Auslan (Australian Sign Language) is the native language of many Deaf people and the primary language of many others who have learned it later in life. It is part of the culture of the Deaf community and is recognised as a community language. Auslan is a visual-gestural language which uses hand, arm and body movements to convey meaning and has its own grammatical system that is different to that of the English language. Being able to communicate with Deaf people is a great skill to have and is particularly useful for those working in the health, community services and education sectors. As the trainer is a member of the Deaf community the class will be taught in the real world of Deaf people.
This course will include the following:
Exchanging personal information
Talking about your family
Giving Commands: Objects in the Classroom
Culture: getting attention
Narrating Experience with Language
Students need to attend 75% of the course to be eligible to receive a Certificate of Achievement on the final day.
