New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) is one of New Zealand's three 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.
