This General English course is intended to improve the general language skills of non-native speakers of English and will focus on listening, speaking, reading, and grammar.

Who participates? Non-native speakers of English of all proficiency levels may attend this program. It is designed for participants who are already in the United States. For example:

  • visiting faculty

  • exchange visitors

  • employees of local companies

  • residents of Lexington and surrounding areas

  • graduate students

  • spouses of graduate students and faculty

  • and anyone else who does not need a student visa

Can I take the TOEFL? Yes. At the end of each 8-week term, students have the option to take the institutional TOEFL (TOEFL ITP). The cost is $50, payable via check or money order in our main office or at the test center. Please note that, unlike the TOEFL Internet-Based Test (TOELF IBT), the scores for the TOEFL ITP may only be used at the University of Kentucky.
