“Equipping the Church…”

Drawing upon 50 years of history, LEI’s training incorporates years of valuable experience from literacy and English language classes around the world. LEI equips the Church through a variety of literacy and English language training events.



The International Literacy Training Institute (ILTI) is a comprehensive five-week literacy training event held in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, every June and July. ILTI will train you in:

  • basic literacy
  • English literacy
  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • English as a Foreign Language (EFL)
  • primer construction
  • other topics for successful literacy and/or ESL ministries

ILTI is conducted in English only.




Regional Literacy Training Institutes (RLTIs) are condensed literacy training events conducted in various locations around the world at different times of the year. These trainings may offer a more cost-effective and convenient training option and are sometimes conducted in regional trade languages.

Local Training

LEI missionaries around the world are available to conduct local literacy or ESL training events in coordination with your church, mission or NGO upon request.

Digital Training

LEI offers a growing library of digital and online training materials. These digital resources are especially valuable to those who are unable to attend a training or have been trained but are looking to refresh or improve their knowledge.
