English Language Certification for Young Learners

UCERT

UCERT in collaboration with the British Awarding Body TCS is happy to announce the creation of a series of innovative English Language certifications, specifically made for young learners. This is a highly creative series of certificates, which perfectly corresponds to the demands of each level, taking into consideration the age of the candidates. Featuring colourful illustrations, this series manages to make the examination process more pleasant.

The Jungle Kings Series exclusively addresses young learners and it is comprised of three levels. The first two, Level 1 – Jungle Kings Cubs and Level 2 – Jungle kings Hunters, correspond to the junior classes, whereas Level 3 – Jungle Kings Masters corresponds to pre-A1 Level.

BENEFITS OF THE TCS YLE

The main benefits of a candidate’s participation in the TCS YLE are presented below:

  • They are certified by TCS, a valid and world renowned British Certification and Education Body.
  • They are specifically designed to address Young Learners and their needs.
  • All 4 language modules are assessed, depending on the level*.
  • They familiarise Young Learners with the English Language through a motivating and entertaining examination while also boosting their sense of achievement.
  • They can be conducted in multiple examinations throughout the academic year.

  • The examination material is specifically designed for children and appropriate for the interests of young learners.
  • Finally, they highlight the quality of the education provided by the Foreign Language centre, with examinations based on the criteria of a recognised Certification and Education Body.
