I established Learn Auslan Online in May 2020 and as of 2021 I have been teaching Auslan professionally for 18 years. I am passionate about teaching Auslan and l hope you become passionate about learning Auslan as well
Since its launch Learn Auslan Online have received enrolments from a wide array of people including: emergency services staff, hospital staff, primary school teachers, childcare educators, university students, families with deaf children, workplaces with deaf colleagues or customers and people just wanting to learn Auslan for fun and to learn a new skill.
Having fathered three children myself, I have seen first hand the benefits learning Auslan can have for an infant. I do not advocate that learning Auslan as a baby / toddler makes children smarter, however it does make them more alert, watchful, and have good eye contact. They are also bilingual which is fantastic for their brain development.
Auslan is great fun to learn and l hope you share the language with your family and friends too.
