Language, Culture & Church Program (ESL)

Inaugurated in 1998, the Language, Culture & Church program (LCC) provides intensive English-language studies for those whose first language is not English, as well as support in adapting to North American culture and the Church in the United States.. The LCC program provides intensive instruction in English composition, grammar, speaking, and comprehension to prepare students for further academic studies in the United States. On average, students spend 17 to 19 contact hours of classroom instruction per week and 3 to 4 hours of language lab training per week for a total of 20 to 23 hours of language training per week.

The student completes the program when he successfully passes the official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) administered by Educational Testing Services. At Conception Seminary College a 70 on the electronic TOEFL is the minimal passing grade.

Character formation, cultural expression, and community living are discussed in peer groups and supported by the character-formation staff. Spiritual formation takes into account the faith background and practices of each student. The full integration of LCC students into the life of the seminary college allows all seminarians to be enriched by diverse cultural forms and challenges for future ministry.
