Master Scale

Our level chart is connected to the Global Scale of English (GSE) created by Pearson. The GSE allows you track your progress more easily and more accurately. You can move from one point to another on the GSE more quickly, which is more motivating and shows your specific progress. It is aligned to other globally recognised certifications such as CEFR, IELTS and TOEFL.

What is the Global Scale of English?

The Global Scale of English (GSE) is the world’s first truly global English language standard that allows people to measure progress accurately and easily. It’s aligned to other scales of language progression including the CEFR, but it measures progress on a much smaller scale. This helps you take small steps and see progress more quickly, which keeps you motivated and on track.

When you join Wall Street English, you will be given a full placement test to determine your current level of English. You will begin your learning journey with us at the level that is best for you.

  • If you are an intermediate learner you will learn how to deal with parts of daily life in English such as travel, your job, eating, shopping. You will be able to talk about the plot of a book or your favourite film and even explain problems to a doctor in English.
  • If you are a more advanced learner, you will be able to talk about your professional experience, share your thoughts and opinions on current affairs and global topics. Debate and discuss world news. Learn colloquial expressions and understand jokes in English!
