The Global Scale of English (GSE) is the central pillar of our Connected English Learning Program. It helps students to understand their English language abilities precisely and accurately, which motivates and gives confidence in return.
The GSE helps teachers to confidently place students at their level of progress and to create optimal personalized learning pathways. Their development can be checked against detailed, easy-to-use learning objectives.
