Multilingual e-book, open to everyone: Deaf and Hearing persons, from any country.
This is not a complete course of language, but, as the name suggests, it aims to be ready for use, available in every situation and practical, like a handbag with everything we need in it. Since the best way to learn a language is to use it and all attempts to have sign languages in a written form have failed, the new technologies can help us. In particular an e-book shares some characteristics with sign languages: it is visual, dynamic, innovative, interactive, always up-to-date, so it can be a great tool in order to learn this kind of languages and it is accessible from every aspect because it is suitable for everyone and really economic. This kind of technology allows constant and immediate updating, so as to keep up with the changes of a living language and a living culture, such as the Deaf culture! The structure is simple and immediately comprehensible, divided into thematic chapters and the grammar structure is shown through examples of some easy sentences.
There is no better way to understand the people you meet and their culture than by learning their own language.
So, feel like a sub or a tea bag and “dive” in this world!
