There are a number of universities in town, for example the internationally top-ranked University of Wisconsin Madison. Students can choose to stay with homestay families or in our Dormitory.

Many of our staff and teachers have been with us at WESLI for more than 15 years and most of our administrative staff members also teach or have done so in the past. That way students can be sure to always have a helping hand from someone with a passion for helping students and the experience to do so.

WESLI has partnered with the University of Wisconsin College System to offer three- credit college classes at WESLI. This is a great opportunity for WESLI students to earn college credit while still studying at WESLI. These credits can be transferred to UW schools and count towards a student’s general education requirements, no matter what major they choose.

Invaluable experience

WESLI is an amazing program for both the teacher training and the English language learners. It is a very open and welcoming community that pays personal attention to everyone's individual needs and goals. Thanks to the teacher training program, I developed a much more professional CV along with an organized portfolio, while also gaining real experience teaching to an actual class of learners! Not only that, but I was employed in less than a month after the program thanks to the job search portion! IF YOU WANT TO BE SUCCESSFULLY TEFL CERTIFIED, look no further than WESLI!!

Living the Dream

Hello! My name is Ben Li. I am a WTTP (WESLI Teacher Training Program) alumnus and am currently living the dream in Taipei, Taiwan. That’s not to say I haven’t experienced my fair share of culture shock, but I have a meaningful and fulfilling job teaching English to children that leaves me with enough mental energy, time and money to immerse myself in Taiwanese culture. I am having a wonderful time, and it is thanks--in no small part--to my time at WESLI. Not only were WESLI teachers instrumental in me getting a job, but even more importantly, they comprehensively prepared me to be successful in it. Here’s a quick flyby of what the WTTP did for me and what it might do for you!

Almost every job posting that I looked at either required or preferred a TEFL certificate--the certification is a big deal. Most places also required a demo video with your application, and unless you’re already a teacher, I doubt you’ll have a better opportunity to make a demo video than during the WTTP practicum. Finally, during and even well after the program, WESLI teachers were more than happy to offer professional support such as resume feedback, writing recommendation letters and even scrutinizing employment contracts.

The WTTP is made up of two parts: core courses (foundations, skills and grammar review) and practicum (teaching, tutoring and observations). Having the opportunity to teach 10 hours of a real ESL class as well as observe both veterans and peers in action provided indispensable experience--please don’t get your TEFL online! I can’t imagine the nightmare my first few weeks as a teacher would have been without 30 hours of practicum under my belt--not to mention how little my students would have learned. In addition, the core courses really opened my eyes to just how much being a native English speaker does not automatically translate into being an effective foreign language teacher. Just to name a few examples, I had no idea that there were 12 different verb tenses in the English language much less how to teach any of them; I had never heard of the word collocations, but I now visit an online collocation dictionary nearly every day; and maybe the most important lesson was that my students would actually learn more if I’m talking less and they’re practicing English more--“less is more.”

In conclusion, if it isn’t clear from what I’ve written above...I HIGHLY recommend going through the WTTP! Thank you WESLI teachers!

Super helpful!

This program not only met all of my ESL training goals, it also added greatly to my professional skills. The practicum was also super helpful in applying what I'd just learned in class and getting my first teaching experience to add to my resume. The staff and students are super nice, too!

It has no methodology for adults - bad Homestay

I cannot recommend WESLI, I feel that it did not meet my expectations. It does not have a methodology to teach adults, You are in class with 14-year-old students who have different ways of learning compared to an adult woman, like me.
More than 15 students can be in its classes, it does not have a library to serve students, they sell everything, even face masks for 1 dollar. I do not recommend Wesli. Siento que se aprovechan de la gente y el servicio es muy regular.

The Homestay service was terrible, I paid $1,000 per month and it was lousy food they did not comply with the vegetarian option and I was always alone in the house.

