English Immersion Program

English Immersion Program

Our goal is to train global missionaries who have committed to serve with Operation Mobilization, especially on their ship ministry. We want to bring knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world.

Your goal: The English Immersion Program is designed to help applicants reach the level of English language ability required to serve onboard. People wanting to improve their English for other ministry service are welcome. The program is tailored to help each participant achieve English fluency. 

Our Curriculum:
The program provides English lessons in a small group setting along with one on one sessions. The 12 week (90 day) program teaches English (NOT grammar lessons!) in the context of skills in some of these areas:

1:1 Conversation Starters

How to continue in Conversation

Public Speaking

Leadership & Team Building

Team Communication

Active Listening 

Presentation Skills

Story Telling

Field Trips


Our Volunteer Teaching Team:  We have a team of 15 qualified/professional teachers that volunteer their time to make our candidates a success. We also have several interns who are learning how to teach in this unique way.

Cost: The Actual cost of the program is $1000-1200/ month USD. This covers the cost of group housing, educational materials & utilities, transportation to/from airports and field trips, and a stipend for meals for each month.  Our teachers are volunteers and/or raise their own support. The Schraven's need to raise $1200/month of their own support in order to cover their extra costs in teaching, travel, materials and supplies. You may donate this this site for those expenses. The mission participants will raise their own support and work through their home mission office. 

Scholarships: Scholarships to pay some of the tuition may be available through your home Operational Mobilization mission office.
