GESE Initial Grades 1-3
|GESE Grade||CEFR Level|
GESE Initial stage exams are for people with basic English language ability, and focus on building confidence and motivation in English language communication.
GESE Grade 2 and Grade 5 exams are approved for UK visa or settlement purposes.
At all three grades, the exam takes the form of an unscripted conversation with a Trinity examiner, and lasts between
5 and 7 minutes, depending on the grade. The examiner uses visual materials to engage the candidate and create an
authentic conversation to test their speaking and listening skills.
