What is the Global Scale of English (GSE)?
The Global Scale of English is a framework for teachers and learners. It pinpoints learners' proficiency on a granular scale of 10 to 90 for each of the four key language skills: speaking, listening reading and writing.
It sits at the heart of Pearson Connected English Learning Program and is embedded into our courseware, assessments and certification for seamless learning and teaching.
The GSE is designed to build learners’ confidence by understanding exactly where they are on their learning journey, setting personalized goals to focus their learning and accurately measuring their progress. It’s proven to progress learners through proficiency levels quicker by ensuring they are set the right level of challenge to keep learners motivated and engaged.
