Every child is different and so is the pace at which they learn a foreign language. However, parents might be keen to see progress quickly and might need teachers’ guidance to understand what progress in early language learning looks like.

This webinar will explore ways in which progress in language learning can be effectively and tangibly evaluated and communicated to parents through Assessment for Learning and Cambridge Young Learners Exams: Starters, Movers and Flyers.
