Trinity GESE

My English definitely improved and I made a lot of friends.

English Country Schools is an accredited centre for the Trinity Graded Exam in Spoken English. Pupils aged 11+ can choose to prepare for and sit this internationally recognised test to prove their attainment in speaking and listening in English. 

Pupils who wish to sit the exam will join a special class that will help them to prepare for the exam. The Trinity GESE is a 'graded' exam so if candidates are entered at the correct level (which we will try to ensure through our workshop) they will succeed and achieve a useful qualification. 

Not everyone wants to take exams during their summer holidays, but for children who wish to do so the Trinity preparation class and exam could help motivate them to mix and speak English among the various nationalities on the course, to everyone's benefit.

The cost of the preparation class and test is modest. Places are limited and will be offered in the order of applications received.

All GESE grades hold the ALTE Q-mark and have been calibrated to the Common European Framework of Reference (PDF, 401KB).
