In this three-week module, learners will get an introduction to concepts, principles and skills that will prepare them to learn a second language and culture for ministry. The first week is an exploration of their own culture and language, during which we also introduce some basic features of language and culture and ways in which languages and cultures differ. The last two weeks include practical, hands-on practice with phonetics, language and culture learning techniques and activities, applied to beginning to learn a new language. Learners will try out the new techniques by working with speakers of another language. We will also introduce principles of second language acquisition and there will also be practice in planning lessons, self-evaluation, and ongoing language and culture learning, with an emphasis on developing cross-cultural communicative competence.
