A young learner refers to a student who falls below the age of 18, whose attention span, maturity, capacity to learn, motivation, behaviour, interests and general disposition will differ greatly from a mature student. Technically speaking, the age threshold may vary between institutes and countries, reaching as low as 16 or as high as 21 in certain cases.
