Meet Hannah: The director of a language school in Cambodia
Hannah*, a cross-cultural worker who directs a language school in Phnom Penh, has a passion for helping others learn Khmer. While Hannah was redesigning the language school’s curriculum, she took language coach trainings from ICCT, inspiring her to learn even more about second language acquisition. She eventually earned an M.A. in TESOL at Wheaton College and her language school continues to have a partnership with ICCT. We are honored that ICCT has the privilege to be a small part of what God is doing among the nations!
Meet Corrie: Language Learning Director for a large organization
Corrie* shares her organization's story with us:
"As a large organization with staff serving all around the globe, one of the biggest needs [our organization] has had over the past 30 years is second language acquisition training that is specifically tailored for cross-cultural Gospel workers...Over the years, we have had some staff succeed in language learning and even reach a high proficiency level, but most staff have struggled in language learning and many never reached a level that allowed them to do all of their ministry duties in the language. However, requiring our staff to take the Wheaton SLA course has been a game changer for our ministry! The Wheaton SLA course has given our staff not just the necessary vision that they can and should learn a second language to a high proficiency level, but it has also given them the practical tools, guidance and to make that dream a reality! As more and more of our new staff are being trained through the ICCT SLA program we are seeing measurable and noticeable results on the field.
ICCT not only provides training for language learners, but they also provide training to language coaches and consulting services to individuals and organizations. [Our organization] has used and benefited from each of these services! Our organization has been blessed in multiple ways by...ICCT, and we are immensely grateful for our association and partnership with ICCT."
