Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) have evolved from forms of British Sign Language (BSL) and together the three languages comprise the BANZSL language family. They share many of the same vocabulary items and structural features in addition to the use of the same two-handed fingerspelling alphabet.
Because of these similarities, the Lets Sign BSL resources have been useful to learners of Auslan and NZSL. This includes people wishing to communicate within the Deaf
community and also increasingly in the field of Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Baby Signing, where signs are used with spoken language to support communication and language development known as Sign Supported English (SSE).
Due to requests, this resource has been created to include signs specifically for Australian and New Zealand learners and we welcome your feedback in planning any future materials.
