Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lesson; easy to follow and remember I used to see polls somewhere (Facebook?) about what new courses we'd like to see offered by The Great Courses. Every time, I mention American Sign Language as the one I'd most like. PLEASE continue this course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic pilot I wish there was more! The pacing was very very helpful. Whenever I worried that I had missed something it would be repeated again and again, so you can just focus on tweaking your hand position to be more articulate.
