HELLO AUSLAN

 
   

ABOUT US


Hello Auslan is created by Susan McConnell, a fourth generation Deaf and native Auslan user.

Susan worked as a Teacher of the Deaf for almost 10 years, and also taught LOTE Auslan in primary schools, as well as VCE Auslan in high schools (Years 11 and 12).

She loves creating and illustrating Auslan games and activities, especially for use in schools, and for families, with the goal of making learning Auslan enjoyable.


For Parents:
The more Auslan parents learn, the more they will be able to use it with their child, and the more enriched their child's language will be, because for the Deaf child, Auslan can be easily learnt as a first language foundation which will in turn, make learning English so much easier as a second language.

There is no need to make it complicated... just learn Auslan, the beautiful language of the Deaf community in Australia, and see your child thrive in communication and understanding! :)

For Teachers:
Schools now require Auslan teachers to be able teach Auslan effectively as a second language, using the Australian Curriculum. Many teachers (as was my experience first hand) find it time consuming to create quality Auslan teaching materials, or even try to find quality Auslan resources anywhere.

For this reason, I have invested many hours into creating quality Auslan resources especially for teachers, to save them time, so that they can teach effectively to their students. You can find teacher-related Auslan resources in www.auslanresources.com.au


South Dialect Auslan

Auslan signs used in this website are from the Victorian state which uses Southern Dialect Auslan (Vic, Tas, SA and WA).

Most of the signs are the same all over Australia (except for colours), and most Deaf people have no trouble understanding each other, however, if you are learning Auslan, and from a state other than Victoria, you may like to double check with the signs that they are the same that your state uses.

You can ask a person who is knowledgeable about the signs in your state to have a look at the signs in here and let you know which signs are different, or you can look it up in an online Auslan Dictionary in www.auslan.org.au as it will show Northern and Southern dialects.
