Taste of Translation and Linguistics (TOTAL) is a five-day course designed to help you determine if Bible translation, linguistics, and cross-cultural ministry are right for you.
The course includes introductory classes on Phonetics, Phonology, Grammar, Cultural Learning, Semantics, and sessions on Language Survey, EthnoArts, Literacy, and Technology. You’ll be challenged by a role-play situation and enjoy multi-cultural dinners and worship times together. And you’ll have opportunities to meet missionaries who have “been there” in Bible translation and support roles! Community living is available for you to have Bible studies, prayer time, and other chances to get to know fellow students.
