About Us

MyAuslan Academy Aim:

MyAuslan Academy aims to provide an easy, accessible and innovative portal to learning Auslan, and an understanding of the culture it supports.

We offer courses designed for:

  • Families and friends of deaf children or adults.
  • Anyone who regularly encounters deaf people as customers/clients/patients etc in a range of occupations.
  • Deaf people of any age who wants a deeper understanding of their language and culture.

What’s Involved?

  • MyAuslan courses are all easily digestible chunks of learning. Choose the ones most relevant or interesting for you.
  • Courses are offered as a blended format combining online self-paced modules, with small group “zoom-torials”, as well as work-books or worksheets. One on one tutoring is also available for an additional cost.
  • For those who prefer you can purchase the online modules only.
  • Each course is designed to take 2-3 hours in total. We recommend a minimum of 15 minutes per day.
  • A proud Deaf bilingual native Auslan user (quite a mouthful, eh?), a mother to 4 non-deaf human kids and a large collection of furry & feathery kids.
  • A bibliophile and a writer.
  • Taught Auslan for over 30 years to people from 0 to 99 (yes, I like Lego).
  • Degrees in Linguistics, Education, and Family History (I know – I am a geek!).
  • A hunter and collector of both dead and living deaf people in Australia.
  • Fun fact – I have over 15 deaf relatives in my family, spanning 4 generations.
