To:       All UF Graduate Coordinators, Staff and Students 

From:     Mr. Gordon Tapper, Coordinator, UF Academic Spoken English 

RE:       Academic Help: Spring 2014 SPEAK Test Dates and EAP and Scholarly Writing Courses


All international graduate students whose first language is not English (official first language of home country) and who may be appointed as teaching assistants (with lecturing/lab responsibilities) need to have a passing score (45 or higher) on either a TSE (Test of Spoken English -- administered by ETS), a UF SPEAK test (administered on the UF campus), or a TOEFL-IBT Speaking test (23+).  In addition, any international graduate teaching assistant whose first language is not English who scores a 45 or 50 on a SPEAK/TSE test, or 23 - 27 on a TOEFL-IBT Speaking section and who is appointed to teach (with lecturing/lab responsibilities) must enroll, during their first semester teaching, in a 3-credit EAP 5836 course. International graduate students appointed as TA-G (grading and office hour responsibilities only) are neither required to pass a SPEAK test nor eligible to enroll in EAP 5836. SPEAK test dates, times and locations for the Spring 2014 semester are as follows:
