Save Your Money

"I did not find the dvd's helpful. The two folks in the 1st video sign entirely too fast plus the back ground for the host and hostess was horrible and it was tough making out their signs. What 'is' of use in the video (both) I learned more easily from 'TALKING WITH YOUR HANDS, LISTENING WITH YOUR EYES'-Gabriel Grayson, also obtained via Amazon, and much more for your money. In Fact, skip the video's and buy 2 copies of the book because you will easily wear the book out if you are serious about learning sign on your own.
The 2nd video of this 2 set collection was a little better, clarifying the alphabet, but, save your money for maybe another video, or again, 2 of the Gabriel Grayson books.
I showed the 1st video to my deaf friend to get his opinion. He looked at me,laughed, and shook his head no. He said it was too fast for someone new and he didn't care for the presentation. I didn't bother to show him the 2nd video."
Good for beginners

"This is a good format for someone just learning sign language. I bought it to use with high school freshmen, and it was just a little boring for them. Most of the signs are presented with adequate time to practice them, but the alphabet was presented way too quickly. I had to stop several times and repeat it. It lacks entertainment value, but is factual and groups signs well."
Sign Language DVD Difficult To Use

"I found that the Sign Language DVD was not easy to use. The DVD has two people signing to each other in multiple chapters. I thought it was difficult to follow some of the signs and sometimes very difficult to tell which sign went with which word. I felt myself constantly rewinding to see if I could figure it out."

"Is ok- but speech/audio track is off. Hard for people who lip read to follow. Have to rewind many time to get time to practice signs.
