English Language Learning (ELL)

Wisconsin Resident Admission - Learn English

Provides English for adults whose native language is not English. Instruction from beginners to advanced is offered online and face-to-face at various locations. These classes focus on reading, writing, speaking, presentation, and career skills through English language immersion. Workplace communication is also included.

Classes are little to no cost for Wisconsin residents and prepare learners for the GED/HSED, ABE, and college programs.

  • Complete course registration
  • Discuss class content, descriptions and options
  • Take a campus tour
