leave a comment »

Cambridge English: Young Learners is a series of fun, motivating English language tests,  that become increasingly popular among children in primary and lower-secondary education. There are three activity-based tests – Starters, Movers and Flyers. This gives students a clear path to improve in English.

An award ceremony was recently organised by Eurocentres Language School in Piraeus, Athens to celebrate the achievements of candidates who took Cambridge English exams earlier in the year. Mrs Olga Leondaris, Cambridge English Consultant was present to congratulate the young students for their success.

Below, you can find the quotes of candidates, who recently took the Cambridge English: Young Learners tests – Starters, Movers and Flyers –, about their first official exam experience.

Natalia, YLE – Starters.

“I chose the Cambridge English Examination because I wanted to have a certificate and get experience. I think the examination was easy enough for young learners. I liked the part of speaking most of all.”

Penny, YLE – Movers.

“At first I was excited but stressed at the same time. The oral examiner was very friendly and she made me feel relaxed. So I felt like she was a friend of mine. Reading, Writing and Listening was easy as it was familiar to me because of the preparation books.

The special celebration organised by Eurocentres surprised me in a pleasant way. When I went on stage to receive my award I felt shy because it was the first time this had ever happened to me. But I was happy and satisfied to have scored high grades in my exam.”

Nikos, YLE – Flyers.

“I was constantly thinking of the day I would take my exam. When the day finally arrived I was extremely stressed but when I entered the room, our supervisor tried to calm us down and she succeeded.

Although the test was demanding, with the lessons I had taken in my Language Centre, I was content and I finally received my certificate with full marks. As a result I strongly recommend taking the exam since you prepare yourself and you can also assess your knowledge.

When I learned that I was going to be awarded by a Cambridge Representative I was surprised and thrilled. The event was well organised and gave students the opportunity to express their artistic talents. Consequently the ceremony was memorable and enabled the students, the parents and the teachers to strengthen their relationship.”
