Who We Are

Founded in 1981, WESLI (Wisconsin ESL Institute) has earned an excellent reputation in the Madison community and among universities and colleges for equipping international students with skills to succeed in competitive academic and professional environments and for providing a wonderful cross-cultural experience for our students. Today, WESLI offers over 30 courses across seven levels, an online English program, English for the workplace, and a TEFL certification program. WESLI has about 150 students each session. Students come from over 40 countries.

WESLI has a long history of a family-like atmosphere, as teachers and staff care about students personally while they assist them academically. Most staff members have lived abroad, speak one or more foreign languages, have years of experience teaching English, and have been at WESLI for more than 10 years. WESLI is a collaborative workplace with a team approach, which allows employees to grow in skills and responsibilities according to employees’ performance and interests and WESLI’s needs.
