Why choose Trinity?
Passing a Trinity exam is a reliable predictor of language performance in the world outside the test. Trinity English tests are very good at promoting effective learning because they reflect the way English is used in real life outside of the exam room.
Our speaking exam is a one-to-one conversation with a Trinity examiner. The exam format enables a meaningful exchange of information, ideas and opinions with the examiner, instead of a formal ‘question and answer’ interview, so this helps you to feel confident and do your best.
