Learning English for Academic Purposes

Welcome to the Learning English for Academic Purposes Department.


The Weber State University LEAP (Learning English for Academic Purposes) Department provides intensive English language courses for students in the process of acquiring English as a second language for academic use. It is the mission of the Department to prepare these students to function effectively in mainstream academic classes where English is the language of instruction. In doing so, we also seek to familiarize students with American culture and the academic atmosphere of studying in an American university. 


Students in our program may progress to regular academic courses in three semesters.
