product Description
ASL is a unique language with its own grammatical rules and syntax (sentence structure). In ASL the entire body is used expressively to convey information. With ASL you have to abandon "English thinking" and think visually. American Sign Language is a complex visual-spatial language that shares no grammatical similarities to English. Hand gestures, facial features such as eyebrow motion and lip-mouth movements are significant in ASL as they form a crucial part of the grammatical system.

Remember, there is much more to learning American Sign Language than just memorizing signs. ASL has its own grammar, culture, history, terminology and other important aspects. It takes time and effort to become a "skilled language user." But you have to start somewhere if you are going to get anywhere--so dive in and enjoy.
