TKT YL (Young Learners) is a specialist module of the Cambridge ESOL Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) that focuses on teaching young learners aged 6-12. This award will increase your confidence as a teacher and help you progress in your teaching career.

TKT YL tests knowledge of:
- young learners and the principles of teaching English to children
- how to plan young learner lessons
- teaching young learners
- assessing young learner learning

TKT CLIL : Content and Language Integrated Learning test knowledge of:
– CLIL and Principles of CLIL
– Planning, Teaching and Assessing

The advantages of TKT for teachers are:
- adding the teaching of young learners to your existing skills
- focusing on methodologies for teaching young learners

Test format:
The TKT Young Learner and CLIL modules consist of a test of 80 objective questions, lasting 80 minutes, which require you to select the correct answer and mark this on a computerised answer sheet. The modules can be taken together in one test session or separately, in any order. Most teachers are likely to follow a preparation course before taking the test but you can also prepare yourself through your own reading and study, if you prefer.

IH Madrid offers a course to prepare teachers for the TKT YL and TKT CLIL exam and as we are a Cambridge ESOL authorised examination centre, we can also organise for candidates to take the test in one of our centres.
Exam fee for each module is 50 Euros.
