WHY CHOOSING PTE YOUNG LEARNERS ?
TEST FORMAT & LEVELS
A fun, stress-free English test for young learners with a variety of practical and age appropriate questions.
- Written test (Listening – Reading – Writing): 60 – 75 minutes
- Speaking test: 20 minutes/group
PTE Young Learners is not a test of grammar and vocabulary knowledge, it tests a young learner’s ability to use structures and functions in realistic contexts and, later on in the series, tests their ability to use language to carry out specific communicative tasks, with an emphasis on real-life scenarios rather than on knowledge of specific language items and vocabulary. The tests follow the adventures of the Brown family across all test levels.
