介绍

 

What are the Graded Examinations in Spoken English?

什么是英文口语考试(GESE)?

Trinity Graded Examinations in Spoken English are internationally recognized as one of the most prestigious series of English language examinations for testing speaking and listening skills. They take the form of a one-to-one conversation between the student and a highly qualified Trinity examiner who comes from the UK to conduct the assessment. The examinations provide an accurate and reliable assessment of a student’s ability to communicate face to face in English.

 

There are twelve grades, from absolute beginner to full mastery. Reports are given all candidates and successful candidates receive their certificates from London within 6-8 weeks of the examination.

圣三一英文口语考试是最具影响力及受国际认可之一的一项针对会话及聆听技巧的考试。考生与来自英国本土、并具有高级认证资质的考官进行一对一谈话方式的考试,从而准确测试学生面对面交谈的英语运用能力。

 

整个考试分为十二个级别,从英语起步级别到精通水平。考生会于考试后收到考试成绩报告,考试合格者会于考试后的6-8周内获得由伦敦圣三一学院颁发的证书。

 

 

What is involved in the exams考试涉及哪些内容?

The examiner guides a conversation to allow the student to demonstrate their competence in using the language appropriate to the grade of the exam. At each level the student carries out a number of realistic speaking and listening tasks that demonstrate their fluency and accuracy in spoken English. The GESE syllabus clearly sets out what students need to do at each level.

考官选用一个适合考生级别的话题作为引导,使考生得以充分展示语言运用能力。在每一个不同考试级别中,考生通过一连串的情景会话和聆听测试,以展示他们英语口语的流畅程度及准确性。考试大纲内清楚介绍对于每一级别考生的要求。
