BSL is the language used by the Deaf Community in the UK and is an officially recognised language in its own right. It has its own grammar and syntax, which are completely different from the grammatical rules of English. "British Sign Language For Dummies" takes you through grammar and sentence structure, and also presents the vocabulary you need to communicate in a wide variety of everyday situations so you can start to sign right away.BSL is mostly a matter of using your fingers, hands and arms, but facial expression and body language are often crucial for understanding. This title covers starting to sign, everyday BSL, getting out and about and gives the top ten tips to improve your signing skills. This book also teaches the reader about deaf culture so you can get a complete appreciation of signing in context. It is packed with drawings and comes with an accompanying CD Rom which shows a series of conversations in progress so you can see signing in action and ensure you perfect your signing skills. This book is written by a team from The Faculty of Deaf Education and Learning Support at City Lit, led by Karen Considine.The Faculty of Deaf Education and Learning Support provides accredited British Sign Language courses at all levels to both deaf and hearing students.
