Auslan is our passion and our goal is to provide everyone

with the opportunity to learn Auslan

The Auslan Company is proud to present this Auslan Level 1 Online course.

The course is comprised of 27 videos, 500+ signs across 19 categories, and over 80 set sentences to practice with. The course is 100% online and as the videos are all prerecorded you can work through the course at times that are convenient to you.

The online course aims to be fun and to create opportunities for people to develop, renew or update their Auslan skills. You will learn basic information about Auslan grammar and the importance of facial expressions and body language in Auslan. However, please be aware that this is not an accredited Auslan course.

Once you've enrolled into the course you will have full and immediate access to all of the videos. There are no restrictions on how many times you can replay a video nor is there a time limit on you having to complete the course.

At the end of the course there is two part assessment for us assess your receptive (understanding what is being signed) and expressive (signing yourself) Auslan skills before we can provide you with your level 1 certificate.

As a special gift for those that complete the course, when you email us your final assessment you will receive back a link to our library of Auslan songs, nursery rhymes, and stories, as well as a link to our private Facebook group for you to connect and practice with other Auslan learners.

There is a comment section after each lecture where you can ask myself or the school community questions about signs or information you are unsure about.

In each category there is a downloadable PDF that lists each sign and sentence used in the video to make it easy for you to practice without watching the video again.

We love getting feedback so if you have ideas for improving or just want to say "good job" that is appreciated.

I hope you enjoy learning Auslan in this online course and thank you for your interest in Auslan and the Deaf community.

"Darren, thank you so much for the way in which you presented Auslan Level 1. You brought humour into it, which I love and made it an enjoyable language to learn. Categorising and breaking it down the way you did was helpful to get through and refer back when needed" - Nada Cevizovic (level 1 student)

The ulimate guide to mastering Auslan Level 1

In this level 1 Auslan course you will learn over 500 Auslan signs across 19 different categories and 80 set sentences to practice with. This course has voice and signing at the same time as you learn new signs. During the sentence practice Darren will use voice for the first sentence and then repeat the sentence without voice.

This way you will master both your expressive and receptive skills that are a vital aspect of being able to sign to a deaf person and to understand what a deaf person is signing to you.

Happy signing!
