English as a Second Language (ESL)

PDI supports individuals, organizations, and professional groups with courses and programs covering a wide range of subjects, including English language studies.  

The English language is universally spoken and is the language of business, science, the internet, and entertainment. English is a primary qualifier whether you are applying for a job or you are seeking admission into a reputable college, university or institution. English language skills expand employment opportunities not only in Iraq but internationally. Companies and international organizations welcome candidates who have good English language skills.

Whether you are preparing for the TOEFL exam or simply want to enhance your English language capabilities, PDI will provide comprehensive exposure to the four important elements of English Language instruction: writing and grammar, reading, speaking, and listening.
