The organization of the volume makes it easier for students to learn. It provides a basic, functional sign vocabulary; a systematic progression in the use of the 14 sign markers; discussion of the unique features of a manual English system; a glossary of terms; and a page of exercises following each of the 12 chapters in the book. The words have been carefully selected to be of most value to young children.Bornstein, Harry is the author of 'Signed English Starter', published 1984 under ISBN 9780913580820 and ISBN 0913580821.
