It's New Zealand Sign Language week!
Join our NZSL Challenge!
This NZSL week we're inviting you to join our challenge and introduce yourself in NZSL.
It's fun! It's easy! And it's a great way to showcase New Zealand Sign Langauge and encourage others to learn.
So why not give it a go?
Sign your name in NZSL
To take part in our NZSL week challenge all you need to do is introduce yourself in NZSL. Simply sign "Hello, my name is" and then fingerspelling your name.
Make a quick video of you introducing yourself in NZSL and post it on your social channels during NZSL week (10th -16th May).
Please use the hashtags #NZSLweek #NZSLChallenge
Below are two easy to follow videos that show you how to introduce yourself in NZSL and Fingerspell.
Start learning NZSL today.
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.
