New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) is the natural language of the Deaf community in New Zealand - it reflects the country's culture and includes signs for Maori terminology and concepts unique to New Zealand. As an official New Zealand language, NZSLis used daily by more than 24,000 New Zealanders.
Sign Language is a combination of hand shapes, facial expressions and body movements. It is not simply signed representations of spoken words.
