PTE Young Learners
The International Certificate Young Learners (PTE Young Learners) is a fun English language assessment for students aged six to 13, delivered by Edexcel, the UK’s largest examining body.
International Certificate Young Learners tests a young learner’s ability to use structures and functions in realistic contexts and, later on in the series, tests their ability to use language to carry out specific communicative tasks, with an emphasis on real-life scenarios rather than on knowledge of specific language items and vocabulary.
International Certificate Young Learners assesses the four skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing, organised in two parts, the Spoken part and the Written part. Please note that both the Written and Spoken parts need to be attempted to achieve a passing grade.
The International Certificate Young Learners gives students an English qualification accredited by Pearson Edexcel, through a fun, stress-free English test.
- Firstwords (Level 1)
This test is for test takers who can read the English alphabet and recognize simple words and phrases in both written and spoken English; understand and talk about basic facts related to their own lives and environments. The emphasis is on real-life situations that learners will encounter, not on how well they remember vocabulary and structures.
- Springboard (Level 2)
This test is for test takers who can talk about their feelings, habits, likes and dislikes; form questions to obtain the above information from others; read and listen with an understanding of key information and write a simple text about their own lives to a standard that communicates meaning.
- Quickmarch (Level 3)
This test is for test takers who can read texts with understanding, and understand the gist and key information in familiar listening contexts; talk about their own lives in terms of habits, likes, dislikes, future plans and past events and write a simple text about their own life or a familiar environment to a standard that can be readily understood.
- Breakthrough (Level 4)
This test is for test takers who can describe sensations; give instructions and explanations; describe purpose; give opinions and express preferences and deal with hypothetical situations.
