New Zealand Sign Language

New Zealand Sign Language NZSL is one of the official languages of New Zealand. It is a rich language used in the Deaf community and also increasingly within the hearing community.

We want to promote the learning of NZSL by sharing websites that you can use to expand your knowledge of NZSL.

The "kōrero Mai - Speak to Me" series incorporates NZSL to acknowledge it's place as one of New Zealand's official lanuages.
