Acquiring English Skills for a Changing World

At Portland English Language Academy—a private, independent school for young adults from all over the world—students learn how to communicate effectively in a constantly changing global landscape.

With course terms starting every month and programs in Intensive English, Semi-Intensive English, Academic English, and English-language test preparation, students have the flexibility to plan what will work for them. Their path might take them to a university in the US to pursue a degree program or back to their home country with improved English skills to use in their professional career.

Past participants have said that studying at Portland English Language Academy has helped them to be accepted into four-year universities. One program focused on that goal is the Academic English program, which focuses on university-level writing and grammar, academic vocabulary, and preparing to deliver presentations in English.

Outside the classroom, resources like conversation groups, tutoring and test preparation centers, student housing, and the opportunity to live with a host family give participants a well-rounded experience to help them achieve their dreams.
