Auslan in all schools

Recommended Posts

What do you think about Auslan being taught in all Australian schools? I think it SHOULD be taught in all Australian schools before other languages because it is an Australian language. If all students learnt Auslan then communication will improve between the Deaf and hearing cultures and more opportunities are likely to become available for the Deaf.

Good idea. 

I learnt finger spelling in school to talk to friends in class, and as a teacher taught it to students so they can chat without disturbing the class too...Now I am old and going deaf..hearing loss deaf...I am trying to learn Auslan and am finding it difficult...

Yes, schools should teach Auslan as an optional subject especially as so many people are deaf or going deaf today...its a huge proportion of the population that are deaf...

I tried to sign, but like I said, its too difficult

    • Hello one and all.  I am a new student doing Cert II Auslan and am keen to practice what I have learnt.  With the COVID-19 our classes have gone on line but it makes it very difficult to practice as we don't have face to face at present.  Anyone interested in practicing??  Look forward to hearing from someone out there.  Cheers,
