Learn the English Language
Northern Arizona University’s Program in Intensive English (PIE) helps non-native English speakers improve their academic language skills while living in the US.
If you're an international student, PIE will help you:
- develop academic skills and strategies
- become an active classroom participant
- learn about American culture
- make friends with other NAU students
If you're a teacher or researcher, PIE can connect you to educational and observational opportunities that further the understanding of applied linguistics.
PIE helps three types of students:
students who don’t meet NAU
English language requirements
students who are looking for language experience
- Groups of students who want a short-term immersion experience
Our instructional staff consists of two groups:
instructors with MA degrees in the field of TESL
Graduate Teaching Assistants
students with MA-TESL degrees
If you are interested in exploring second language teaching
and learning, we have plenty of opportunities for you within PIE.
