2 Introduction This resource provides guidance for teachers preparing learners for PTE Academic. It maps each Unit of Language Leader Advanced to subskills s tested in PTE Academic. Using this guide, you can feel confident that you are providing targeted skills development and item type-focused practice for your test takers. The map has the following features: Unit name and skill focus Subskills s tested in PTE Academic Unit 1 Pages PTE Academic subskill Education and employment 6-7 Issues in education 6-7 Issues in education inferring the meaning of unfamiliar words 6-7 Issues in education vocabulary Page location of practice activities and topic of two-page lesson Item types where the subskill Each of the twelve units of Language Leader Advanced has activities to develop and practice general English language skills around a core topic, with sections covering grammar, vocabulary, reading, listening, and speaking and pronunciation. In each unit there is a scenario focusing on extended speaking practice in a real-life situation, drawing together all the skills learned. There is also a section on study and writing skills that develops academic English skills, with a focus on the discourse features of written English. The activities develop the core English language skills without which academic English tasks cannot be completed. You will also find individual activities similar to PTE Academic tasks, such as filling in gaps in sentences, transcribing missing words from a recording, correctly identifying facts in an audio recording, and answering multiple choice questions from reading and listening. Each unit is divided into double-page lessons on a sub-topic, to allow flexibility and ease of use, and this map reflects this grouping of activities and input material. The subskills of PTE Academic and the item types where they are tested are therefore grouped according to the double-page lessons to assist you to use the double-page arrangement as part of effective test preparation. However, through each unit there is a carefully staged introduction of new language as well as recycling of previous language, so there is some advantage in a systematic approach to each unit as a whole. In order to keep this mapping manageable, only the core subskills of each activity relating to specific item types are mapped, so, for example, a reading activity may also practice vocabulary although this may not be specifically listed here for those pages unless there is specific vocabulary work. The Language Leader Advanced Teacher s Book provides objectives for each unit and explains the rationale and plan of each unit and lesson. It also provides the answers to tasks in the Students Book, and has a Test Master CD-ROM for the creation of class tests. A Workbook with further practice is also available.

4 Overview of PTE Academic PTE Academic is a computer-based test of academic English, designed to provide information about the English language level of test takers who wish to study or work in an English-speaking environment. It takes approximately three hours to complete, and is administered in a single session. Test takers respond to between 70 and 91 individual tasks, across 20 different item types, in the four communicative skills of speaking, writing, reading and listening. Test takers register for a test and can view their results online. However, they must go to a test center to sit the test, under secure conditions. PTE Academic uses automated scoring, providing greater reliability. Scores are usually available within five days, and test takers indicate the programs that they wish their results to be sent to, after which the recognizing institutions securely download the PTE Academic scores. PTE Academic has three parts, with an introduction and optional break: Part Content Time allowed Intro Personal Introduction Not scored Part 1 Speaking & minutes Part 2 Reading minutes Optional Break Break 10 minutes Part 3 Listening minutes The item types in PTE Academic are: Speaking Reading Listening Read aloud Summarize written text Multiple choice, choose single answer Summarize spoken text Repeat sentence Write essay Multiple choice, choose multiple answers Multiple choice, choose multiple answers Describe image Re-order paragraphs Fill in the blanks Re-tell lecture Reading: Fill in the blanks Highlight correct summary Answer short question Reading and writing: Fill in the blanks Multiple choice, choose single answer Select missing word Highlight incorrect words Write from dictation The score on each individual item contributes to the overall score as well as to scores on relevant communicative skills. For speaking and writing tasks, scores also contribute to the enabling skills scores (grammar, oral fluency, pronunciation, spelling, vocabulary, written discourse). A typical score report gives detailed information to test takers and recognizing institutions. Language Leader Advanced 3
