Auslan Courses and Training

As the Australian Deaf Games approaches in 2018, organisers are calling for all local and regional people who have skills in Australian sign language (Auslan) to put up their hands to help out in volunteer or paid roles as interpreters during the games.

It's an opportunity for those who have learned Auslan to take an important role in the games and we have a number of opportunities at sporting venues, opening and closing ceremonies and social events for Auslan trained people to get involved.

We encourage all Auslan trained locals to express their interest by contacting ADG.

What is Auslan?

Auslan is the sign language used by the Australian Deaf community. Auslan conveys meaning through the use of handshapes, movement and location in space in conjunction with facial expressions and the use of finger spelling. It has its own vocabulary and grammar and does not correspond to English - spoken or signed. (Deaf Australia Inc)

Auslan courses are delivered locally via Riverina TAFE and Albury Wodonga Community College (enrolling now).
