AUSLAN Intermediate

Auslan Intermediate (Australian Sign Language) is a visual-gestural language. It is not based on English grammatical system but has its own grammar. Australian Sign Language is the native language of many deaf people and the primary language of many others who have learned it later in life. It is a part of the cultural of the Deaf community and is recognised as a community language. The trainer is a member of Deaf community and the class will be taught in the real world of Deaf people at intermediate level.
