Intermediate Conversational Sign Language
William J. Madsen
“Intermediate Conversational Sign Language is a significant departure from standard dictionary-type sign language books and a valuable tool in helping students develop conversational sign language competence. The text lends insight into the overall realm of human communication and merits a place in the library.”
This fully illustrated text offers a unique approach to using American Sign Language (ASL) and English in a bilingual setting. Each of the 25 lessons involve sign language conversation using colloquialisms that are prevalent in informal conversations. Each lesson includes equivalent expressions in English, plus:
The text also includes practice tests, a bibliography, and a glossed alphabetical index.
Willard J. Madsen is Professor Emeritus of Sign Language at Gallaudet University.
