LSBF and InterActive launch first online PTE preparation course in English
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
LSBF School of English, in partnership with award-winning education provider InterActive, has today launched a new platform to increase access to English education worldwide. OnlinEnglish is the first web-based course in English for the Pearson Test of English (PTE), which is an exam taken by students from around the world aiming to meet the language requirements for studying in the UK.
The PTE Academic is one of the secure tests accepted by UKBA as proof of English language level. The exam is also accepted by universities and colleges across the UK and is considered one of the key elements for international students aiming to study at first-class higher education institutions across the country.
OlinEnglish provides a comprehensive, user-friendly course that will prepare students for the PTE test as fully as possible. The platform features an in-depth package including English lessons, tasks and strategies to complement each stage of the exam, sample answers, test tips, practice test and online technical support.
The sessions provided by Online English are delivered by experienced, highly qualified teachers who really understand the Pearson Academic Test of English. They will systematically take you through each of the task types in the PTE to help you to gain confidence in all the skills tested as well as helping with test time management.
LSBF School of English’s Managing Director Fay Drewry said: “We’re really proud to have worked in partnership with InterActive and now be able to launch a revolutionary tool such as OnlinEnglish. Every year thousands of students take expensive, long courses just to prepare themselves to the PTE Academic. Now, with OnlinEnglish, these students will be able to have access to first-class, tailored lessons at any time, from their own computers.”
InterActive’s Managing Director Vitaly Klopot said: “OnlinEnglish is a ground-breaking platform because it’s the first online preparation course focused exclusively on the PTE exam. The tool has been tested and approved by Pearson and it’s taught by experienced teachers, who can give the students the best preparation. We believe that OnlinEnglish will expand the access to global education and give people from everywhere in the world the opportunity to improve not only their careers, but also their lives.”
