You probably already know that Trinity's Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) are perfect for younger learners and teenagers, but did you know that they are also regularly taken by young adults and adults all around the world?While the Initial and Elementary stages are often taken by children and teenagers, they are also frequently taken by adults too. Meanwhile, the Intermediate and Advanced stages are particularly suited to older teenagers and adults of any age.
We are going to meet five people who are taking a GESE exam. We will see the different levels, ages, and their reasons for taking it.
GESE by online delivery
In response to the situation created by COVID-19, Trinity has developed a digital alternative method of offering GESE and ISE speaking and listening exams. Candidates are now able to take their one-to-one assessments online with an experienced Trinity examiner via video conference in registered exam centres. See the video above to learn more.
We have met six quite different people. They have all brought their lives into the exam room and have all had a personalised experience of the GESE exam. We have seen that the Elementary and Initial exams can be suitable for any age, while the Intermediate and Advanced ones can even help to develop skills important at any stage of life.
