Exam Preparation Courses

Angle Education provides preparation courses for Cambridge Examinations (IELTS, KET, PET, FCE and CAE ) and the Trinity GESE Examination.

Angle Education is an approved centre for the Trinity GESE exam, and if you wish your students to take this exam, we can include the preparation and exam as part of the course fee. For other exams, such as the Cambridge Suite, we can prepare your students for the exams, but we cannot currently offer you the chance to take the exam whilst in London.

Our exam preparation courses focus on exam techniques and strategies. Courses will be designed  around each group’s needs and requirements.

TRINITY GESE EXAMINATION

 


 

We prepare students to achieve a Trinity GESE qualification. The Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) test students’ ability in speaking and listening. The examinations are one-to-one oral tests carried out by a Trinity examiner.

There are 12 grades altogether which are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). Anyone from absolute beginners to advanced-level language users can benefit from these examinations.

Why do a GESE exam?

• They are internationally recognised – meaning that you will gain a qualification proving your level of spoken English which is valuable for work or study purposes.
• The exams are practical and allow you to use your own life experience when speaking.
• There are four stages with three grades at each stage so you can gain a qualification no matter what your level:

  • Initial (Grades 1-3)
  • Elementary (Grades 4-6)
  • Intermediate (Grades 7-9)
  • Advanced (Grades 10-12)

 

GESE exams are approved for UK visa or settlement purposes.

We are a Trinity Examination Centre and students can take the Trinity GESE Examination with us at the end of the course.
