Hello! Muli bwanji! Bonjour! Mulishane!
"If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a foreigner to the speaker, and he is a foreigner to me" (1 Cor 14:11)
LANGUAGE TRAINING (English Language for Literature Students - ELLS)
As the work of FCE expanded to foreign nations, especially into Africa, it became increasingly obvious that many who wanted to enroll for FCE courses were unable to do so, as their command of the English Language (the medium of instruction) was not good enough. In March 2004 the first ELLS course was presented.
With a strong emphasis on the Word the course covers the four aspects for social and academic literacy:
Methods used include
Use of previous knowledge
Spelling and Dictation
Jeanvion Banza, presently a teacher at our CTC, was one of the first students from the DRC to do this training. His English has improved dramatically, so much so, that he could testify with confidence about being a Christ-centred teacher at the National Christian Teachers' Convention in Bloemfontein in 2010.
