Cambridge English exams for young learners



Cambridge English Young Learners international exams for learners aged 4 to 12 are designed carefully with the aim of encouraging children to experience quality methods of assessment at an early age and to introduce their parents to reliable ways of checking progress of their children.

There are three levels for young learners: Pre-A1 Starters, A1 Movers and A2 Flyers, and each level consists of three components that test different language skills: listening & speaking, reading & writing skills. The tests are designed to make learning English fun and to make children enjoy the learning process, but also to give children and parents the opportunity to celebrate achievements and success in English. For this reason, the tests use age-appropriate activities and colorful images, and all candidates receive a certificate that shows their achievement in the form of one to five shields per component.  Research from many countries shows how Starters, Movers and Flyers motivate children, encourage them and their teachers to learn the full spectrum of language skills and help them see where they need to improve.

That is why the introduction of Cambridge English exams at an early age is of multiple importance: to gain a realistic insight into the child's progress in individual skills, as an incentive for comprehensive language learning in a wide range of skills, to become familiar with international standards of language assessment that will later be of great benefit to them if they decide to spend part of their education abroad and finally, as a recognition of the child’s success which will be a strong motivation for further learning. 

With Porta Aperta you can take any level from the Cambridge English exam suite. Helen Doron English offers special courses that prepare students for Cambridge English exams. Alternatively, these exams can be taken independently of the course, if candidates feel ready for the exam or have taken one of the other courses with Porta Aperta.
