Signing naturally level 1 pdf
Signing Naturally: [Student Workbook, Units 1-6] by Cheri SmithThis newer (2008) version of Signing Naturally Units 1-6 is AMAZING!! If you want to learn American Sign Language, buy this book/DVD set. Its masterfully and thoughtfully compiled to teach nearly 1000 signs in six units.
Signing Naturally was the text for my ASL 101 class this semester. I was consistently impressed with how well the book and DVDs were integrated, and how expertly the DVDs utilized technology to facilitate practice of a signed language. Its fast-paced, but the book is very accessible. The DVDs make it possible to go over a section, a story, or a particular sign again and again. The sections on Deaf history and culture are informative and extremely helpful to understanding the community. My husband took this same class some years ago with an earlier version of the book and says the difference is night and day.
Be warned, if youre using this book to self-teach, that some of the signs used are local to California. My New York-bred Deaf professor (who now lives in Maine) often complained about that and corrected signs that she thought were from a West Coast dialect. Of course, thats to be expected--ASL, like English, has its own regional variations--but to a beginning signer I wanted to learn the right way. Also, sometimes later in the book they introduce new vocabulary that is actually very basic and do not introduce some signs that genuinely are new.
I am already bracing myself for disappointment next semester, since the following Signing Naturally book has not been re-released and is dozens of years old. :(
This one, however, is a keeper. I expect to return to it as a language resource for years to come.
