Decode ASL with guidance from a Gallaudet University professor and a helpful DVD. Great as a supplement to a high-school or college course or for self-study, American Sign Language Demystified walks you step-by-step through the fundamentals of this visual language. At your own pace, you will learn basic grammar structures, discover the nuances of body language in ASL, master how to convey time versus verb tense in other languages, and build a useful ASL vocabulary of signs and phrases.
Throughout the book you can monitor your progress through self-tests, and a comprehensive final exam at the end of the book gives instant feedback on new language skills. The book also features 150 photos of signing in progress as well as a 90-minute DVD of phrases and conversations in ASL.
