Daily Dose Learning Systems supports faith-based organizations that serve their communities by teaching English to immigrants and refugees.
Daily Dose is a warm and sensitive way of
helping people feel comfortable learning conversational English. It is based on
love, personal attention, and human interaction.
Unlike traditional ESL / ELL programs,
Daily Dose has no grammar books, homework assignments, or boring lectures.
Participants learn in small interactive groups called "Huddles," where they receive a healthy dose of love,
support, and encouragement.
What are Language Huddles?
A Huddle is a small group of people (6-10)
standing in a circle, interacting, having fun, and learning together with the help of a
Huddle groups meet 2-3 times a week, for
20-30 minutes at a time, to practice common words and phrases they encounter in
everyday life. The most dynamic Huddles are made up of half members and half
nonmembers (friends of other faiths).
What is the Role of the Facilitator?
At the heart of the program is a key
individual known as a "Facilitator." This is a warm and caring individual who
dedicates 2 to 3 hours a week facilitating Huddles and developing close
relationships with his or her learners. Facilitators are typically
native-English speakers who are set apart as Ward Missionaries by their own
How is the Program Organized?
The Daily Dose English Program is organized into four
12-week sessions (Levels 1-4) for a total of 48 weeks. Since the program is designed to improve pronunciation and conversation, all students typically begin at Level 1.
