Where can I learn NZSL?
The best way to start is to take an NZSL course with a qualified Deaf teacher. Credit-bearing courses are offered at Victoria University of Wellington and Auckland University of Technology.
Many non-credit courses are offered by local community education providers. These can be located by visiting TeachSign (website of the NZSL Teachers Association) or by contacting your nearest office of Deaf Aotearoa NZ.
