Cambridge Flyers Exam Preparation

To make your child as comfortable as possible before taking Cambridge Flyers exam, we suggest the following exam preparation: –

  • Ensure your child to stay up to date, show them the relevant exam papers. When children are prepared, they will feel more confident and achieve better results. 
  • Encourage your child to attend more English lessons at our learning centre and practice more at home. A child will feel more confident when they can find answers to their questions about the exam when a teacher is present.  
In the Cambridge Flyers Listening exam:
  • The recordings are played twice. If your child misses something the first time they listen, there will be another opportunity to hear the answers.
  • The most important part of colouring a picture is not how well it is done. Your child just needs to find the right part of the picture and use the right colour. 
In the Cambridge Flyers Reading & Writing exam:
  • Ensure your child writes clearly.
  • The answers usually are very short, and words can be copied from a word box or from part of the text, so your child does not need to write the whole sentence apart from last parts of Movers and Flyers.
In the Cambridge Flyers Speaking Exam:
  • Our examiners at our learning centre are very friendly. They are very experience and encouraging. Your child should feel relax and enjoy the speaking part of the exam. Suggest to your child to use words they are familiar to communicate with, for example, ‘Yes please’, ‘Thank you’, Pardon?’ 
  • If you child does not understand something, they can ask our friendly examiner to repeat what they said. They can use words such as, ‘Can you please repeat?’.
