Welcome to New Zealand Sign Language Week! 

This week is being held between Monday 9th to Sunday 15th May 2016.

Deaf Aotearoa has produced a webseries of seven, one-minute videos to celebrate NZSL Week 2016. The series, “My Life in Sign”, features ‘Sign Boy’, played by Destyn, the face of NZSL Week. Sign Boy shows the advantages of communicating in New Zealand Sign Language when verbal communication is problematic. Sign Boy is accompanied by his trusty, bumbling sidekick, ‘Just Learning to Sign Man’.

We’re releasing a new episode at 7.30 each morning during NZSL Week 2016 (May 9-15), so make sure you check back here each day!
