MEDIA REVIEWS
For those planning classes, this book is a gift as the lessons plan themselves * Journal of the British Association of Teachers of the Deaf *
Should be required reading for all beginners, especially parents, to give them an insight into what educating a deaf child really means -- Margaret Crawford, teacher of the deaf, Garvel Deaf Centre * British Deaf News *
A very useful book * British Deaf News *
Great to help further understanding of the language of deaf people . . . A must * The Teacher *
Absolute brilliant book very easy to pick up, I wanted to learn sign language after learning a bit of makaton, I memorised about 10 signs within 10 minutes -- Amazon Reviewer
Having never attempted to learn any form of sign language prior to buying this book, I was suprised how easy it is to learn. This book, although basic, will give you an excellent understanding of British Sign Language and will enable you to get by and form basic sentences and, dare I say it, have conversations by signing. It doesn't pretend to be advanced or an oracle in its field but it really is the best book you can buy if you are starting out learning to sign -- Amazon Reviewer

“I very useful resource book!”

I thought it was very useful when learning level one BSL - there are different topic sections ('Getting To Know You' 'Family, People and Others') with Vocab and a Word puzzle after each section.

“Good addition to my other learning”

Having recently been studying British Sign Language through an online course, I was looking for something to help my memory when it was completed. Like any language, if you do not practise you forget it. This is a... More
