Auslan for beginners

 
 
 

Description

Have you always wanted to learn Auslan (Australian Sign Language) but were too busy, or you simply just want to practice your signs? Living & Learning Nillumbik is hosting an informal and relaxed online course, aimed at beginners and intermediate level students who want to brush up on their skills. We will go through some basic conversational signs, practice signs in pairs, what Auslan is and gain tips on communicating using sign language.

Over the sessions, the tutor will cover basic topics such as:

  • Background information on the Deaf Community and Culture
  • Finger spelling exercises
  • Basic AUSLAN signs for introductions, greetings, and numbers
  • Communication strategies and expressions
