St Andrew’s Hall, VIC

Missions Interlink Language Learning (MILL)

MILL is a pre-departure program designed to help people develop the skills, methods, techniques and attitudes necessary to learn another language.


What is MILL about?


Learning to communicate in another language is a vital part of cross-cultural ministry. Yet many people go to the field without adequate preparation for learning a new language. Being equipped with tools to help in the task of language learning can reduce some of the stress of living and working in a cross-cultural environment.

The course explores issues in language acquisition, phonetics and basic linguistic principles. The focus is practical, giving experience working with native speakers, and individual consultations relating to specific languages and ministry contexts.

Gain a fresh perspective on language learning, while acquiring skills, confidence, flexibility and a boost to beginning language learning.
