PTE Young Learners
PTE Young Learners are international English language exams for young children who are learning English as a foreign language. They test the four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
PTE Young Learners exams are based around the amusing adventures of the Brown family. The exams are theme based and designed to be fun and motivating. At the lower levels they aim to test how well children can use language structures and at the higher levels how well they can use language to complete communicative tasks. For this reason, the tests use real-life scenarios rather than grammatical exercises.

PTE General (formerly known as the London Tests of English) are international English language exams for speakers of English as a foreign language. It is developed by Pearson Language Tests and administered by Edexcel, the exams are accredited by QCA, the Qualification and Curriculum Authority.
PTE General are theme-based exams designed to test how well a learner can communicate in authentic and realistic situations, and not on how well they remember formal vocabulary and structures. Thus the tests use real-life scenarios rather than grammatical exercises. They test the four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking.
There are six levels which are mapped to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The Framework was developed by the Council of Europe to enable language learners, teachers, universities or potential employers to compare and relate language qualifications by level.
