Sign Language Companion: A Handbook of British Signs (Paperback)Cath Smith (author)
'Great to help further understanding of the language of deaf people' The Teacher
This new cover edition of Sign Language Companion offers a clear introduction to British Sign Language, featuring over 400 illustrations of common signs. Helpfully formatted in groups of linked ideas, it allows the development of real conversations immediately. British Sign Language (BSL) is Britain's fourth most popular language, and for the Deaf community it is the most fluent means of communication - and the most direct way for hearing people to interact with the deaf.
Sign Language Companion is for all BSL students, and covers topics including:
- Getting to know you
- Sharing ideas and interests
- Feelings and building relationships
- Food and drink
With a new preface and updated resources, Sign Language Companion is an essential classic that has stood the test of time - an invaluable reference for all learners of BSL of any age.
