ESB Entry Level Award in EAL for Young Learners (Entry 2) is for young learners who speak English as an additional language. The overall aim is to promote clear, effective, confident oral communication in a supportive group setting. The Awards in EAL are mapped to the ESOL Core Curriculum and referenced to the Common European Framework for Languages. The qualifications provide a clear cross curricular framework for teaching and testing. They are suitable for learners in UK schools who need to improve their knowledge of English, and therefore their confidence, in order to access the curriculum.


ESB Entry Level Award in EAL for Young Learners (Entry 2)

In order to achieve a pass at this level, candidates are required to achieve the assessment criteria listed under Learning Outcomes 1 to 3 (see syllabus).


The candidate prepares and gives a talk on a topic to the group and the assessor. The talk refers to a visual aid such as a picture, object or poster, for approximately 2-3 minutes. 


After the talk, each member of the group will ask the candidate one question about the talk and the assessor may ask further questions.


In pairs or groups of 3, candidates take turns to ask each other 2 questions about themselves.
