The course provides excellent Bible-based training for those who wish serve in a cross-cultural context anywhere in the world, particularly among people groups who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. The 3rd year Applied Linguistics course is only available to those who have completed the Cross-Cultural Communications Course and have demonstrated linguistic aptitude.
