4.6 out of 5 stars    262 ratings

This heavily illustrated, self-teaching guide to ASL–American Sign Language–is useful both for the deaf and for those men and women who teach or work among deaf people. E-Z American Sign Language presents ASL’s 10 key grammatical rules and emphasizes the use of “facial grammar” as an important supplement to manual signing. Most of the book’s content takes the form of a presentation of more than 800 captioned line drawings that illustrate signs for their equivalent words and then show how to combine signs in order to communicate detailed statements. Barron’s E-Z Series books are updated, and re-formatted editions of Barron’s older and perennially popular Easy Way books. Titles in the new E-Z Series feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever. All are self-teaching manuals that cover a wide variety of practical and academic subjects, written on levels that range from senior high school to college-101 standards.

Where appropriate, the photos include directional arrows that show hand or arm movements. These cards also show the correct formations of hand shapes and facial expressions to eliminate any possible confusion regarding intended word meanings.

Each card has a hole in one corner to accommodate a metal ring included with the boxed set, so you can rearrange the cards in any way you want to study. You can review signs that you have difficulty identifying, or group signs together to form different sentences of your own.
