Invaluable for staff - to be able to know Auslan fingerspelling so they can converse with any Deaf students or parents in their school, to be able to ask questions, to be able to understand their replies, and even to use fingerspelling to ask what certain Auslan signs are and increase their knowledge of Auslan signs.

Invaluable for students - to become proficient at reading back an Auslan user's fingerspelling so that they are able to include Deaf peers in their every day activities, to be able to converse with them, involve them, and learn from each other as equal partners. Student's English reading skills will also benefit as they are more attentive to the spelling of each words. Playing the game at home will help will also increase their skills to make learning Auslan relaxing and enjoyable and make it easier to learn at school, boosting their confidence in Auslan.

Invaluable for parents - an opportunity to be involved in their child's learning at school and to have fun learning Auslan as a second language together with their child. To be able to use Auslan fingerspelling skills to converse with Deaf people in the community.


HOW TO PLAY?

There are 10 stages of increasing difficulty, with 24 levels in each stage.

Each stage has a secret word at the end which you use to enter in the next stage to continue the game.

The speed of the fingerspelling in the beginning stage is slow, showing only letters. In each stage, you will notice the speed of the fingerspelling becoming faster and faster, using whole words and phrases.

The final stage, the "Challenger" stage  is a bit faster than the average fingerspelling speed used by Deaf people. If you are able to pass this final stage, then you should have gained the skills to be able to comfortably read back and understand a Deaf Person's fingerspelling! This is an invaluable asset, because you'll be able to converse with them even if you do not know any Auslan signs yet!
