Our Auslan Courses
Auslan or Australian Sign Language is the language of the Australian Deaf Community. It’s a unique and rich visual language. Through fluid motions, pictures unfold before your eyes and come to life. All our courses are taught by everyday users of Auslan who will share the nuances of this beautiful language in a supportive environment.
