TESOL

Learning and teaching English: Keys to fulfilling the Great Commission.

Summer 2022 TESOL
Course Dates: July 5 - August 6

 

English has become the universal language.
It has given the opportunity to be a major influence for the gospel. Our five-week intensive TESOL course will emphasize the practical methods and techniques for teaching the four basic language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. 

We focus on creative teaching methods to clearly communicate the grammar, pronunciation, and communicative skills our students need. You will also receive practice opportunities during an observation/teaching practicum.

 

Sense of Community
It is amazing how God guides our lives as individuals and brings people together from very different places to gain common training to then use in a variety of different ways. Each one of the students when asked what they enjoyed most about the course described the sense of community and open supportive environment that really allowed them to grow.

 

Teaching English is a Tool for Fulfilling The Great Commission

A few years after taking the TESOL course at our campus, Carol and her husband left for Papua New Guinea and are still serving their full time with Wycliff. One went on the live and teach in Russia.

Several students used their new skills stateside. 

Three students traveled to Ukraine to teach, stayed to attend DTS, and then pioneered a new mission training school. All went on to help change lives there and in other parts of the world!  

At the conclusion of the course, often students express their joy at completing these intense five weeks and how this training will help them in the future. One such student commented,  “This course helped to ease much of the fear and uncertainty for me about teaching overseas. Although a huge learning experience, spending half of our class hours doing student teaching presentations gave me the tools and the hands-on experience I needed. I never could have gotten that from an online course. It is very exciting to see the new doors God is opening.”

 

God truly is working all over the world and we are so privileged to play a part.
