Auslan4Organisations - Essential Workplace Signs is a fun, informative and interactive way to provide the beginner with the most popular workplace signs. This 90-minute online workshop can be tailored to your company or organisation and can take place at a time that is convenient to your group.
Auslan is the majority sign language of the Australian Deaf Community. It has become increasingly popular in recent times due to the high profile exposure of Auslan interpreters on TV, notably at pandemic press conferences.
This workshop is specifically tailored for any company or organisation interested in learning some essential Auslan signs used in your workplace. No previous experience is required as it is designed for beginners - a perfect place to start - a great introduction to Auslan!
If your organisation or company wants to do something a little different while having a lot of fun, this workshop is for you.
