English as a Second Language Institute (ESLI)
The ESL Tutoring Lab at UW-Stout is a quiet, comfortable space for current and former ESL students to gather. The lab is a place set aside on campus that serves as a study space where students can work together on projects or just hang out with friends. ESL students have scheduled tutoring times where they meet with ESL tutors and former student volunteers. Volunteer opportunities are always available for those interested.
The ESL Language Lab at UW-Stout holds ESL classes for students who are beginners to academic-ready. Students from many countries participate in UW-Stout’s ESL program. To date, these countries have included China, Japan, Korea, Nigeria, Peru, Puerta Rico, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Venezuela, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, India, Sweden, Vietnam, Thailand, and Turkey.
“We encourage our students to learn to do things themselves and be self-reliant,” says ESL instructor, Cody Cegler. "The language lab supports student growth and prepares students for success at UW-Stout."
