Those in cross-cultural service need English to communicate well within their organization, and beyond. Yet some from new sending countries have only minimal English and feel handicapped by this. They desire to improve, through conversational English and daily practice, but need a native speaker to come and work with them and their children. You would work directly with these partners on English language skills, with emphasis on speaking and listening, and vocabulary building; run conversational English groups, personal times with each adult, play learning for the children (songs, games, etc). It involves doing life in English each day together, sharing not just language but friendship and partnership in the work. A young person is needed who can embed within the team and help these workers (and their kids) practice and improve their English. Patience, creativity, people-awareness, sensitivity to other cultures, and a servant heart are all needed.
