Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why is FriendSpeak effective?

    FriendSpeak offers people something they want - English, while providing them something they need – friendship and faith. The FriendSpeak advantage is that we use the Word of God to help people practice their English conversation skills. By doing this, we can move back and forth between discussions about language and discussions about faith.

  2. Is FriendSpeak an ESL (English-as-a-Second-Language) Program?

    FriendSpeak is designed for those who already speak some English, but want to practice conversation with an American friend. Although your reader’s language skills will improve dramatically, FriendSpeak is not an ESL curriculum.

  3. Will FriendSpeak work in our community?

    FriendSpeak has proven effective in both urban and rural communities that have at least a small pocket of ethnic residents or foreign workers nearby.

  4. Do our members need to speak another language to participate?

    Not at all! FriendSpeak sessions are conducted entirely in English with international people who can at least struggle through a basic conversation.

  5. What kinds of organizations besides churches can use FriendSpeak?

    Campus ministries, prison ministries, after-school programs, literacy groups, business as missions, homeless shelters, tutoring programs, and more.

  6. What kind of results can we expect from FriendSpeak?

    We believe the work of Christians is to plant seeds of faith in the hearts of unbelievers, and that God gives the growth (1 Corinthians 3:6-9). We encourage churches to measure success according to their opportunity to sow seeds.
