The Professional Development Institute (PDI) of the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS) is seeking ESL instructors for its English Language programs. PDI provides English language instruction to adult students. The majority of students are professionals enrolled in general ESL classes in the evenings. However, PDI also offers test preparation courses (TOEFL, IELTS), as well as classes specifically tailored to the needs of clients—i.e., conversational, medical, business English, English for Academic Purposes (EAP). In short, PDI functions as a specialized language institute rather than a university preparatory program.
