Insights into the lives of people in the Deaf community is presented in each of the ten lessons and include topics about using your new found ASL skills in a conversation with a Deaf person, the different meanings that an ASL sign might have, varying the meaning of an ASL sign by changes in sign movement and facial expressions, reasons that senior citizens should learn to sign, an age-old Deaf joke popular amongst the younger generation, a look at how Deaf people stayed in touch with one another in the days before TTY and email communication, and behaviors that indicate a person is becoming deaf.
