When offered, our workshops teach how to use Communicative Language Teaching approaches, with special attention given to the soon to be released materials of the Biblical Language Center: a newly reworked first-year online biblical Hebrew curriculum that will come with an integrated teacher’s manual.
The Biblical Language Center believes that speaking and thinking in a language is crucial for biblical language fluency. Second Language Acquisition studies have shown that speaking a language is a catalyst for truly internalizing a language. BLC Fluency Workshops work on skills necessary for efficiently applying Communicative Language Teaching methods to the classroom. Our workshops run “immersion” style with the entire day taking place in Koine Greek or Biblical Hebrew. Both full group sessions and small groups led by a team of facilitators provide maximum personal attention and practice.
