Publisher Comments:

For the fourth most used language in the United States, there has not previously been a manual that did more than simply show how to make individual signs. Signing Made Easy teaches how to use signing as a language.

About the Author

Mickey Flodin is the author of Signing Everyday Phrases, Signing for Kids, Signing is Fun, Signing Illustrated, and co-author, with Rod R. Butterworth, of The Perigee Visual Dictionary of Signing, The Pocket Dictionary of Signing, and Signing Made Easy.

I stumbled across this book at my school's library. I checked it out in an attept to learn ASL. This book is NOT an ASL dictionary, but in fact teaches Signed English. Signed English is not a language, but a Manually Coded System of English. I did NOT retain any signs from this book, nor did I have fun reading it! A much better alternative would be to take an ASL or Signed English class. I just did not think the book was good.
