Hey there… Let’s talk about Short-Term Missions.
Today I’d like to address the question of Language and STM:
- Do you already speak the language of your destination-country?
- Do you intend to learn it?
- Do you need to learn it.
The answer to that last question is determined by a number of factors, four of which I’ll discuss in today’s podcast episode. Briefly, I’ll look at the following:
4 Factors that drive language requirements
- Missionary or Field Requirements
- Type of Involvement
- The length of your STM service
- Where you’re at in the STM process
What about fluency?
What if you have knowledge of the language, but you’re not totally fluent… is fluency a game-changer?
I’m trying a new delivery mechanism for content in today’s post. Anchor is a free app that allows you to record audio clips, string them together and essentially make a short podcast episode.
You don’t have to have the app to listen however as the link will open in a browser window.
