The Academic English Pre-Matriculation Program (AEPP) is a rigorous and intensive, yet tremendously rewarding course designed to build proficiency in North American English with a specific focus on Chicago. It is for incoming international students for whom English is an additional (or second) language and who have not previously lived or studied in the United States.
At the completion of this year's program, AEPP students created a book titled Global Perspectives of Chicago, which includes writings from each participant.
The OIA would like to extend its thanks and congratulations to all AEPP students for their hard work and wonderful book, which provides readers with a one-of-a-kind look into international students' perspective of Chicago.
