AUSLAN LEVEL 1 USB (produced in November 2013)

The Auslan Level 1 USB covers 18 category of signs and teaches over 300 Auslan signs along with 70 set sentences.  You will also learn about Auslan grammar.  This is based on my community level 1 course and is designed for:

  • Students attending the community based Auslan courses
  • Individuals and families wanting to learn Auslan at home in their own time
  • For people in rural and remote Australia who are unable to access community courses
  • You can view a preview of the DVD here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI8PDDhoNx8

The DVD contains voice, captions and Auslan signing.

Additionally the DVD contains:

1) Over 300 signs from the following categories;

Questions, Alphabet (left and right hand) Numbers (including date, time, age and money) Money, Greetings, Common phrases, Instructions, Timelines, Family, Emotion, Food and drink, In the Community, Social activities, Transport, Animals, Colours, Australian states and some countries

2) Plus the alphabet (both left and right handed)

3) Numbers (including dates, times, ages)

4) Information about Auslan grammar

5) 3–5 sentences to practice at the end of most categories

6) 15 sentences to respond to as a test at the end of the DVD (end of week 6)

The course workbook on the USB is the workbook we use in the classroom and contains;

1) Grammar information (additional to what is on the DVD)

2) All the photos of each sign on the DVD (each photo contains arrows showing the movement of the hands)

3) Additional sentences at the end of each signing category to practice with

4) You can print from the USB and make your own hardcopy if you prefer

5) A list of all the signs (a full list of signs by week and an alphabetical list is included)

A-Z OF EVERYDAY AUSLAN SIGNS DVD (produced in November 2011)

The Auslan A-Z of Everyday Auslan Signs DVD is like a dictionary of Auslan signs.  You can view a short 3 minute clip here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0GM8xZI7v0

The DVD contains over 1350 everyday Auslan signs.  There is a searchable index.  Look for the word - "Auslan".  Go to "A" then search for 'Auslan' then click on the word and watch it signed twice; slow speed then again in normal speed. (alongside the person signing is the actual word "Auslan".

This DVD is for people wanting to learn specific signs or have completed level 1 and want to learn additional signs (there are signs in this DVD that have previously been taught in level 1). 

The advantage of this DVD over a photograph dictionary of Auslan signs is that you can see how the signs move so you can copy them ACCURATELY rather than guessing how to sign them from a 2D photograph.

Both DVD's give you the skills to communicate in Auslan and along with the email workbook are also a fantastic resource as an Auslan student.

AUSLAN FOR CHILDREN DVD (produced in 2007)

This DVD is an older DVD but still a good one.  All 350 signs across 19 categories such as alphabet, numbers, greetings, pleasantries, families, transport, colors, animals, emotions, instructions, food and drink for example are signed with voiceover by a 9 yo girl.  This DVD is aimed at families with young children and babies wanting a simple introduction to Auslan signs so they can learn together and share it as a family. 

This DVD is also a great introduction to Auslan signs for schools, disability organisations, group homes and for university students wanting an introduction to Auslan signs.

On this DVD, unlike the Level 1 DVD, there are no grammatical information.  This is simply a set of signs within a set of categories.
