The Global Scale of English Learning Objectives

The Global Scale of English logoThe Global Scale of English (GSE), the world’s first truly global English language standard, will allow you to measure progress accurately and easily. Our ultimate ambition is to provide learners – wherever they are in the world – with the answers to these questions:

  • How good is my English?
  • Am I progressing?
  • What do I need to do next?

 

The GSE Learning Objectives describe what a learner should be able to do at every point on the Global Scale of English.

Here you can download the tailored learning objectives, including Adult Learners, Academic English and Professional English. We are currently developing learning objectives tailored to the needs of those aged 6-14 and our initial research findings are now available. This research project is ongoing and Pearson English would love to hear from experienced teachers who are interested in helping to rate new descriptors.
