4 sessions — 3 virtual & 1 live at 1324 The Plaza, Charlotte, N.C.

English as a second language (ESL) classes are a great way to meet a need among internationals in our communities while providing a foundation for friendship and gospel proclamation. This training is for individuals who want to be equipped to teach ESL to impact lostness in their community.

Materials needed

The training will cover material from the TELL Manual, an ESL manual provided by the North American Mission Board. The manual can be downloaded for free as a PDF here. To order a physical copy through FedEx, please visit here. Note: Please order the version titled, “2019 – The Good News” which is offered as either a binder or coil-bound booklet. It is normally cheaper to purchase through FedEx than self-printing.

  • I’m not able to attend all four sessions, but am interested in attending what I can. Is that okay? 
    To receive a certificate of completion, attendees are expected to attend all four sessions. However, you’re welcome to attend the sessions that you’re able. Missed sessions can be made up in future trainings if a certificate is desired or needed.

  • Will the in-person training follow COVID-19 protocols? 
    Yes, we will monitor the situation and be sure to follow guidelines for face coverings, social distancing and other precautions. Thankfully the building size will accommodate such needs.
