Learn sign language with Visually Speaking

Visually Speaking course

Ever wanted to learn sign language? Erik Kiefer with Visually Speaking brings his course to Indian Land.

People should learn Sign Language because it’s an amazing, engaging language that has a rich, deep history & culture,” shared Kiefer. “Because this is a visual language with many different aspects, it’s a fun and interactive learning experience for individuals of any age.”

Keifer learned how to sign at a young age because both his grandmother and aunt were Deaf. “For years I was able to observe many exchanges between deaf individuals, and it was immediately apparent that there are many misconceptions that hearing individuals have about the language and culture,” said Kiefer.

This triggered his interest in teaching others. Kiefer developed his course alongside individuals from the deaf community with the goal of not just creating another sign language class.

“Because of the unique curriculum that several people in the Deaf community and I developed, this is not a hard language to learn,” said Kiefer. “My main goal was to create an individualized course that would align with anyone’s learning preferences and play to their strengths.”
