This research aims at examining the Students' perceptions of the effectiveness of the English program implemented in the College of Technological Studies in Kuwait. A sample of 242 students was randomly selected from the population. The students were asked to respond to a 21-statement questionnaire designed to obtain information about how they perceive their competencies in English after they have successfully completed the requirements of the English program. The statements of the questionnaire were distributed in such a way so that information can be obtained about five areas that have bearings on the attainment of the goals of the program and the students' improvement in the four skills. Overall, the participants viewed the English program as effective in improving their English competencies. However, they also pointed to some inadequacies which seem to be related to the program's implementation. In order for these inadequacies to be effectively redressed, the researchers recommend that further studies be conducted on other aspects of the programs, like the teaching methods and tools used in implementing it and feedback from instructors.
