What is Young Learners English?

Cambridge YLE is designed to get children of primary school age and older on the path to learning English. The YLE tests are broken down into three levels - Starters, Movers and Flyers – and are designed to make learning fun: Young Learners are encouraged by working towards certificates and earning the 'shields' that record their progress.

What will your children get from YLE?

Young Learners English is based around teaching children English as early in life as possible, and making the experience effective and enjoyable. English is a skill that will help children achieve their full potential in later life and the sooner they start learning, the better.
