Details & Highlights

The Trinity GESE examination can be taken at 12 different levels from beginner to advanced and is a great way to show how well you use spoken English. It is also ideal for those seeking Leave to Remain or Citizenship.

Our part time afternoon or evening preparation courses help you to improve your speaking and listening, give you confidence, and prepare you for the face to face interview with the examiner.  Our skilled teachers will also give you advice on the best level to apply for and will coach you in presentation techniques for the higher levels.

You can take the GESE exam at Excel English, an external examination centre or, if you need the qualification for visa purposes, at one of three SELT centres in London. For more details visit Trinity SELT Centres.

We recommend taking the full 4 week course (4 hours per week over 2 sessions), but if you cannot enrol for the complete course, please contact us to discuss studying for fewer weeks. This would usually only be possible at the beginning of each course.

We are also happy to offer GESE preparation to closed groups of students or arrange individual lessons.  Contact us for more details.
