Skyrocket Practice Tests Booklets have been designed to work as an additional tool for teachers that can be used not only to review the topics studied in class but also to consolidate them based on an internationally-accepted test format. An opportunity for students to practice the format of young learners’ certifications using the content they have seen throughout the six levels of the series. Each level has a booklet divided into four tests. With the exception of Level 1, the first test of each booklet is a compilation of the topics seen in previous levels. In the case of Level 1, Test 1 can be used as a diagnostic evaluation since it contains topics that could have been covered in preschool. The Reading and Writing, Listening, and Speaking sections of the Skyrocket Practice Tests Booklets have been carefully written, and take into account the 2020 changes made to the certifications for young learners.
