The ESL Conference at Cornerstone University is held in response to the need for churches to be prepared to use the teaching of English as a Second Language (ESL) in ministry outreach to their community.
The conference features speakers who are able to help you implement ideas that will strengthen the effectiveness of your ESL program. The conference theme is Getting a Grip on Grammar. Whether you are a grammar novice or expert there will be something for everyone as we focus on new and exciting ways of teaching English grammar to our students. Please join us for a day of learning, fellowship and encouragement!
