For Individuals and Groups

8 x 1 Hour Sessions

Our classes are fully immersive, meaning that we communicate entirely in sign language during the session. We have been told that for some hearing people who have noisy children, the quiet classes are actually bliss… *wink*

We promise there’s nothing to be scared about – NZSL4U is fun and engaging and you’ll be surprised at what you can understand. NZSL is for all ages and it’s never too late to start!

We also recommend that you practice as much as you can! The best way is to communicate in NZSL as much as possible. Make friends with others learning NZSL in your community, or Deaf and hard of hearing who use NZSL on the daily and get communicating. Make the most of the online resources, attend local meet ups and, of course, be sure to attend our annual NZSL4U camp.

NZSL Level 1A

This is a beginner class – so even if you don’t know anything about Sign Language, this is a great place to start! In this class we go through Deaf culture and Deaf awareness and start teaching the basics – like “Hello” “Kia Ora” and “How are you” – plus many more!

NZSL Level 1B

After you have completed 1A, you move on to the next level – Level 1B. In this class, we learn more of your everyday language – such as emotions and feelings, counting, relationships, telling the time and more!

NZSL Level 1C

The next step in your NZSL journey is Level 1C where you will learn how to put your actions into basic sentences, and you’ll master the art of “small talk”. We also go through actions about community and work in this module.

NZSL Level 1D

This is your final module – and involves going through all of your learnings from Level 1A, 1B & 1C to help you get a deeper understanding of NZSL. After this, you should feel confident to use NZSL as part of your daily “communicating”.

NZSL Level 2A

Get ready to level up your NZSL! This course is for those that have completed Level 1 and are ready to go to the next step. This course will help you to communicate more in depth with the Deaf community, from giving chores to discussing your extended whānau and a lot more in between!
