Come or go

Bringing it together
Bringing it together

Completely submersed in a village’s culture and language can be a great environment for learning a new language. But it can come at a cost. Sometimes the distractions of life inundate language learners and they spend more time with daily routines than working on the language. Bringing language speakers in from the village to a more accessible place can improve efficiency but it puts strain on the national language worker as they are away from their families and responsibilities. This new environment has distractions of its own for the villager. Which is best? Sometimes neither. Sometimes both. It demands great wisdom when planning and executing a language program. Pray for wisdom for these new starts.
