Learning some basic NZSL means you can communicate with NZ’s Deaf community more easily. NZSL knowledge is useful in all areas of life, but it is especially useful if you work in any kind of role that includes contact with the public, such as retail, health care and customer service, where you may come into contact with Deaf customers or consumers. Having some basic NZSL skills means you can comfortably communicate with Deaf people, and makes it much easier for them to access information in their everyday lives. Students must have completed New Zealand Sign Language Level 1A & 1B, before they can enrol in Level 1C

Learning some basic conversational NZSL in our classes is interactive, easy and fun. Come and give it a try!
