Suggested text to start the first telephone contact with a person having applied to study Bible online lessons
— "It is Written" is one of the most interesting (popular, thorough, structured) study courses in our “Bible School”. The lessons of this course consist of questions and links to answers that you can read in the Bible. That is, you will need to read the answer to the question from the Bible and fill the lesson form. At the end of each lesson you will be able to write and send me questions that you have. I will give you my written responce or we can discuss your questions over the phone.

— Good afternoon!
My name is Serhiy, I am a Bible Teacher of the Ukrainian "Bible School".
You have applied for the Bible study course via Facebook. Can I ask you a few short questions and give you some brief information about our Bible lessons (it will take no more then3 minutes)? (The respondent usually agrees).
First of all, how do you assess your knowledge of the Bible?
Not familiar with the Bible
Slightly familiar with the Bible
Well acquainted with the Bible
(Based on the answer you can decide what course to offer)
Would it be convenient for you to submit 1or 2 lessons a week for checking?
And one more question, will it be convenient for you to receive lessons on Viber (Telegram)? If not, tell me, what messengers do you prefer (Telegram, WhatsApp, Messenger) ?.
And just to be clear, your Viber (Telegram ...) account is linked to the phone number I am talking to you now, is that right?
Example of a lesson offer ("It is Written"):
The teacher must get the student’s phone number that is linked to the application (Viber, Telegram, WhatsApp, Messenger), through which the student wants to receive the Bible lessons.
