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 venue is on the beautiful campus of Lancaster Bible College just north of the city. Please arrive by 6 p.m. on Sunday night. We will end the course at 1 p.m. on Friday right after lunch is served. If you plan to fly or use other public transportation, please do not make any reservations until you contact the event coordinator to discuss possible options.
We hope you can join us for this challenging, exciting, and rewarding experience!
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.
