This course helps you to prepare for the “Pearson Test of English (Academic)”. PTE-A is a globally recognised computer based test generally preferred by those who wish to have education abroad and also by companies and educational institutions in Turkey to assess your level of English. The courses provide candidates with tactics for the test content and what is expected from them and give opportunity for plenty of practice in specific areas.

+Essay writing language and techniques,
+High command in 4 main language skills; reading, listening, writing and speaking,
+Integrated use of four main communication skills,
+Tips and practices for reading and listening skills,
