Preparation for these exams and achievement of GESE qualifications supports people wishing to develop their proficiency in English language speaking – for personal goals, study, travel, employment, settlement or for visa application purposes.
GESE exams are available at 12 levels, from Grade 1 to Grade 12 (pre-A1 to C2 CEFR* proficiency levels). Grouped by development stage, GESE grade qualifications offer a progressive framework for the development of English language skills.
We offer students the opportunity to take the GESE in addition to attending 15 hours English Language lessons per week. Students now have the option to enter for the Trinity GESE exam and also to enrol in the special preparation course which will include 6 hours per week of intense tuition specifically guiding the student in preparation of their topic discussion, and the fundamentals of the exam. Students may enter the examination only, or the examination and preparation course, or just the preparation course. These options are supplements to a standard student course.
These 12 grades are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