The agency in Colombia #cosmopolitaneducation told me that it was not their fault that I was poor. I never asked for a discount, I felt cheated and. I don't want the same thing to happen to someone else. Find another place to study English; also, Madison does not have many offers in recreation

No puedo recomendar WESLI, siento que no cumplió con mis expectativas. No tiene una metodología para enseñar a adultos, estás en clase con alumnas de 14 años que tienen formas de aprender diferentes a una mujer adulta, como yo.
En sus clases pueden estar más de 15 alumnos, no tiene biblioteca para atender a los alumnos, venden de todo, hasta cubrebocas a 1 dólar. No recomiendo Wesli. Siento que se aprovechan de la gente y el servicio es muy regular.

El servicio de Homestay era pésimo, pagaba $1000 mensuales y era pésima la comida no cumplían con la opción vegetariana y siempre estaba sola en la casa.

La agencia en Colombia Cosmopolitan education #cosmopolitaneducation me dijo que no era su culpa que yo fuera una persona pobre. Nunca les pedí un descuento, me sentí engañada y. No quiero que le pase lo mismo a otra persona. Encuentra otro lugar para estudiar inglés; además, Madison no tiene muchas ofertas en recreación

EXCELLENT SCHOOL!!!

I am a Chinese student, and my college major was law. I want to become an excellent scholar and researcher in this field in the future.
One year ago, I heard a lot of information about WESLI from my friend Penelope, and she was studying at WESLI at that time. She told me that WESLI is very helpful and offers a good opportunity to study with many experienced teachers, and she strongly recommended me studying at WESLI. It happened that I was busy preparing for my master degree and worrying about my English ability, so I decided to come here.
I've been here for eight months, and I still remember the first time I came to WESLI. It was a snowy morning, and I had never experienced such a freezing weather before. Honestly, I felt unhappy at that time. However, all my bad feelings disappeared when I arrived at WESLI because I found everyone is very friendly and amiable, and it made me feel warm and comfortable.
I have changed a lot during these eight months. Before I came here, I could not communicate with foreigners freely because my spoken English was awful! Also, I could not read academic journals, and I had never thought I can give a presentation in English. However, now I have many friends from different countries, and I read a lot of articles and books and gave a lot of presentations in my class. All these amazing things became true because of WESLI!
My teachers are awesome! They help me practicing my English again and again, and they are willing to answer all the questions. With their help, I become more confident, and my English has improved a lot. In addition, my classes are very helpful. I learned how to write academic articles and evaluate them in my writing class, and I watched many academic lectures and learned how to take notes in my listening and speaking class. I will go to an American university next year, and I think all the things I learned from WESLI can help me adapt to the American college life easily in the future.
I have to say that I love Madison. People are very friendly here, and the environment is super awesome! It's a good place for both living and studying. I live in the dorm now, and I have three amazing roommates; the dorm is close to WESLI which is very convenient for students.

Because of wesli, I spend nine years in the USA

I was planning to spend half year in the ESL, after graduated from the University in 2005. Just like other people, I want to improve my English skills in order to get a better job in my country. Then, I picked WESLI. After three sessions studied (from 400 level), I realized that my English skills were still not good enough. I spent another half year studying in the WESLI. Then, my teacher told me that I could apply for graduated school in the USA. Therefore, I applied and got an admission.
My mystery journey just started. I even got my second master degree in the UW-Madison. I meet my husband and had my wedding party in my lovely teacher’s living room. I had my first baby born in the US. I moved back to China in 2014. You know what? I had never gotten a formal job so far. However, I enjoy my life a lot.
This year, I had a chance to visit my teachers in the WESLI, and stayed in my lovely teacher’s house. For me, they are not only my teachers, but also my families. Friends I meet in the WESLI from other countries, we are still keep in touch and meet sometimes.

WESLI is like a HOME

WESLI is really a wonderful place for you to learn English and American culture. You not only meet great teachers and classmates there, but also can totally involve in the American culture.
The teachers not just teach you English; they let you involve in their life, treat you as friends. These wonderful experiences are really way beyond what you can think of before you go there.
WESLI is really a HOME not a school.

WESLI teachers help me a lot ----Lu

WESLI's course and teachers help me a lot, especially in my career. I was a student at WESLI 10 years ago and I'm a Baker now. It seem like don't use English
often. Without WESLI , I can't read lot of
English version about baking and can't discuss with foreign Baker about baking skills. So WESLI ' teachers give me GOOD foundation!!! That's why I can write a review here and my experience!!
