Why Cambridge YLE?

Cambridge Young Learners English Tests (also known as YLE) is one of the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations tests targeted at children aged K2 and up.

These Cambridge YLE courses are designed for children with previous English learning experience, who want a short exam preparation course before taking Cambridge YLE exam. Our courses aim to provide practice in all areas of the test. In addition, the students will be familiar with all aspects of the exam and know what to expect on the exam date. Students will gain confidence in approaching all task types in each paper of the exam.

The examination has three different levels: Starters Exam (typically for K2, or P2), Movers Exam (typically for P3 and P4) and Flyers Exam (typically for P5 and P6). At each level, the examination is divided into three different sections. The first is Reading and Writing, the second is Listening and the third is Speaking. For each section, candidates can score a maximum of five “shields”. The division of levels is according to ability, rather than age. Therefore, it is possible for a six-year old child to acquire the full marks (all fifteen “shields”) in the Flyers Exam.

考試及評核局昨公布今年全港性系統評估(TSA)報告,當中小三中文科整體達標率由去年86.4%下跌至85.8%,教育局長吳克儉表示,部分科目達標率有上落,但學生水平大致平穩。

吳克儉又表示,大部分學校表示,結果達到其預期目的,教育局亦會為支援學校作分析,分析學生需留意之處,讓學校改善教與學重點。他說,TSA與學業壓力是不對等的,亦有家長反映兩者是不同的,他又指家長及學校都反映TSA試行計劃的題型有改善,反應正面。
