What does the GSE Teacher Toolkit contain?

The GSE Teacher Toolkit is a free tool which contains a global standard of reference developed by Pearson over a number of years in collaboration with teachers, ELT authors and language experts from around the world. This online, searchable database includes:

  • The Global Scale of English.
  • Over 2,000 GSE Learning Objectives: search by learner type, skill or CEFR/GSE level.
  • Over 450 GSE Grammar Objectives: search by grammatical category, structure or CEFR/GSE level.
  • 36,000 Vocabulary words (including more than 3,000 YL words) and 80,000 collocations: search by topic, grammatical category or CEFR/GSE level.
  • Over 200 jobs linked to GSE Learning Objectives: search by job family or occupation

The Global Scale of English gives programme managers/curriculum developers something concrete to work from. It provides a tested and reliable framework upon which to build a curriculum.
