Giving children a head start in English

Cambridge English: Young Learners is a series of fun, motivating English language tests, aimed at children in primary and lower-secondary education. These tests give a reliable and consistent measure of how well a child is doing in learning English.

Cambridge English: Young Learners encourages younger children to work towards three certificates, which are three activity-based tests – Starters, Movers and Flyers.

Tests are designed to make learning fun and children are motivated by working towards certificates and earning the ‘shields’ that record their progress. This gives students a clear path to improve in English.

Cambridge English:Young Learners is designed to offer a comprehensive approach to testing the English of learners in primary and lower secondary education. Learn more
