Field-based training to help you learn the basics of any language
Start date: 2 July, 2018
End date: 30 September, 2018.
A successfully completed Discipleship Training School and School of Frontier Missions, or similar. The student must also be living in a cross cultural language “immersion” situation where they are surrounded with local language speakers.
This course gives opportunity for credit to be gained from language learning that takes place beyond the classroom- on the street, in the marketplace, through relationships, in a non-formal context.
You will have continued encouragement and coaching through weekly online meetings in how to learn the language of the people you are living with.
This course is designed for people who are already learning the language of the people they are living with in a cross-cultural missions context. The course provides framework to successfully gain initial competence in the target language and accreditation for your effort. The learning content will be delivered electronically- books, work together, online discussions, and classes.
Many people see missions and language learning as separate occupations. This course will train you to do language learning as missions: how to use language learning to evangelise, disciple and plant churches among your target people.
