- Easy English Bible – The EasyEnglish version of the Bible and some of the commentaries use a vocabulary of just 1,200 words and are for those who have learned English as a second language. For those who have a greater knowledge of English there is another level using 2,800 words. Both levels follow simple forms of grammar which help to express complex ideas in simpler words and sentences. The rules followed include the use of one topic per paragraph, no passive verbs, split infinitives, idioms, rhetorical questions, or, ambiguous pronouns. Working from their homes, the team of volunteers involved comprise writers, translators, linguistic and theological checkers, and editors. Started 20 years ago, the EasyEnglish project is part of MissionAssist (formerly Wycliffe Associates UK) which offers a range of services at no cost to overseas mission workers.
- EFL Workbooks – These workbooks are designed for learners of English who need to improve their reading comprehension in order to perform effectively in Bible colleges and seminaries that require extensive reading in English. The intention is not to teach English, but to supplement classroom instruction with biblically contextualized passages and exercises.
