Our Second Language Acquisition (SLA) classes are going well. The SLA course work consists of lectures, phonics training (tuning our ears to hear, and our tongues to articulate, new sounds), and meeting with a native-Korean speaker as a language tutor. So, yes, we are learning a bit of Korean this week. Although no one in training will be working with Koreans on the field, it offers us all a sort of dry run – an opportunity to learn the principles and methods of SLA before we go overseas. It’s as near to the experience of working with a foreign language tutor as possible here in the States. Thanks again for your continued prayers.

Here are a few pictures from the last few weeks.

A long day of class, but great stuff.

Determined learners.

More good stuff.
