Event description

Description

TOTAL It Up! Extreme — North Carolina

Waxhaw, NC

Discover Bible translation at “TOTAL It Up! Extreme” (Taste of Translation and Linguistics), where intense learning meets interactive, outdoor fun!

During this five-day course, real-world translators introduce you to the ins and outs of Bible translation through fast-paced, stimulating presentations and fun class activities — all while living in the outdoors! Topics include grammar, phonetics and phonology, language and culture learning, translation and semantics, literacy and ethnomusicology, and sign-language translation.

This particular TOTAL It Up! course is extreme because you’ll be doing everything in the outdoors! You’ll live in a simulated village experience, sleep in a champa (a hut built 5 feet above the ground), sleep in a hammock, eat outdoors and attend the different sessions in an outdoor pavilion.

Come be inspired by the wealth of testimonies and videos that bridge the gap between academics and the real-world adventure of being a Bible translator. Plus, this outdoor-based experience will make this an exciting week you’ll never forget!
