Summers and winters in the Midwest are breathtakingly beautiful and full of adventure. UW-Stout offers two distinct short-term (four-week) American Culture and Language programs for adult ESL learners to experience Midwestern hospitality and learn English with a standard American accent. Located in the heart of the Midwest just 50 miles from the Twin Cities, St. Paul & Minneapolis, Menomonie, Wisconsin was ranked one of the “20 Best Small Towns in America” by Smithsonian Magazine. Situated in the downtown area with breathtaking views of the 1009-acre (408 hectares) Lake Menomin, UW-Stout has it all. In four short weeks you’ll experience why so many fall in love with Midwestern charm, whether by tasting fresh Wisconsin Cheese on a nearby factory tour, savoring an award-winning local pizza and brew, awakening a liking for an up-and-coming musician at an outdoor concert in Eau Claire, or catching a show at the famous Mable Tainter theater. Unique festivals and sporting events create a vibrant, culturally-enriching, family-oriented and welcoming community all year round.
