PTE Training (Pearson Test Of English) The Pearson’s Test of English (PTE) is an English language proficiency test that is similar to IELTS and TOEFL. Similar to these tests, the PTE is used to evaluate the communication skill of a non-native speaker in English and can help universities determine whether a student can understand the course material if it is taught entirely in English. The PTE is also accepted as a benchmark for English proficiency by countries as a part of their immigration program.
