The applicants are are grouped in teams consisting of two or more speakers of different languages, in which they have to meet and practice each other’s languages for a minimum of 3 hours per week.
Out of total response of 329 applicants, only 78 were accepted in to the program. During the course of the autumn semester, only 59 out of 78 applicants have been active and progressed to the next session of LEP in the Spring semester. Towards the end of Spring semester and end of LEP, only 34 students were eligible to earn the LEP certificate.
