Welcome to UW-Madison’s English as a Second Language Program. Our mission is to support the University’s international students. We provide a wide range of ESL courses for undergraduate and graduate students. We train international teaching assistants to become more effective teachers and prospective ESL teachers who desire TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certification. Our program supports the University’s community and international outreach goals. We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have.
