At the end of the summer programme, the children will undergo the Young Learners tests,that are designed to make learning fun and children are motivated by working towards certificates and earning the ‘shields’ that record their progress. The tests will also include multiple fun tasks such as drawing, colouring and solving puzzles. As there is no pass/fail for these tests, all the children who take the test will be awarded Cambridge English certificates upon completion. These certificates will provide information about the progress of children during the course and motivate them to move ahead to the next level and gives students a clear path to improve in English.

Learning English at an early age gives children an advantage while pursuing their further studies and in their career. Since English is a major medium of instruction in most schools, universities and workplaces in India, the curriculum of this programme is designed with international standards and flexible training sessions that includes games, puzzles and other interactive activities divided into 3 levels. The programme will be conducted at Cambridge English preparation centres across the country.
