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 comprises of 27 videos, 2.5 hours of learning, 19 groups of signs, and over 80 set sentences to practice with. At the end of the course we require students to film themselves signing to show us their expressive skills and answer 15 set questions to show us their receptive skills before a certificate in Auslan Level 1 is emailed to you.

The online course aims to be fun, to create opportunities for people to develop their Auslan skills, or to renew and update their Auslan. You will learn basic information about Auslan grammar and the importance of facial expressions and body language in Auslan.

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.

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

The ulimate guide to mastering Auslan Level 1

In this ultimate guide to learning how to communicate with deaf people you will learn over 300 Auslan signs across 19 different categories along with over 70 set sentences in total. This course has voice and signing at the same time as you learn new signs. During the sentence practice your instructor will use voice for the first sentence and then repeats 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 understanding what a deaf person is signing to you.

There is nothing like this online. Master Auslan Level 1 by watching, learning and practicing from these videos over and again.

Good signing!
