This is the ASL instruction manual you've been looking for, the one that makes home learning easier, the "user-friendly" ASL text and video. Written by two leading authorities in the field, this newly revised book is designed to help learners successfully interact with Deaf ASL users, and is used as the basic text for a one semester or full-year course in ASL. Lessons are structured around the everyday language of ASL users in a natural, predictable order and include dialogues, grammar instruction, exercises, and vocabulary lists. [Tom Humphries, Carol Padden; Second Edition (2003) Book: 384 pages; soft cover]
The DVD features over 72 exercises and each of the key structures in the book. Four internationally recognized Deaf actors animate the dialogues and give life to the illustrations in the text. The actors also model facial expressions and conversational gestures appropriate to ASL.
