OVERVIEW

 

Sign Language 2 continues the unique and fun experience of learning how to communicate visually using Auslan (Australian sign language), the native language of the Australian Deaf Community. Sign Language 2 is now offered online! Choose from either our online, live course options, or as face-to-face study in a classroom environment. 

 

 

By the end of Sign Language 2 in our Online environment, students will be able to: 

  • Talk in more detail about holidays, the weather and the seasons
  • Talk about everyday life including work and family
  • Talk about hobbies, interests and other activities
  • Use non-manual features to express yourself
  • Use more advanced visual-gestural communication strategies

This course can be funded using your NDIS plan. All you need to do is fill out this form and we will send you a service agreement to sign. The NDIS line item number this will be charged against is 03_089_0121_1_1

ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE:  Sign Online or Sign Language 1 

Sign Language 2 with The Deaf Society is offered in both in an online, live class format or in a face-to-face classroom setting. Scroll down to enrol!

 

Online Structure: 

Each week you get access to a brand new video with all the signs for the week, plus a live online class with a deaf teacher where you will practice your Auslan skills for 1-2 hours. You will be in a small, live class through Zoom, interacting with your classmates and teacher. You will need a laptop or desktop computer so that you can see everything clearly (no phones or tablets please). 

 

Face-to-face structure: 

Just like Sign Language 1, classes are run from a physical location that you choose when you enrol. Attendance each week in class is required. Meet and practice your new skills with others in a small group setting.

 

About the course: 

Sign Language 2 is the next course in our beginner series and is offered following NSW public school terms. Participants register into an evening or day time class of their choice, with most classes offered from 6:30pm – 8:30pm once per week for seven weeks. The day program runs at 10am on Tuesdays. This short course commences every year in January/February, April/May, July/August and October. The online delivery is new, allowing participants to join from the comfort of your own home, so that location is no barrier.

 

Minimum age: 

The minimum age to enrol in Sign Language 2 is sixteen years. 

 

Disability: 

If you have a disability or medical condition that we need to be aware of, or if you need additional information or support, please contact us.
