Course testimonials:

  • Misato said: I highly recommend this course. The teacher Margaret was very lovely and she made us students enjoy every lesson. A lot of interactive activities was going on and all I felt was "fun". Because it was so fun, I have already signed up for Sign Language 2.

  • Akosua said: Not sure, but my difficulty is claustrophobic and so getting on lifts was an issue

  • Kate said: I had such a fun time learning basic Auslan with Kristen. She was patient, engaging and enthusiastic and took the time to make sure we were all learning at the same pace. I’m really looking forward to learning Part 2.
