Not good for beginners

"The video is of good viewing quality and basic content, but the speed of signing is too fast for new students. Advanced students can handle speed but by then, the videos are too elementary. I am in my 4th week of signing classes and had the entire class of 20+ view it to see if I was just too weak at signing. All of them commented basically the same thing, nice video but far too fast for them to handle. None of us felt that the would be good for someone learning. I was looking forward to this as the author is good, but was sorely disappointed in the production."
Excellent for Adult Beginners

"This product contains two DVD's that introduce basic sign language vocabulary and a CD-ROM disc containing a visual sign language dictionary and sign language games. The hosts sign all their verbal explanations at normal signing speed, but you have plenty of opportunity to learn each sign at a learner's speed. There are dramatizations of sign language conversations. You gain more knowledge of sign language each time you watch these two DVD's, and you learn not only to sign, but to read others' sign language. The sign language dictionary has video clips of real people signing each entry. Very helpful. I highly recommend this product for adult beginners of sign language."

"Way too fast, and the teacher would sign unlear and the "student" who obviously actually knew ASL would sign better! So follow the "students". NOT CLOSED CAPTIONED!!! I find that very hard to believe. I HIGHLY reccomend "Signing Made Easy" with Anthony Natale...perfect intro DVD to ASL and also deaf CULTURE!"

"The video is fast for new students but helpful still.. Some of signs were hard to see due to camera showing from a far distance. The CD-Room is very helpful though you need to have the cd in order to run..... But still it's good to double check your work while taking a ASL class. What i also enjoy is that they give two ways of signing for the same word."
