Daily Dose English Program - LDS Edition

Daily Dose Learning Systems supports faith-based organizations that serve their communities by teaching English to immigrants and refugees. 

For example, since 2004, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been using the LDS Edition of our Life Skills program to reach out to those needing to learn English and develop basic Life Skills.

The Daily Dose English Program is approved by Church Correlation and the Starter Kit (see below) is available through Distribution Services.


About the LDS Edition

What is the Daily Dose English Program?

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 Facilitator.

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 bishop.

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.






My Testimony of the Daily Dose English Program

By Elder Jorge S. Campozano - Utah Provo Mission

"...Brothers and Sisters, this simple but very effective program has been developed under inspiration to become a wonderful gathering tool for Zion. We have seen its success in Utah and desire to share it with the entire Church and its missionary efforts throughout this country and throughout the world..."

Magazine Article: Daily Doses That Change Lives 

La Estrella Magazine, February 2011

"...one of the great benefits of Daily Dose is that it teaches people to handle everyday life situations in the new language.  But it also plants the seed of the gospel in the hearts of those who participate."
