My newest book, written with Janna M. Sweenie is titled Picture Yourself Learning American Sign Language, Level 1 and you can now buy it directly from Amazon.com and at Barnes and Noble and from your nearby bookstore!
Picture Yourself Learning American Sign Language, Level 1 is our second ASL book that employs our “Deaf Way” of Hardcore ASL teaching.
We have a DVD bundled with the book so you can learn ASL with us in real time!
The most inventive measure of our new book is the “Pick and Say Rubric” that leads you to create quick — “three idea” — sentences constructed in ASL.
You just pick one or more words/ideas from a RED column, a GREEN column and a BLUE column and then sign them in sequence. Easy!
Using that rubric method you can forge more than 27,000 American Sign Language phrases by learning only 90 words — and getting to understand how to “Pick and Say” takes less than 10 seconds.
I know you’ll love the book. You can use the book as a base for understanding Deaf Culture and for learning an exciting foreign language.
If you have any thoughts or feedback, please find me and share your mind!
