Cambridge Assessment English: Young Learners (YLE), give a consistent measure of how well 7–12 year–olds are doing in the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Tests are designed to make learning fun and children are encouraged by working towards certificates and earning ‘shields’ that record their progress.

Making learning English fun
Learning English and gaining the right qualification can give your child a head start in life, leading to improved employment opportunities and opening the door to studying and working abroad.

Children who learn English when they are young have an advantage that will stay with them all their life. The sooner they start learning, the better – with the right methods, they can learn English quickly, effectively and enjoyably. Even the most basic certificate is a start on the pathway to qualifications that are useful for work and study.



Making learning a new language enjoyable is an important part of encouraging progress and building confidence. Cambridge English: Young Learners encourages younger children to work towards three certificates, Starters, Movers and Flyers. By using engaging materials, children build real language skills that develop into a good grasp of English.
