Trinity’s Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) are one-to-one oral assessments of speaking and listening skills with a Trinity examiner. Available at 12 grades of proficiency from CEFR level pre-A1 to C2, they are suitable for all learners from beginner to advanced.
Regulated by Ofqual and awarded the ALTE Q-mark by the Association of Language Testers in Europe, Trinity’s GESE qualifications equip people with the English speaking and listening skills they need for life in the 21st century. Candidates typically range from schoolchildren and college students to mature learners wanting to improve their English for study, travel, employment or immigration purposes.
Trinity’s GESE exams assess a range of speaking and listening skills and test what a candidate can actually do, rather than just what they know.
Preparation for GESE exams focuses on the development of authentic communicative skills and on building the confidence to use English in real life. Achieving a GESE qualification provides both individuals and institutions with reliable evidence of English language speaking skills.
