Welcome from Macquarie University

Welcome to the PTE Academic Speaking preparation course designed by Macquarie University from Sydney, Australia in partnership with PTE Academic.

Practise your PTE Academic Speaking Skills contains useful strategies to help you achieve your desired score in the speaking section of PTE Academic. To make the most of this course, we have a couple of suggestions for you:

  • Peer collaboration: Collaborating with other participants and analysing their responses allows you to reinforce what you have learnt. When giving feedback to other participants, make sure that your comments are constructive and not offensive. Remember that you will also receive feedback from others.
  • Padlet: You will have many opportunities to practise what you learn on the course. Many of the activities take place on the FutureLearn platform, but for some, you will use Padlet. This is an app/website where you will be able to access practise questions and record your answers. For a better learning experience, we recommend that you download the app on your phone and/or open an account. Note: The time for this course does not include the time you will spend completing Padlet activities.

If you’re new to FutureLearn, you may wish to check out our guides to getting started on the platform and learning online.

If you’re discussing the course on Twitter, Facebook, or the social network of your choice, don’t forget to use the course hashtag #FLPTEAcademic.
