NewZNew (Chandigarh) : Cambridge English Language Assessment has launched an online / mobile app exclusively for parents of 6-12 year old children – the Cambridge English Parents Network.
With the increasing use of mobile technology, the Cambridge English Parents Network app offers parents the opportunity to access, explore and use the repository of curated learning resources offered by Cambridge English that they can use to help their children in their English language communication activities.
The app also provides a networking platform for parents to connect with one another, view and share resources. It offers a managed network to enable seamless flow of information and becomes a repository of all the past communication and learning resources that can retrieved and reused with convenience. Hundreds of parents are members of this networking app where they can connect with each other, share their ideas and opinions as well as help prepare their children for the Cambridge English: Young Learners tests.
The Cambridge English: Young Learners is a series of fun, motivating, English language tests aimed at children in primary and lower secondary education. There are three activity-based tests – Starters, Movers and Flyers. This gives students a clear path to improve English. Parents who download the Cambridge English Parents Network app will be able to view resources for each of these tests.
Access to Cambridge English Parents Network is through invitation and parents interested to register can give a missed call to 08030636075 or register on www.younglearnersenglish.org. Parents can also access www.younglearnersenglish.org where they will be able to contact preparation centres in their neighbourhood which offer training for the Cambridge English Young Learners exams for their children.
T.K Arunachalam, Regional Director – South Asia, Cambridge English Language Assessment says, “In today’s fast-paced world where technology and mobile apps in the forefront of everything, a learning app with child-friendly resources which parents can access anytime to help their children develop their communication skills with the swipe of a touch screen will be a welcome addition”.
