What is  GSET “The Global Scale of English”?

GSET is the world’s first truly global English language  test which allows you to measure your progress throughout your English language learning journey, from beginner right through to advanced.

This is a brand new test that will revolutionise the way you measure your level of English! busuu is currently the only place where you can take this test and earn your certificate, so you can be one of the first people in the world to benefit from it!

The test measures your level of English across four core skills:

  •      Speaking
  •      Listening
  •      Reading
  •      Writing

It uses advanced speech and writing recognition technology to provide the most accurate result.

Why is it useful?

This test will help you to answer three questions about your English level:

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

The test provides an overall numerical score based on the Global Scale of English (GSE).

After completing the test you will receive your score and will be able to download an official Pearson Certificate.

The school in Cameroon

Busuu will provide all donations to CAPEC, an organisation we have been proud to work with for several years.

Through their school in central Cameroon, CAPEC help provide an education for children who come from low-income families in the local area.

Many of the parents are illiterate and these pupils are often the first generation in their families to be getting an education.
