    An amazing tool for anybody beginning sign language Lots of really useful words and phrases and it s very easy to read The signs aren t in alphabetical order which I found a bit annoying but there is a glossary and the signs are all split in to sections They also have diagrams to show parts of the hand and the shapes you make so it s really helpful.

    Very basic book and not really that useful, so given to my niece whi is just 11 It was in great condition though and brilliant value for money I would definitely use this seller again and highly recommend them.
