Empowering Language and Culture Learners

  • Are you learning a new language?

  • Moving overseas for work or ministry?

  • Involved in cross-cultural ministry in your community?

ICCT has a variety of training courses and coaching programs that can empower you!

We offer 4 different language learning courses- also known as second language acquisition courses, a cross-cultural communication course, a year-long language coaching program called "Just-in-Time SLA", and group language coaching. All of our courses and programs are online and individualized to your learning context. Each course and program includes one-on-one attention with instructors and time spent learning and working with your target host language. 

For pre-field Christian workers
For complete pre-field training, we recommend you take an SLA course (adding on a coaching program) plus the Cross-Cultural Living and Ministry course. 

For current Christian workers 
We recommend a personal consultation with the ICCT Director to discuss which course options (second language acquisition and/or cross-cultural communication) would best fit your situation.
