What Students Say
My experience has been that WESL is a great place to study. After I graduated from
WESL, I realized how much my English had improved. When I first came here, I was scared
of speaking English with Americans and I had a hard time catching what they said. Now
I feel more comfortable and confident when I speak. I think WESL provides an efficient,
well-organized program of study, and WIU is a great environment for international students.

The WESL program is very helpful. We can make friends from many countries,
so we can learn about other cultures as well as American culture.

Since WESL is my first educational experience in the USA, I cannot compare it
with other institutes. That said, it is like a first love - there is no match to WESL
Institute. I find in this program that there are dynamic courses and thoughtful teachers
as well as an administration that care about students. The teachers and administrators
do their best to help the students succeed. These are the real Higher Values in Higher Education.

Macomb is a very lovely and safe town. The campus is big and
beautiful, and the people are very friendly and helpful.
- Nurahment Nuryllayev (Turkmenistan)
The teachers are very kind and patient with students. I have had a lot
of opportunities to talk with and meet American students. What I
learned from WESL has been very useful for me in my WIU classes.
