Deaf Services offers a range of Community Auslan classes aimed at introducing basic Auslan
conversational skills to participants. Community Auslan Introduction is designed for people with no previous language skill or knowledge of Auslan. You will learn basic skills to communicate with Deaf people in Auslan on a range of topics that involve simple, everyday language. The community courses are easy, fun, informal and relaxed.

Due to the current situation we are facing with regards to the Coronavirus and adhering to the Australian Government's physical distancing rules, we will not be able to offer face to face classes until we are advised it is safe to do so. However, we are very excited to be offering our Community Auslan Introduction classes for the very first time online.

Our virtual classes are delivered via Zoom. In order to attend the virtual classes, you require:

  • a computer/laptop
  • an inbuilt camera or webcam
  • have reliable internet connection.

The method we are using to deliver our classes comprises of watching a 1 hour pre-class weekly video lesson, as well as attending a 45 minute virtual class with your teacher and fellow participants. Check out our classes below for timeslots we have available.

Each class is limited to 8 people, so enrol now and don't miss out!
