Purchase Learning Sign Language
Of course the book is about learning sign language. However, it isn’t a list of vocabulary and a bunch of pictures. There are many great sign language dictionaries that you can find and use. My book is a book full of tips and tricks on how to learn sign language quickly. Some of the information I have shared here at LearnSigns.com, but some of it is much more advanced than where we currently are with the lessons.
Remember the lesson on fingerspelling? Now you can get all the information in one place written in such a way that you can put to practice the exercises I suggest and finally get a handle on spelling well. It should not take more than a couple of weeks to become a better fingerspeller. With the information in the book you will get better if you will learn what I teach.
There is a much more detailed explanation on how to notate signs than I was able to give in the video. You will learn the 5 elements of each sign and how to clearly and quickly put them down on paper so that you never have to forget how to do a sign again.
There is a large section on reading sign language. This is something we have not covered in the videos at any length, but a skill that you need to begin to master as you learn more vocabulary and begin to carry on real conversations in sign language.
Who is the book for?
Anyone taking sign language lessons from any teacher can benefit from this book. It is not required to be a new student at LearnSigns.com to get value from the content. The information can be used by any student who desires to learn sign language as quickly as possible.
You may not even be learning American Sign Language to benefit from this book. In 25 years as a student of sign language, interpreter and teacher of signs, I have traveled extensively and learned several other signed languages. Many of the principles in the book are applicable to other signed languages. If your interest in signs falls outside of ASL, or you would like to learn another signed language then this book is for you.
I need your help.
Besides the Kindle, Nook and Kobo readers, where else do I need to concentrate my efforts on making a well formatted book for you and your platform of choice?
Please leave a comment below or send me an email if you have a prefered store outside of the Kindle/Nook/Kobo stores. Leaving a comment or emailing me will not obligate you to buy the book. I only need to know what your interest is. And, if there is just one person who writes me and asks for a certain format/platform, I will do my best to make it available for you. Don’t hesitate to speak up.
Learning to Sign is available for just $5 for the first two weeks. After that the price will be $8. Because of various ebook platforms and their rules, I can’t offer it for a cheaper price in one place than I do everywhere else. Therefore, if you want the cheaper price, I need to know your platform of choice as quickly a possible so I can have it ready for you.
