Signing Exact English

Signing Exact English

Signing Exact English (S.E.E.) is a sign language system that represents literal English. It is a tool to make visible everything that is not heard. Since American Sign Language (ASL) has different vocabulary, idioms, and syntax from English, SEE modifies and supplements the vocabulary of ASL so children/students can see clearly what is said in English.

S.E.E. Center

The SEE Center provides quality training and support for those who use Signing Exact English. On this website, you will be able to find upcoming workshops and testing sites that are happening in your area and around the country. Please also join us on our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you at a class or skillshop in the near future.
