Cambridge English exams for children

Our exams are designed and developed to motivate children from a young age right through their teenage years and beyond. They cover all four language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking – and bring learning to life.

All our exams are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) – the international standard to describe language ability. This makes it easy to see the progress your child is making in English, and for employers and educational institutions to recognise your child’s ability when they leave school.

See our video How to understand the CEFR.

A certificate from Cambridge English will help your child stand out from the crowd and access the best study, work and life opportunities.
