Read what former ESL students have to say about the ESL Program:
"I consider this an extraordinary experience to gain in-depth exposure of English from various aspects and dynamic interaction with the ESL faculty who demonstrate their care, patience and diligence to students from all over the world. I would personally convey my thanks to those lecturers, Ms. Beth Ernst and Ms. Julie Adler who provided the sincere help and support when I was in UWEC and would strongly recommend this programme to those who intend to pick up English as a second language."--Student from China
“ESL 360 gave me information about American culture so I learned a lot. And it helped to understand American culture. Both classes I took helped me to improve my English. ESL 305 allowed me to improve my writing skills. I have to do an internship abroad where I will need to use my English skills. So I enjoyed this class.”--Student from France
“The ESL classes improved my reading, writing and listening skills. With my English progress, it is going to be easier for me to enroll in a PhD program”--Student from Mexico
“I had so many positive experiences this semester. I think my English is better than in the past. I removed my fear of English”--Student from South Korea
“The ESL program is giving to me a useful tool that is a new language which I'm trying to develop day by day.”--Student from Venezuela
