Underwater Signing Lesson: Help for the Hopeless

Author: Louise de Beuzeville


I'm tired of all of you being incapable of sensible talk underwater. So, I'll teach you some Auslan. Just a bit. Just enough to get you through diving. Also because it’s compulsory to learn these signs to dive with the club*



And now if you learn just these VERY EASY and kind of obvious 10 hand shapes you can at least give specific numbers to ten. Next month I’ll add a few movements and you can count to any number to 999.



So no more of this pointing and waving nonsense. I want a bit of specificity from my dive buddies. More creatures to come in the next month.


* President’s note: it’s not.

** Author’s note: it should be.
