English Education

Language reveals the history, culture, and heart of its people. Studying one's language through its literature opens the doors to their joys, sorrows, and needs. Developing one's ability to communicate effectively opens doors to wonderful vocations and ministries. Training others to identify and understand good literature, to exchange ideas, and to improve their own writing skills are the motivation for the person who desires to teach this discipline.
