ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) is designed for people newer to English. Alpha creates a safe and trusting environment for people from different cultural backgrounds and communicates the good news about Jesus.
Alpha for ESOL is a slower-paced version of the course using dialogue in simplified English with culturally relevant stories and illustrative activities. This course does not use video talks, rather the speaker uses transcripts to present the talks live. Click here to download a sample of Alpha for ESOL resources.
The talks are divided into 10 – 15 minute segments and each segment is followed by a short time of open discussion. The course can be 10 weeks or 20 weeks long. Click here to download the Alpha for ESOL Talks Schedule.
