Auslan, like all sign languages, is a visual form of language. Auslan users rely on hand and body movements of the signer to communicate and make different grammatical structures.
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.
