Pearson Test of English Young Learners

Basic Information about the Tests

The tests are offered at 4 levels, Firstwords, Springboard, Quickmarch and Breakthrough,
and are designed to motivate young learners from their first encounters with English Language
learning and to acknowledge their achievement.

The aim of the tests is primarily to test a learner’s ability to use the language
communicatively rather than to test their knowledge of the language system, although it is
recognised that knowledge of the language system underpins communication. At all levels in
the written test, learners are tested in their listening, reading and writing skills. There is also
a speaking test, conducted by a trained examiner, in which learners participate in a board
game and an individual activity.

As learners progress through the levels, there is growing emphasis on the scenario rather than
on knowledge of specific language items and vocabulary.

Although the test is presented using British English, American English is acceptable. A
knowledge of the Roman script is assumed at all levels.

The dates of test sessions can be found on our website

Certificates are awarded for Pass, Merit and Distinction at each level.

The Brown Family

Throughout the four test levels, the learner will meet and share some of the everyday
routines, adventures and mishaps of the Browns, a British family.

The Brown family all live in London. Mr Tom Brown is a busy pilot who flies all over the world,
even to the countries where children do the Pearson Test of English. Mrs Elizabeth Brown is a
supermum. She looks after her four children and also works as a vet. Naturally she meets lots
of animals every day.

The oldest of the four Brown children is Anna. She is working hard for exams at school and
likes sports, dancing and pop music. Her younger brother also likes sport. In fact, he is crazy
about football and loves Arsenal football team and computer games. Unfortunately, he is
better at football than he is at doing his homework. Sophie is the second youngest child. She
likes helping her mother with the animals and looks after the family pets. Jack is the baby of
the family. He enjoys playing with his toys and never goes anywhere without his teddy bear.

Paul and Mary Brown are the children’s grandparents. They live very near the family and
often come over to baby-sit. Both are retired now but they were farmers. Mary loves cooking
and Paul enjoys gardening.
