Cambridge English: Young Learners (YLE) is a series of fun and engaging activity-based English language tests. It introduces primary and lower-secondary level students to everyday written and spoken English, and is an excellent way to gain confidence and improve their communication skills. The tests are created for children and use topics they are familiar with.
The exams systematically cover four major aspects of language skills – Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking – and test the practical use of communicative language. This helps students develop everyday communication skills required to make friends, travel, study and work anywhere in the world with the support of good English – the universal language.
The exams start at beginner level and go up to higher level exams enabling students to improve their English step-by-step and build their confidence. Every test is designed to meet the broader objectives of truly nurturing and contributing to a student’s learning and development.
