English Proficiency Program (EPP)
The English Proficiency Program (EPP), CPC's largest and most popular program, is for full
time students who have an F-1 student visa and who study for twenty hours per week.
It is comprised of six different levels (i.e., Beginner through Advanced) and focuses on
improving students' communicative fluency in order to become confident English speakers.
As such, EPP courses focus on grammar, reading, writing, listening and speaking while
emphasizing the importance of practical English use.
It takes twenty-four weeks to complete each level. The total time it takes to complete the EPP program is 2,880 hours.
