Learn how to communicate 150 common Auslan signs, such as, “please”, “thanks” and “how are you?”. Each sign is clearly presented, with a photo of the handshape used to form the sign and a video clip demonstrating how the sign is produced.

The app also includes the Auslan alphabet, so you can learn how to fingerspell and sign the numbers 0-10.

Auslan Tutor: Key Signs was developed by staff at NextSense, in consultation with expert Auslan users.
