That’s the mes­sage Deaf Aotearoa is send­ing dur­ing New Zealand Sign Lan­guage Week, which runs un­til Sun­day.

This year marks the sev­enth time Deaf Aotearoa has run the week pro­mot­ing sign lan­guage as an of­fi­cial lan­guage of New Zealand and rais­ing aware­ness about the deaf com­mu­nity.

To cel­e­brate it is call­ing on all New Zealan­ders to learn 25 signs through an on­line taster class.

Visit nzslweek.org.nz this week to watch in­ter- ac­tive clips and learn how to sign ev­ery­day words and phrases.

Plus, ev­ery­one who takes part in the on­line taster class can en­ter a quiz on the web­site and be in to win great prizes.

Deaf Aotearoa also has a range of re­sources to pro­mote the week and its on­line shop shop.deaf. org.nz sells T-shirts, tool kits, book­lets and other re­sources.

Deaf Aotearoa is the national ser­vice provider for Deaf peo­ple in New Zealand.
