Many ministry wives have not had the opportunity to study or practice English before arriving at IGSL. For women whose English ability is not sufficient for them to benefit from PIM classes, they will join our one-year PIM English program, studying English on Monday mornings. (There are also supplemental English classes during the week.)
Like all PIM students, the women in the PIM English program will also meet with their ISGs on Monday afternoons. After one year of PIM English classes, most women then begin the Regular PIM Track, taking the first year classes during their second year at IGSL. If they are at IGSL a third year, they can then take the second year classes and receive the PIM certificate.
