Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

Once again Linda uses the Language Acquisition Made Practical curriculum to train new missionaries in this self-directed method of language learning. Get the correct pronunciation from a native language speaker on a recorder and listen to it over and over until you can mimic it back. Then go out into the community among local speakers and practice, practice, practice. Come back tomorrow and record a new phrase.

This method not only builds language ability but it builds relationships and culture learning, both of which are high priorities of ours and AIM.

The deSmidts from South Africa, the oldest couple in this course, already have served 32 years with AIM in other parts of Africa. He speaks 8 languages and she speaks 5. Isn’t that amazing. And now they are learning yet another local Ugandan language even though their ministry will be to AIM leadership in Central Region for leadership support and development.
