I really enjoy using this DVD for working on receptive skills. I think it’s good for anyone who’s learning ASL or wanting to become an interpreter. It’s really helpful because it’s broken down into chapters that are easy to follow at your own pace. There are many useful activities to practice what you’re learning as you watch the DVD. Each chapter is signed though once for you,then plays again but pausing several times in each chapter to ask questions that focus on what was being fingerspelled, the facts they were discussing or phrases. The signers show great expressions and use of classifiers. I’ve watched it many times and still learn new skills with each use. It also teaches some ASL idioms that are fun to learn! I feel more confidence in my receptive skills since I started using the DVD. I also work with a mentor and she is noticing the improvement to!
