Languague learning for Chinese missionaries

This series of teaching videos follow Mr. Li Wei, a Chinese missionary during his first term of overseas service. It describes his initial struggles in adapting to a new socio-linguistic context, and show how he overcame these hurdles with the help of his language helper, Mr. Ahmed, to become an effective communicator of the gospel. The videos model numerous methods and techniques based on Dr. Peter Pikkert’s LACE (Language Acquisition for Cross-cultural Effectiveness) program, a program designed to equip non-academic people to learn a language and enter into a foreign culture through a natural, almost child-like progression. The original English scripts for the series were written by Dr. Pikkert, who also directed the filming of this Chinese production.
