PTE Young Learners

Desarrollando las habilidades esenciales para el siglo 21.

El objetivo primordial de PTE Young Learners es que el primer acercamiento al inglés constituya una experiencia memorable y estimulante. Los exámenes evalúan, a través de las cuatro habilidades, la capacidad infantil y juvenil para utilizar estructuras y funciones en contextos de la vida cotidiana. Adaptados especialmente para niños entre 7 y 13 años, ofrecen 4 niveles de progresiva dificultad, alineados con los niveles pre-A1 hasta A2 del Marco Común de Referencia Europeo.

Integración

PTE Young Learners integra las 4 habilidades (comprensión auditiva, lectura, expresión oral y escrita), de suma importancia para mantener la fluidez en una conversación.

Situaciones cautivantes

PTE Young Learners presenta situaciones que los chicos viven cada día. Los temas son internacionales, interesantes y apropiados para la edad, esto ayuda a los niños a conectarse inmediatamente con la temática y la evaluación. Algunos ejemplos de temas son: familia, mascotas, amigos, deportes y vida escolar (“Primer día de escuela”, “ El cumpleaños de la abuela”, “Un nuevo amigo”, “ Vacaciones con mi familia”, entre otros).

Personajes divertidos

PTE Young Learners presenta a una familia inglesa atípica, “The Browns”. Los niños disfrutan leer acerca de su rutina, aventuras y travesuras. Conocer a los personajes y su día a día, hacen del examen una experiencia confortable y cautivadora.

Formato de texto atractivo

PTE Young Learners incluye un examen escrito con seis partes, que evalúa comprensión auditiva, lectura y escritura. Cada parte cuenta con un claro ejemplo que permite a los chicos chequear las instrucciones dos veces. El componente oral se lleva a cabo en mini grupos donde los candidatos realizan dos tareas: un juego didáctico con preguntas para responder, y un tema para desarrollar brevemente. Examinadores especialmente entrenados crean una atmósfera placentera y amigable para favorecer el desarrollo de ambos componentes (oral y escrito).

Certificación

PTE Young Learners está reconocido por Edexcel, el centro examinador más grande de Reino Unido, garantizando de esta manera el progreso académico de los alumnos en un contexto internacional.

Informe Académico a los alumnos

PTE Young Learners provee un reporte detallado del desarrollo académico de los candidatos, incluyendo el desglose de las calificaciones de cada una de las partes: comprensión auditiva, lectura, expresión oral y escrita. Los resultados de los exámenes son: ”Pass with Distinction”, “Pass with Merit”, ”Pass” o ”Fail”. Si los candidatos no aprueban, reciben un informe de su rendimiento, pero no un certificado.

Pearson Tests of English

Developing the essential skills for the 21st century.

An interesting and fun challenge for the youngest learners. Our main goal is that the first approach to English means a memorable and stimulating experience. PTE Young Learners exams assess, through the four skills, the children’s capacity to use structures and functions in real-life contexts. These tests, adapted specially for 7-13 year-old students, offer four levels of increasing difficulty, mapped to levels pre-A1 to A2 on the CEFR.

Scenario-Based Tests

PTE Young Learners boasts a scenario-based test format: all the tasks in the test revolve around an everyday situation which students can easily relate to. It is this feature that marks the difference and makes PTE Young Learners a highly recommended option in the field of international examinations for primary schools.

Integration of skills

PTE Young Learners integrates the four skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. This is of paramount importance to maintain the flow of the conversation.

Appealing Situations

PTE Young Learners presents situations children experience in their own lives. The topics are international, age-appropriate and interesting to children. For example, families, pets, friends, sports and school life are usually present in the tests. Some examples of scenarios from past papers include “First Day at School”, “Grandma’s birthday”, “A new friend”, “ Holidays with my family”, etc. This feature helps students immediately connect with the topic and engage in the test.

Fun Characters

PTE Young Learners introduces a not so typical English family “The Browns” as the main characters in the suite. The children enjoy reading about the everyday activities, adventures and mishaps of the Browns. They become familiar with the characters and events, which makes the testing experience both very comfortable and highly engaging.

Student- Friendly Test Format

PTE Young Learners includes a written paper with six tasks that assess listening, reading and writing. Each task contains a clear example that allows children to double check the instruction in the rubric. The written paper is followed by an oral test carried out in mini groups in which students perform two tasks: a board game with questions to answer and a talk about a topic. Specially trained examiners for this suite strive to create a positive, non intimidating and pleasant atmosphere both in the written and oral examinations.

International Certification

PTE Young Learners is provided by Edexcel Limited, the largest awarding body for academic and vocational qualifications in the UK. Edexcel Limited is the official awarding body for PTE Young Learners, so you can be sure that you are showing your students’ progress in an objective, international environment.

Feedback to students

PTE Young Learners provides detailed feedback in the form of a candidate performance report, which includes a breakdown of the scores for listening, speaking, reading and writing. The grades awarded for the test are Pass with Distinction, Pass with Merit, Pass or Fail. If test takers do not achieve a Pass grade, they receive a candidate performance report, but not a certificate.

There are four levels
