Australian Sign Language. I’ve just started studying it at CIT (Canberra Institute of Technology). It’s a six year course, six hours per week, to receive a diploma and be a qualified Auslan interpreter. I’ve been interpreting for two deaf men in our church for four years before we moved last year, and am doing it again now we’re back. Just think, if I’d started the course back when I first started signing then I’d be nearly finished!
The church has said that they will pay my fees for the course, which is great! Not so much for the money but more for the recognition that I’m doing this for them. I’m a happy girl! 🙂
