Course Descriptions and Registration Forms

SLA for Beginning Learners

A 15-session course for new language learners with almost no proficiency of the target language. 

SLA for Continuing Learners

A 15-session course for language learners with intermediate proficiency or higher in the target language. Participants can be new to the field or seasoned workers who want to get to the next proficiency level.

Introduction to Language Learning

A 15-session course for new language learners who will be on-field for less than 3 years and are learning language for everyday life, rather than for doing heart-to-heart communication for ministry.

Just-in-Time SLA Program

A program spanning one year for new language learners. The program lasts the duration of your first year on-field during language learning, beginning with an SLA course of your choice (SLA for Beginning Learners, SLA for Continuing Learners, or Introduction to Language Learning), then continues with individualized language coaching during your first year of language learning on-field, and finishes with another short online course at the end of your first year.
