English for Young Learners

A modern approach to learning

 

Part-time courses, revision classes and exam preparation for young learners from 7 to 12 years old

 

Young Learner classes at PLC School are aimed at providing part-time study or extra tuition after government / regular school hours, at weekends, or during school holidays.

PLC School is a private language school and does not offer full time English courses or a government curriculum for young learners or young children.

 

Placement Test

 

Young Learners placement test

 

A full online placement test is available to assess current ability. The test is interactive and specifically designed for young learners. It is a full assessment with video and listening sections in a bright and fun environment. The results are given as a level within the international CEFR scale.

The online placement test can be taken online at PLC School. Alternatively, you can take the test online from any country or location, or from home if it is more convenient (internet connection is required).

 

Cambridge English

 

Young Learner Cambridge English

 

PLC School can help to prepare young learners for examination level English. Practice tests, exam techniques and guided learning are aimed at preparing young learners for the Cambridge Starters, Movers and Flyers certificates. When the student is ready, the exam is taken at an authorised Cambridge exam centre (not at PLC School). If the student passes, they are issued with a full Cambridge certificate.

The primary aim may not be study for exams. However, PLC School will advise parents of the option once a student reaches the appropriate level.

 

Reading for Pleasure

 

Young Learners placement test

 

PLC School encourages the use of graded readers for young learners. These are books that have had the language level simplified to help second language learners read them. The language is graded for vocabulary and grammar structure. A free online placement test is available to assess level.

Graded reading can often be engaging for young learners and it is an effective way to receive a second language. The stories and subjects offer interesting material that can be used in class with a teacher to study language use, meaning, and structure, along with effective development of reading and writing skills.

 

Blended Learning

 

The part time English Language course for young learners includes elements of blended learning. This means there is a lot of extra self-study materials and resources the student can access when away from the classroom. As a parent, you can become involved in guidance or study, or encourage your child to study further when they are at home.

The course books and the interactive CDs offer a colourful and interesting course for young learners with audio and songs. Pronunciation practice, vocabulary, the introduction of structure, and practice of the language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) are all included.

  • Interactive exercises and tests
  • A CD-ROM is provided with the Student Book
  • Extra CD-ROMs and work books are available
  • Online practice and activities
  • Online support and material for parents
