Teaching English in Church

William Bradridge & Louisa Walsh

This is well researched, well thought through, accessible to those on many levels who want to reach out to the international community around them.

It caters for beginner teachers as well as beginner learners and takes you step by step along the journey of church based English language classes.

It gives a clear method to get things started without taking the heart out of why you would want to reach out by being overly prescriptive. It's perfect for those who want to start something but don't know where to start.

There is an extensive resource section to go to for ideas, guidance, structure of lessons, how to present the gospel in an appropriate way and how to understand other cultures and faiths.

It would certainly be a great resource to enable church communities to get things started immediately as all the research has been collated for them.
