The International Program for College Students
August 7 - 26, 2017 (Summer)

CAPE offers semi-annual American language and culture programs for university students who wish to improve their English listening and speaking skills through "real life" situations requiring them to use both formal and informal English. Lectures, discussions and topical readings introduce participants to aspects of American culture, such as the American way of thinking, the educational system, and student life in the United States.

By experiencing cross-cultural living and participating in intercultural activities, participants have the opportunity to develop international friendships. Field trips to places of historical, cultural and educational interest enhance the students' learning and understanding of Hawai`i and the U.S.

The 2017 INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS will be held as stated below. Most program activities will take place on the campus of the University of Hawai`i at Manoa.

Housing accommodations will be provided at the East-West Center Lincoln Hall for program participants at a special rate. CAPE makes every effort to keep housing costs to a minumum for participants. Please see the program menu to the left for more information about housing for the Winter, Spring, and Summer programs.
