Cambridge English: Young Learners is a series of fun, motivating English language tests, aimed at children in primary and lower-secondary education. There are three activity-based tests – Starters, Movers and Flyers.

 Reasons to choose Cambridge YLE exams

 Tests are designed to make learning fun and children are motivated by working towards certificates and earning the ‘shields’ that record their progress.

 Cambridge English: Young Learners leads on to other Cambridge English examinations designed for young people, e.g. Cambridge English: Key for Schools, Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools and Cambridge English: First for Schools.    

 Results are reported in a way designed to provide positive encouragement to the learners. All candidates who complete their test receive a certificate, which focuses on what they can do , and gives the children credit for having taken part in the test.

The test uses realistic everyday situations to bring learning to life.

The test covers all major varieties of English (e.g. British English, American English).
