Chris Engelsma

E-Professor of Core English

My name is Chris Engelsma. I created the English course here at CLI. My experience with languages goes back nearly fifteen years. I graduated from Cornerstone Univ. in Grand Rapids, MI with a bachelor’s degree in ancient languages. I then when on to Calvin Seminary where I graduated with an MTS degree. After seminary, I taught History, Grammar, and Literature at a junior high school. It primarily here that I developed a lasting passion for the teaching of language and grammar. I carried this passion with me to Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary where I created online courses in Hebrew, Greek, and English. Learning a language is so foundational to everything you study. I look forward to assisting students everywhere in mastering the English language.
