Auslan Classes

As a part of our services we offer a variety of linguistic and cultural training for those wishing to learn more about the Australian Deaf community.

Auslan is the language used by the majority of Deaf Australian’s and is has bee recognised as an official language since 1991. Here at Access Plus we offer classes for beginners wanting to learn, and for those with a bit more experience or those who are keen to go on to formalise their language acquisition

Our current classes run for 16 hours which can occur in either 2 hours blocks, weekly or bi-weekly or over a weekend. You can also request to have a tailored class taught to a smaller group, in your workplace, or with your family.
