MILL = Maximum Impact Language Learning

Many cross-cultural workers are concerned about having to learn a new language on the field. But seeing language as fundamentally a social activity, rather than an academic activity, means that language learning is all about relationships. Building relationships through language learning, and developing confidence and skills in language learning through relationships can reduce the stress of living and working in a cross-cultural environment.
Maximum Impact Language Learning (MILL) runs pre-departure training courses and workshops to help people develop skills, methods, techniques and attitudes necessary to learn another language. They can also provide ongoing support for individuals or small groups throughout the various stages of the language learning process.
The impact of language learning on issues such as identity, transition, sense of self, ability to function, teamwork, humility, stress, etc. place it squarely in the domain of member care. MILL is keen to work alongside member care personnel to share information and develop a deeper understanding of the process of language learning and the issues involved, with a goal of developing better ways of supporting and encouraging cross-cultural workers through this crucial process.
