Trinity GESE Exam Preparation

TrinityTrinity Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) are one of the international English language tests offered by Trinity College London, which test speaking and listening skills.

Trinity GESE is commonly used for Secure English Language Test (SELT) purposes in the UK, as it is approved for UK visa or settlement purposes by the Home Office. It is also recognised internationally in various sectors including business, education, health, and the media.

To learn how to study for the exams, you will firstly be advised by our trained teachers what they consist of. In short, the exams cover a range of topics and tasks, and take the form of an unscripted conversation with an examiner from Trinity College London. They are available in many countries and can be taken throughout the year at Trinity exam centres.


The tasks that candidates undertake demand a more advanced use of English as they move up the grades. Rather than simply responding to a series of prompts, candidates at higher grades are expected to take more responsibility for directing and controlling the conversation.
