We have introduced Trinity Spoken examinations (GESE) as an integral part of our Young Learner Programmes. Now, as well as an amazing learning experience and fun filled social programme , each student goes home with a Trinity certificate appropriate to their achievable level of language. Trinity exams, particularly the unique spoken interview, offer distinctive benefits to learners. This motivates learners so that when they have an opportunity to communicate in English, they have confidence in their abilities. Please note that this is included when you book 3 weeks course.
Why take a Trinity exam?
o INCLUSIVE - everyone can get a qualification, from beginner to proficient
o PRACTICAL - emphasises the communicative use of language
o IMMEDIATE- you will get your provisional results immediately after the exam session
o PERSONAL- candidate led, based on individual experience and chosen ‘topic’
o MOTIVATIONAL – tests what student CAN do, honours achievement from the very beginning and at every stage of your English language learning journey
