Are there different kinds of Sign Language?

American Sign Language is a language just as Spanish is a language. The most well-known signing systems are SEE (Signing Exact English), SE (Signed English), CASE (Conceptually Accurate Signed English), and Pidgin (a mixture of ASL and CASE). These signing systems are not languages, but are connected to English grammar. Most beginners who learn Sign Language from a book start with Signed English, since they may not know ASL grammar.
