About NZSL4U

Nau Mai, Haere Mai

NZSL4U is here to empower kiwis to embrace one of our two official languages, Te Reo Rotarota (New Zealand Sign Language).

We have created interactive, engaging, and customized NZSL courses, available both online and in-person, to give New Zealanders better access to learning this beautiful language.


We want our Deaf and hard of hearing community to feel more included in society and be able to communicate fully with their peers.

Are you ready to be part of the kaupapa?

I just wanted to message to say that I have always struggled with languages but NZSL is so different. Thank you so much for being such a fun teacher!

Highly recommend NZSL4U night classes! I honestly leave each session feeling like I could communicate without opening my mouth for the rest of my life.
