The International Center for Academic and Professional English at Lehigh University helps multilingual speakers of English improve their communication skills with flexible, student-focused program options that are grounded in evidence-based practice and connected to the resources of the larger university community.
Part of a robust academic advising structure, ICAPE is more than English as a Second Language (ESL). Our dedicated team of professional instructors offer non-credit and credit courses, workshops, tutoring and testing services to help multilingual speakers of English improve their writing and communication skills as well as their academic and social integration. ICAPE is located in Maginnes Hall 246.
