Welcome to Week 3

JOHN SMITH: Hi, everyone. I am John, one of your course teachers. You might have heard from me in the course discussions. This week, week 3, is all about integrated listening and reading skills, as they are tested in the PTE. Why does PTE test integrated skills? Because real life interactions involve using multiple skills to communicate and interact in a variety of ways and settings. I know you’re keen to dive into week 3, so, let’s go.

In Part 2 and Part 3 of the PTE test, you will be tested on your reading and listening skills.

These sections require you to combine a number of core skills for a range of item types that are designed to test your ability to read and listen to information provided in English.
