Learn to communicate in sign language

Our Auslan course will help open up the channels of communication for families of the hearing impaired, members of the deaf community or their workplace colleagues. Whether it is simply saying hello, finger spelling your name or counting, sign language bridges two different worlds. This course offers a basic cultural and historic understanding of the deaf community. Participants will also learn how to provide simple information in a number of contexts and apply principles of learning AUSLAN as a second language. Course details

How to enrol

TAFE gave me training I could translate into employment.

"TAFE Queensland Brisbane gave me training I could translate into employment straight away. When the time came for further study, I went straight to TAFE Queensland Brisbane again because I knew that was where I would get the skills I needed. I'm now getting more out of my job thanks to TAFE."
