Living Words Students Level 3a Lesson Plans
LIVING WORDS is a 3 level intensive Bible-based English language course designed to take students from their own starting level to a level where they can understand, think and communicate effectively in English. A further, unique aim of this course is to give educators a body of relevant English language learning material with a solid Christian foundation. Our mission was to produce a full set of English language learning materials for the teacher and student, using Bible characters and their lives to teach everyday vocabulary, as well as that commonly used to convey Christian ideas and spiritual principles in a relaxed and fun way. Our goal is to teach children and young adults not only to speak English, but by using the Bible as a base, bring them into a spiritual relationship - a saving knowledge of Jesus. The course of materials contained here develops the theme of God's character as expressed in his love, grace and infinite goodness, proceeding through Jesus' life, death and resurrection, and culminating in the experience of the Holy Spirit's power - enabling a fully satisfying personal relationship with God in the expectation of Jesus' imminent return. This engaging, in-depth course works particularly well in the communicative classroom actively teaching and learning English as a second language in an English-speaking environment, or as a foreign language course where access to native speakers is limited. In any setting, this curriculum can set the stage for active, engaged classroom learning.
