You can have a ministry teaching English!
The English in Action curriculum contains all that a lay teacher needs to begin a Bible-based English program.

English in Action provides:
- Step-by-step training in how to use the fun-filled Total Physical Response method. TPR is a language-acquisition method that emphasizes listening, body movement and giving of commands. "When the body moves, the brain remembers" is one of the themes of TPR.
- An exciting and practical format so students easily understand the gospel as they learn English.
- Detailed lesson plans for more than 75 hours of teaching.
- Practical steps for initiating an English ministry, in your church or community.

This book, with the 75 hours of lesson planning already done for you, and with the hand-outs that you can photocopy and give to your students, is not eligable for discount, but is well-worth the cost! Clear teaching ideas, problem-solving with your students, how to involve the shyest student in active learning - all these and more are included in this teacher's manual.

Key points:

• You do not need to speak the language of the students, in fact not being able to speak their language can be a plus as it obligates them to attempt to speak in English more frequently.

• You do not need to explain English grammar

• Any student from ages 12 to 70 who has first grade literacy level in their native tongue can use this program.

• While you can use all 75 hours of the program, it also allows flexibility. It can be shortened or lengthened with many optional items and activities that can be used or passed over at the teacher's discretion.

• TPR is not the only method used. A wide variety of methods, activities and excercises is included in the curriculum. TPR is used to lay a foundation of internalized vocabulary from which students expand their abilities.

The author, Wally Cirafesi has a master's in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL). He has served on staff with The Navigators for 3 decades and currently directs the TESOL program at Moody Bible Institute.

A "must-have" for church ESL programs
The English in Action course is a fabulous tool for evangelistic outreach. The progression of lessons from Adam and Eve through Jesus' life and ministry are especially great for students who are unfamiliar with the Bible. Yet it is more than just a Bible Study - students actively learn language skills from the text. The Total Physical Response method is a fun and effective way for students to understand and retain the information. The Teacher's Manual provides excellent explanations and tips for presenting each lesson.
