EnglishConnect for Missionaries helps missionaries learn English to increase educational and employment opportunities as they prepare to lead and support families when they return home.
If you do not speak English, you should study it as a missionary. This will bless you during your mission and throughout your life. Learning English will enable you to help build the Lord’s kingdom in additional ways and will be a blessing for you and your family.

ENGLISHCONNECT FOR MISSIONARIES SERVES FOUR ENGLISH LEVELS
UNIQUE BENEFITS OF ENGLISHCONNECT FOR MISSIONARIES
“EnglishConnect helped me be ready for BYU-Pathway. BYU-Pathway will help me find a better job. I want to be an accountant. BYU-Pathway will help me do that.” - Sister Suwanan Yamma, Thailand
“The change that comes [from conversion] is a desire to be someone even better, to reach for more light, and to give greater service to others. Those desires always lead to a hunger for education, to learn what is true, what is useful, and what is beautiful” - President Henry B. Eyring,
- Learning English can significantly increase a person’s opportunities for employment, education, and service. In countries where English is not the native language, individuals who speak English can earn 30-50% higher salaries.
- In English-speaking countries, immigrants and refugees who learn English are better able to find employment, access healthcare, take advantage of education opportunities, and integrate with the community.
“It’s really helped me after my mission. Using my English helped me get a job as a nurse.” - Sister Gaie, Singapore Mission
Missionaries who are using EnglishConnect to learn English on their mission may participate in these groups as an extension of their personal and companion practice.
