Young Learners - in Fukushima, Niigata, Yamagata

We are delighted to announce that children will be taking their Young Learners examinations in the above prefectures on September 11th

Last month we hosted a YLE training session at Luna, with teachers coming from very far and wide to make sure this event would be viable. Hats off to Mario from Sendai, Ryan from Yamagata, Stephen from Aizuwakamatsu, Mike from Sakata, Alan from Ojiya, Anna from Ueda for the miles you covered. They will be on the road again to conduct the speaking tests...

So, which are the very good schools where these exams are on offer?
What is the connection with all these schools? Well, they all have very committed, professional owners who recognise the importance of internationally bench-marked examinations which are suitable for their young students. Jim knows these owners pretty well too, having met them here and there at JALT/ETJ/publisher events over the years. So, if you teach kids up north and want to prove how well your students are doing, why not get in touch with the nearest venue - they are still accepting external entries. Hurry, hurry!
