Auslan

Australian Sign Language Alphabet
Fingerspelling is an important part of Auslan (Australian Sign Language)

It doesn't take long to learn and you can begin fingerspelling as soon as you understand the hand shapes of the alphabet.

Right-handed people fingerspell with the right hand and left-handed people fingerspell with the left hand. People who communicate in Auslan use fingerspelling in about 10% or their language.

Hints for fingerspelling:

  • The hand is raised in a comfortable position by bending the elbow.
  • The arm does not move when fingerspelling.
  • Shapes for the letters should be clearly formed.
  • Pause slightly between words.
  • Learn how to fingerspell at one of our Auslan classes.

Print out our Fingerspelling Chart to help you learn the Auslan alphabet: Auslan Alphabet PDF .
