Young Learners English Tests
The Cambridge Young Learners English Tests are specially designed for children between the ages of seven and twelve. The tests consist of three levels: Starters, Movers and Flyers.
English for Young Learners
Children who learn English when they are young will have an advantage that will stay with them all their life. Cambridge ESOL recognises this and has developed a special system of tests designed to get children of primary school age and upwards on the path to learning English.
Young Learners English (YLE) is a reliable and consistent measure of how well your child is doing in the skills of listening, speaking and reading and writing. Tests are designed to make learning fun and children are encouraged by working towards certificates and earning the ‘shields’ that record their progress.
As children develop and work their way up to the Flyers certificate, they reach a level that will enable them to aim for the Key English Test (KET) or the Preliminary English Test (PET) — qualifications which will be of value for further study or in the workplace.
