RIDBC Auslan Tutor: Key Signs
Learn how to communicate 150 common Auslan signs, like “please,” “thanks,” and “how are you?” Each sign is clearly presented, with a photo of the handshape used to form the sign and a video clip demonstrating how the sign is produced.

The app also includes the Auslan alphabet - so you can learn how to fingerspell and numbers 0-10.

The RIDBC Auslan Tutor: Key Signs was developed by staff at RIDBC, in consultation with expert Auslan users.

The video instructions are great

This App is a great free resource with its video instructions for each sign and alphabetical listing of key terms. It could be improved significantly by enabling users to ‘favourite’ signs for learning and quickly referencing them, and by adding a ‘test your knowledge’ section with multiple choice options.

Love it but...

If the family section, I think ‘son’ and ‘daughter’ would be useful. There is mum, dad, brother and sister but not the relationship between the adult to child

Good start

Fantastic starting ap but I can't afford full priced one for something on my phone. I also can't access the first and last options like others have said, the scroll doesn't let me :( so I can't even read about the company. Love the videos, very helpful. I just learnt some auslan today off a fluent signer and I can't wait to go back and show her what I've learnt!
