"Auslan is our passion and our goal is to

provide everyone with the opportunity to learn Auslan"


Learn Auslan Online is proud to present this Auslan Level 1 Online course.

The course is comprised of 28 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. Your enrolment also comes with a lifetime of access, meaning you will never be locked out of the course, even after you complete it. 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.

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.

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.

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.

This course is not an accredited Auslan course. (Accredited courses are 2-3 nights a week or full time days at a TAFE or Uni.)

In each category there is a PDF that lists each sign and sentence used in the video to make it easy for you to practice without watching the video again. To download, please copy and paste to a new word document

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

Our Feedback:

"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)

'My Daddy is Deaf' book


My Daddy is Deaf is story from the perspective of a child of what it’s like to have a deaf Dad. His ears may not work and he uses flashing lights around the house to tell him things (like when he’s burning the food!) but he is the same caring, funny, and loveable Dad with hobbies and interests just like others. 

This book is perfect for families, childcare centres and primary schools as an insight into being Deaf.

You can order a copy of the book by emailing Darren at:
