The English Language School (ELS) course will help you learn and improve your English language skills with an emphasis on conversational English. You will learn in a Christian mission–focused environment and be equipped in language for future training and ministry. The ELS is intended to give confidence and fluency to students who want to make a difference in society wherever they serve or work.
Focus: Our ELS is focused on Christians in professional service, leaders, young leaders, and those interested in cross-cultural missions.
