About GESE – The English Teacher English lessons for Visa application, indefinite leave to remain

Trinity has been offering the GESE since 1938, when it was similar to an elocution test, rather than measuring language development. However, these days it follows communicative teaching methodology and uses meaningful exchanges between the examiner and candidate to test ability.

Since the new Secure English Language Test revisions in November 2017, it is now also used as a marker for English proficiency by government departments dealing with work, study and immigration.

The Test

The GESE a speaking and listening exam only, and is divided into two parts:

Part 1 – the examiner asks the candidate questions about different topics.

Part 2 – the candidate choses one or two topics and has a conversation with the examiner.
