“I attempted PTE to apply for Australian Immigration. Previously I have attempted different English test, but it was difficult for me to prepare for it, and I was not able to score my target score. PTE helped me to improve my English Languages skills and I have achieved overall 80 score points. They provide the best methods on E2learning that easy and simple to follow.”

“Less time-consuming compared to IELTS in which a separated speaking test has to be taken at a different time. As an introvert, I feel that speaking tests on computers help me to be more focused and less nervous. Therefore, PTE more accurately reflects my speaking ability in English.”
