Trinity GESE Exam Preparation

Trinity GESE Examination Preparation



About the Trinity College GESE

The Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) is a useful examination to take if you need to show evidence of your speaking and listening skills. The GESE is different to Cambridge ESOL and IELTS exams because there is no reading or writing paper.

Instead, each candidate has a short speaking test with a registered examiner. The results are available on the day of the exam and the certificates are sent a few weeks after. The GESE at grade 2 is a UKBA-approved exam for spouse/settlement visa applicants*.

With our GESE package, you can register for the exam and the classes in one go. Classes are scheduled as near to the exam date as possible to ensure you feel confident and ready on the day.

Minimum Age: 16

Level: beginner to proficiency (A1 to C2)

Tuition: 3 hours

Start Date: anytime

Course Length: flexible
