PIA has five core levels of Intensive English classes, plus English Basics. In each level, students attend classes in reading, writing, grammar and speaking/listening. English Basics classes are designed to be mixed-skills. Classes are held Monday through Thursday with a total of 20 hours of class per week. Within these classes, students improve their English and have a chance to study cultural topics, computer skills, and other points of special interest.
The Language Foundations program is a non-degree program intended to support non-native English speakers working toward the advanced English language proficiency required to be successful in undergraduate coursework at Marylhurst University. This complete program is four quarters in length. Each quarter, students take one language support course offered by Pacific International Academy (PIA) and three select Marylhurst undergraduate courses. The language support courses provide university success strategies and personal language development intended to prepare students for the linguistic and academic rigor of undergraduate coursework. Each quarter, the support course focuses on a different language-learning area: reading in fall, speaking and listening in winter, writing in spring, and grammar and vocabulary in summer.
