Auslan (Australian Sign Language) is the natural language used by Australia’s Deaf community and the preferred signing language of hard-of-hearing people in Australia.

Many people think Auslan is exclusively for Deaf people, but this is not true. Auslan is used by hearing and hard-of-hearing people as another way to communicate with their Deaf friends, colleagues and family members. Learning Auslan is fun, engaging and easy.
