Western Illinois University's traditional, residential four-year campus is located in Macomb, Illinois. Our non-residential, metropolitan campus is located in the Quad Cities/Moline, Illinois.

Established in 1977, Western's English As A Second Language Institute (WESL) Institute provides international students the opportunity to improve their English skills through a 20-hour-per-week intensive ESL program.
Courses are offered during the Fall and Spring semesters (16 weeks each) and the Summer semester (10 weeks) at three levels: Foundation (Basic); Intermediate; and University Preparation (advanced).
All instructors hold Masters degrees and have received special training in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL). Upon successful completion of the WESL program, students who meet all other admission requirements are admitted as regular degree-seeking students at WIU.
These students are assisted in their transition to the University with special advising and registration sessions. Besides providing services to students seeking a degree at WIU, WESL also serves individuals in the west-central Illinois region who want to improve their English skills for professional and/or personal development.
