The Trinity Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) are internationally recognised exams in spoken English for students who are learning English as a foreign, second or additional language. Universities, multi-national companies and several thousand schools and colleges around the world use these examinations.

The GESE is offered at 12 different grades, which are grouped into four stages of language level. Whatever your level is, you can take an exam to receive a certificate showing your speaking level in English.

We recommend you take this exam to give you confidence in using specific language and to gain an internationally-recognised certificate. It will also give real focus to your English studies.

You can take the Trinity GESE at our exam centre (groups only). It is optional and offered at extra cost (£90). Please contact us for more information at
