Learning Chinese with Signs is a supplementary textbook which is suitable for youth in North America using signs commonly seen in mainland China, Taiwan and Chinese communities across America. It also provides supplementary material for learners at Beginning to Intermediate Levels. It can be used for both native speakers of English, and those who can use English as an intermediary language.

This textbook was written according to the core concepts presented in "The Standards for Foreign Language Education in the 21st Century" by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Included here are "the 5Cs": Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparison and Communities; and the three modes of communication: interpersonal, interpretive and presentational. Focus is placed on the practical functions of language. The contents are diverse and include both graphics as well as text. Learners are exposed to authentic and common written Chinese in the goal of broadening their horizons. Each topic presented is accompanied by various forms of interesting exercises that allow learners to compare cultures, express their views and develop problem-solving skills.
