Trinity ISE & GESE Exams
ELA-Edinburgh is a centre for the Trinity Integrated Skills in English exam.
The ISE test is a general English exam which covers the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. It covers levels A2 (pre-intermediate) to C2 (proficiency) on the Common European Framework. The ISE assessment is unique because it checks your English level not only in an exam, but also through coursework. You will create a portfolio of written work on three topics. This work will cover different genres of written English. Your speaking and listening skills will be checked in an interview. During the interview, you will discuss your written work with the examiner. There is also a reading and writing part to the test, which is taken like an exam. At lower levels, there are two written tasks. At higher levels, there are three writing tasks. For at least one of the writing tasks, you will have to read other texts, then use this information to write.
