Barron’s 500 Flash Cards of American Sign Language feature full-color photos with brief descriptions to help you learn practical signs for everyday usage. This set is ideal for students, teachers, or anyone who is interested in learning American sign language.

Photos appear on the front of each card with meanings, brief descriptions of hand and arm motions, and related words on the back of each card. Where appropriate, the photos include directional arrows that show hand or arm movements. These cards also show the correct formations of hand shapes and facial expressions to eliminate any possible confusion regarding intended word meanings.

Each card has a hole in one corner to accommodate a metal ring included with the boxed set, so you can rearrange the cards in any way you want to study. You can review signs that you have difficulty identifying, or group signs together to form different sentences of your own.
