Communication takes many forms. For the hearing impaired, American Sign Language (ASL) is the key to making themselves heard. With Signing For Dummies, mastering the intricate pattern of handshapes, facial expressions and body language has never been easier.
Designed as an introduction or refresher, the app provides a window into the deaf culture as well as an overview of ASL. Organized into thirteen discrete lessons, Signing For Dummies offers tips, advice, flashcards, and video lessons demonstrating sign language in action. With this app in your pocket, you will learn to
- Introduce and greet people
