Dialektos"...how is it that each of us hears them in his own native dialekto?" - Acts 2:8
With the Dialektos program, the Department of Language and Literature offer students the opportunity to learn less-commonly-taught languages through directed independent language acquisition. The department has chosen Acts 2:8 as the inspiration for the name "Dialektos," because we see this program as a means of furthering ACU’s mission and 21st Century Vision. That is, Dialektos is an innovative language program that equips students to think critically, globally and missionally, and prepares students for leadership and service throughout the world.
Through Dialektos, we can help you to learn virtually any language in the world. Whether to accomplish professional goals (international business, foreign relation, etc.), satisfy personal needs (travel, family, etc.), or to serve in missions and in philanthropic ministries (medical missions, preaching abroad, Peace Corps, etc.) we are here to help you learn any language required for you to fulfill your calling.
Languages currently offered through Dialektos:
If you are interested in studying a language other than these, we want to know! Please complete our brief Language Survey to tell us which language you would like to study. If there is enough demand, we will try to offer your requested language in the future.
Since the Dialektos program requires students who are highly self-motivated and task-oriented, students must first apply to the program and interview with the department before registering for Dialektos courses. Contact Dr. Harland Rall for application information.
