Along with an introduction lesson, there are fourteen lessons that cover the phonemes corresponding with each hand shape and hand placement. Each of those lessons include videos that you can watch while practicing your cueing.
The instructor will lead you through the introduction and fourteen lessons through recorded videos. Office hours also will be offered for those looking to get feedback.
