Pearson Test of English (PTE / PEIC)

PTE (as of April 2021 also known as PEIC, Pearson English International Certificate) is an internationally recognized exam, specifically designed to align with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), with gradual approach, to avoid sudden jumps in level. Each candidate can purchase and choose to take the individual exam corresponding to a specific CEFR level. All levels are recognized on a global scale and are accepted by employers and educational authorities in several countries as proof of language proficiency. In Italy the exam is recognized by the MIUR and can be used for competitions.
For the levels A2 to C1, the certifying body is adopting a new tool, the Readiness Test, an adaptive test through which the students will be able to:

  • assess their initial level of preparation;
  • carry out targeted exercises to fill in the educational gaps;
  • check their progress step by step by taking additional specific tests.

Thanks to this tool, the student will be able to assess their preparation for the exam.
