    Does any one know of a source for "good" ESL material? I know I can find secular stuff. But, if some one has developed material from a Christian perspective so much the better.

    I have some stuff that I used in China this summer. Don't remember who put it together, though, but I can check into it for you.

    There used to be a system built around the book of Mark.

    It was SBC in origin, but I am not sure who the publisher was.

    lol.
    NAMB.net.

    I think it is through them, or maybe you could email a request to language consultants.

    The best program is from LEI- Literacy and Evangelism, International. They used to have a web page but can't find it right now, here is some other info...

    http://members.tripod.com/jrmeads_515/lei.htm

    Literacy & Evangelism International, John C Taylor, Dir, 1800 S Jackson Ave, Tulsa, OK 74107- 1897; Ph: 918-585-3826; Fax: 918-585-3224; ECFA, EFMA; Interdenom, Intermission; Teaches non-readers (half the world), Christian/non-Christian, to read Scripture; Teaches Christians to witness Christian faith/life; Literacy for church planting; Fnded 1967.

    They also offer a training program and it is excellent!

    (And no, I don't work for them, I just went through the training and have been very impressed with the results.)

    Thanks for all of your leads. I will be following up on them. What's happening is I teach the Russian Bible Class in our Adult Sunday School program. These folks have a bare working knowledge of English. However, because Russian is so highly inflected (think NT Greek) they are scared of making a mistake in English grammar. :eek: Easy to do in Russian :confused: , harder to do in English. So, I amj taking a few minutes at the start of class and clarify in their minds something simple like
    Now, it's on to adjectives and adverbs.
