There was an online tutor that was very good who dealt with IELTS. Reasonable fee and done via Skype at a time that suits.

helped my wife. More so in how to approach the questions which made difference to answering them.

Hi,
Just wondering if you have any tips for the PTE. My partner is guna book this one as he has done ielts twice and although we got the score we needed for 60 points, he was half a mark off getting superior for the 20 points. Very annoying. He wants to give the PTE a go as he does t m ow how he can get any higher in the ielts. Just wondering g if you have any tips, any areas he should practice more? Also is it quite easy to get booked onto a course? Any info would be appreciated!

Booking is easy enough. They want to make it easy to take your money!

Are you an native english speaker? The feedback from others is that the speaking part is difficult for people from India.

I suggest your partner practises on this software: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxSAhiEs5XzvYzE0SDhQYXN6OFU

There are loads of videos on this YouTube channel to help - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvSdD8_0DAKn-ThHWhAhoAg/videos

For the essay this structure works, gives you high written discourse and is easy to use. - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wAKkcUDc4PId3m-WjqxZfjQFG9D6tZ1DiNYomVZ2G2w/edit?usp=sharing
All PTE essay prompts ask your view and opinions so this will work.

I also suggest you understand how this is scored so you know where to pick up the marks. There is some negative marking on the reading section so on some questions its not a good idea to guess if you don't know the answer.

Thanks for the info! He has had a quick look at the practice tests and said it seems more difficult than the ielts but that's prob just because it's completely new. He sailed through the reading, listening and speaking on ielts, just bloody half a mark off in the writing. So frustrating! Yes we are native English speakers [emoji106]
