“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 literacy training event that 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.
