Course description

GESE exams are designed to complement general English language courses and take the form of an unscripted conversation with a Trinity examiner, which covers a range of topics and tasks. They are open to anyone aged 5 or older.
In our Trinity GESE preparation course you will learn about how the exam works, what the examiners will be looking for and you will get plenty of practice using the types of questions you will see in the exam. Be assured that after your course you can tackle the exam with complete confidence! It’s not an empty promise – all our British teachers are CELTA qualified and very experienced, and some of them are Cambridge examiners.
