Phases 1-6

"Don't learn the language! Rather, discover a new world, as it is known and shared by the people among whom you are living."-- Greg Thompson

ESL Connexus


The Six-Phase Program

Created by: Greg and Angela Thompson

The Six-Phase Program is just one way of realizing the Growing Participator Approach in practice. The phases are based on the nature of the supercharged participation activities, which keep changing as the growing participators' abilities change until they reach the stage where healthy growth continues without the aid of special activities-Phase 6-which goes on for the duration of their life among the particular host people. Although the phases are defined primarily in terms of the special growth activities, they are also characterized in terms of the development of life among host people in general.
