9 Pre A1 Starters Activities for Kids: Learn English Through Play

The Cambridge English Young Learners (YLE) system’s first test, Pre A1 Starters, is designed for children in elementary school. By taking this exam and obtaining the Starters certificate (which corresponds to Pre A1 level in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) children can begin to understand English from books, songs and movies. Even connect with friends from around the world.

Cambridge offers 9 easy English learning activities that cater to learners at the Starters level. Parents are encouraged to motivate their children to try out these activities specially designed by Cambridge.

1. Learning English through the song “At the Zoo”

Most children enjoy singing and having fun while learning. When parents/teachers use songs to teach English to children, it can have the following benefits:

  • Motivate children to listen and sing along to English melodies.
  • Help children quickly learn and remember new English words.
  • Promote other learning activities and build confidence in children.

Simple English songs like “At the Zoo” can help children visually and easily learn and remember new words. The song video includes subtitles allowing children to sing along and enthusiastically practice their vocabulary.
