On Thursday Mike administered an English exam to eight students at our IBCP seminary. This concluded a three-month long English class Mike has been teaching. The students of the course were both our seminary students and members of the community. The English course served two purposes for the seminary: 1) prepare the seminary students for this mandatory biblical English exam, and, 2) serve as an outreach to the surrounding community.
The exam was a one-hour reading comprehension test. The students were required to read 1 1/2 pages in English and then respond to 10 questions (in Spanish) about what they had just read.
The four weekly English classes averaged 10 students, but had as many 30 in attendance. Beginning in February Mike will start teaching the class again and administer the exam again in May.
