The Global Scale of English (GSE) is the world’s first truly global English language standard. It allows you to measure learner progress accurately and easily. The Global Scale of English is aligned to other scales you may have heard of, such as the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and High-Stakes Tests, so you can use it to guide your learning no matter what your ultimate goal.
But a scale needs context. So in order to describe what learners can be expected to do at different levels of proficiency on the Global Scale of English, we’ve created a brand new set of GSE Learning Objectives that describe what a learner should be able to do at every point on the Global Scale of English across each of the four skills.
Interested in taking part in our research?
The research project to create and level learning objectives for different groups of learners – Adults, Young Learners, learners of Professional and Academic English – is ongoing. We would love to hear from experienced teachers who are interested in getting involved. It only takes a couple of hours a month to rate the difficulty level of new learning objectives! Please contact us for more information at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
