PTE Academic

Pearson, publisher of The Economist has to grow a new brand of English language proficiency tests, which they hope to be as popular as the TOEFL is launched today. The new test is as Pearson Test of English (PTE). There are three new forms of assessment. One that will most interest the students, the TOEFL Academic PTE. Already more than 500 universities, including leading the Yale have announced that they accept the Academic PTE dozens of international students. In addition to the university examination, there is also a general of the PTE, and PTE for young learners.

The first PTE Academic will be applied in India in November 2009. Of course, since it's such a review, there is little material to study for to help them. The TOEFL has been around a long, long time. Also, the current version of the TOEFL iBT has been around for years now, so there are many textbooks, examination of the sample and free Internet resources to study like this to help it. It will take some time to appear this amount of material for the new Academic PTE.
