CAIRO BOOKS's Description
"Picture Yourself Learning American Sign Language, Level 1" makes learning to
sign fun and easy, providing the building blocks to help you master your
comprehension of American Sign Language (ASL) at the beginner level. Using a
whole-body approach to signing, you'll learn to convey context and meaning on a
dynamic level involving both facial expressions and HandShapes. The book begins
by teaching you 10 facial expressions, 16 unique HandShapes, and signs to
convey time, space, and location. You'll then be introduced to the
revolutionary "Pick and Say Rubric" that incorporates 90 vocabulary words with
a sentence pattern. Each part of the sentence is assigned a color--red for
time, green for nouns, and blue for actions. The rubric makes learning proper
sentence structure fun and engaging, and simple sentences can be built upon
with the addition of individual vocabulary words. "Picture Yourself Learning
American Sign Language, Level 1" is filled with full-color photographs that
illustrate proper HandShapes formation, and an accompanying DVD that
demonstrates the correct way to form words and sentences, making learning to
sign simple and enjoyable.
