Learn NZSL

This May, we celebrated New Zealand Sign Language Week!


NZSL Week is all about celebrating the unique and vibrant language of the Deaf community in Aotearoa. It's a great time for everyone to come together and learn about the importance of NZSL in promoting greater understanding and inclusivity.


While NZSL Week is over for the year, the learning journey doesn’t have to be. Check out these amazing free resources below to further your learning.

New Zealand Sign Language Posters


New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) is one of New Zealand's official languages through the New Zealand Sign Language Act 2006.


NZSL is a beautiful and expressive language that is used by the Deaf community. But anyone can learn!  As more New Zealanders learn to sign the more accessible and inclusive our society will become.​

Download our fingerspelling and basic signs for the classroom posters to help support your learning this NZSL Week and beyond.
