Barron's 500 Flash Cards of American Sign Language
by Gerffrey S. Poor - Professor of ASL National Technical Institute for the Deaf
This set of flash cards comes color coded, numbered and in Alphabetical order. All of the signs are shown with two to four photographs on the front of each card. Each photo reflecting hand and finger formation, facial expression and directional arrows where appropriate. The back of the card includes the name of the sign, the written description of hand and finger formation for the sign and relevant words to the sign and there card number. The set is hole punched and includes a small metal ring. The pack suggests that the ring is included so the reader can group signs together and form different sentences.
These are great for older children and adults who are looking for a way to study ASL. You would need to have a basic understand of hand shape and finger formations to use these flash cards, because they are not explained in the set. They are not a quick reference since there is not a list of the signs included. You have to look through each letter to find what you are looking for. I am enjoying them, but they are a little to advantage for my children who are 7, 4 and 5 months. They are reasonably priced and a great addition to someone looking to increase there ASL fluency.
