The IECP is thrilled to welcome its new students for the 2019 summer semester! The new cohort represents five different countries, including China, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and –nd IECP first–Burundi!
As always, the summer semester is a unique experience due to the extra-intensive nature of the schedule. Students are in class between 24 and 30 hours a week, ensuring that they experience the full curriculum the IECP has to offer in five fewer weeks than the fall and spring terms. It’s a busy time, but we are sure our new and returning students are up for the challenge!

The IECP is also pleased to welcome new instructor Yuge Duan. Yuge recently completed her MA in TESL in the department of Applied Linguistics and has been a familiar face in the IECP Tutoring Center (ITC) for several semesters. In addition, she has experience teaching with Mid-State Literacy in State College. Welcome, Yuge!
