Thousands of children in Turkey and around the world take University of Cambridge ESOL Young Learners English exams every year.
Children who learn English when they are young will have an advantage that will stay with them all their life. Cambridge ESOL recognises this and has developed a special system of tests designed to get children of primary school age and upwards on the path to learning English. Young Learners English (YLE) is a reliable and consistent measure of how well your child is doing in the skills of listening, speaking and reading and writing. Tests are designed to make learning fun and children are encouraged by working towards certificates and earning the 'shields' that record their progress. There are three levels for children to work through, Starters, Movers and Flyers, with Starters being the first, aimed at young children with very basic skills. As children develop and work their way up to the Flyers certificate, they reach a level that will enable them to aim for the Key English Test (KET) at level A2 on the Common European Framework for Languagesor the Preliminary English Test (PET) at level B1 on the Common European Framework for Languageswhich are qualifications which will be of value for further study or in the workplace.
