The English Language and Cultural Opportunities (ELCO) programme equips people interested in Christian mission with effective English language communication skills. They have a range of English classes, mission training sessions and opportunities to experience British cultural diversity. ELCO is aimed at those people who sense a call from God to engage in missions. On successful completion of the programme you will be able to communicate in English for everyday life, on an international English speaking mission team and tell other people the good news about Jesus.
You will be part of a group of English students from around the world, learning about English and mission for about 20 hours over 5 days a week. Lessons are taught at Pre-Intermediate and Intermediate levels by well qualified English language teachers. Small class sizes allow lots of personal help from teachers. Other sessions are taught by people experienced in mission and ministry. Our teachers will help you improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, also developing your grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. When you finish the programme you will be much more confident and capable of communicating in English. You will have many opportunities to talk in English to local people and experience community activities in daily life and as you attend local churches.
