Acquire has been a useful training and I’m excited to start putting it all into practice in our host country!  I feel that I’m much more prepared to go learn not only a language, but a culture, in which the people desperately need Jesus.

This two-week intensive training equips cross-cultural workers with current strategies and tools in language  acquisition so they can be more successful in language acquisition overseas. 

Participants sharpen their ability to hear phonetic sounds of other languages and gain speech flexibility so they can pronounce the new phonetic sounds correctly.  Instructors challenge, encourage and inspire students to be the best  language learners they can possibly be.

Through ACQUIRE, we not only give students a new tool, but as one participant said, “I walked away with a whole new toolbox!”

This is a top notch program that has completely changed how I will approach learning a new language.  I walked away gaining so much more than I thought I would.  If I had to take it again…I WOULD!

—Acquire Participant

I learned the techniques to learn a language but I also walked away with an actual game plan for how to do it once we land.
