Shows you dynamic, real-life demonstrations of 450 signs. Seeing actual ASL movement improves your vocabulary by making the language come alive. Includes built in quizzes to see how many signs you’ve learned. Explore 21 useful vocabulary categories including Animals, Numbers, Sports, and many more - all demonstrated by real Deaf people who are native ASL signers.
Where is the text? To encourage you to visualize ASL, this compilation of vocabulary appears alongside practical illustrations instead of English words. The only exception is the word "Deaf" which we recognize as the preferred term among members of the community whose primary mode of communication is American Sign Language.
Because ASL is a visual language, this dynamic CD-ROM helps build your vocabulary by showing you the actual movement for 450 signs. There are 21 categories including Animals, Numbers, Sports, and many more. You can practice as much as you want, then take a quiz and print your scores.
Sign variation. There are many vocabulary items that have more than one sign just as English has different words for the same concept (for example: couch, sofa, davenport). ASL is a living language with regional variations. In this volume of basic vocabulary, we show only one sign to avoid confusing beginners.
Learning to rely on your eyes and not your ears is challenging for new signers. Visualize ASL materials reinforce visual learning by having educational software that is purely visual; there is no audio on this CD-ROM.
