This book was recommended as the manual for my American Sign Language class at the School for the Deaf in St. George Utah. I really appreciate the vocabulary of the book, but even more I feel that the grammatical guide has been the most helpful in guiding me as I try to switch from English to American Sign Language grammatical form. Each of the vocabulary is show by illustration of models performing the sign. The facial expressions are illustrated and very helpful in identifying how to correctly convey the sign in true ASL form. There is sufficient practice pages that ask you to sign an English sentence in ASL and often they will give you the ASL translation to help the transition between the languages. Very effective for practicing.
