  SINA HostDavid is the Director of Test Development in Pearson Language Testing. Some of our Chinese test takers may know something about PTE Academic already, and some would like to know more about it, would you please give us a brief introduction to PTE Academic?

  郑英:PTE学术英语考试是一种新型的基于计算机的考试,它是从2009年10月份向全球推广。由全球著名的教育出版传媒集团——培生集团旗下培生语言考试中心研发的。目前PTE学术英语考试在全球范围内被很多知名院校认可,有很多专业的合作伙伴,其中包括我们大家众所周知的新东方等等。目前有大约超过2690所学术机构认可我们PTE学术英语考试。同时,这个考试被美国管理专业委员会认可并推荐的。

  Zheng Ying: PTE Academic is an academic English test for students whose first language is not English. It was launched inlate 2009 by Pearson and is recognized by renowned colleges, universities, and training providers, e.g. New OrientalSchool in China and professional partners and associations across the English-speaking world. Globally, more than 2600 academic programs now accept PTE Academic scores. PTE Academic is endorsed and preferred by the prestigious Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAC®), owner of the Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®).

  主持人:这个考试是非常权威的。

  SINA Host: So PTE Academic is a very authoritative English test.

  郑英:对。

  Zheng Ying:Absolutely.

  主持人:这个考试适应哪些群体?中国哪些学生适合考试,认可的院校具体有哪些?

  SINA Host:Who is this test for? And what kind of institutions accepts PTE Academic?

  David Booth我们现在考试有2600多所高等院校在全球各地认可我们的考试,其中有85%英国院校认可我们的考试,85%院校中有75%以上归属与英国罗素大学集团。大家可能对罗素大学集团不是很熟悉,它相当于美国常青藤集团,就是名校集团。同时有1500多家美国学校认可我们。除了高等院校之外,PTE学术英语考试还被UKBA(英国边境署),DIAC(澳大利亚移民局)以及美国研究生管理协会授权并认可。

  接受PTE 学术英语考试成绩的还有119家 GMAC联盟学校, 包括:哈佛、斯坦福、伦敦商学院LBS、巴黎高等商学院HEC、西班牙IESE商学院、西班牙ESADE商学院、意大利博科尼管理学院-SDA Bocconi等,包括他们在中国开设的分校,如欧洲工商管理学院(INSEAD,含上海学校)、弗拉瑞克-鲁汶-根特管理学院Vlerick Leuven-Gent、中欧商学院。目前在中国国内认可的院校有中欧商学院、上海交通大学以及弗拉瑞克-鲁汶-根特管理学院Vlerick Leuven-Gent北京分校。

  David Booth:PTE Academic is designed for non-native English speaking students who want to study in an English-speaking academic environment or need to prove their language ability as part of their visa application.

  At the time of this interview, PTE Academic is recognized by over 2600 programs worldwide. Over 85% of universities in the UK recognize this test, of which 75% belong to the UK Russell Group. Chinese test takers may not know the Russell group that well. It is similar to the Ivy League in theUSA, a group or a league comprising prestigious universities and colleges. At the same time, PTE Academic is recognized by over 1500 programs in the USA.

  In addition to higher education institutions, PTE Academic is accepted by the UK Border Agency for Tier 2 and Tier 4 (student) visas. Recently, it was also approved by the Australian Department of Citizenship and Immigration (DIAC) for student visas.

The recognising institutions in China currently include:ChinaEuropeInternationalBusinessSchool, ShanghaiJiaoTongUniversity and VlerickLeuvenGentManagementSchool (Beijing).

  主持人:谢谢,刚才之所以谈到PTE学术英语考试的认可院校,是因为有很多中国学生选择出国留学,他们带出国留学选择目前的托福、雅思等英语考试。我们接下来想问一下David,PTE学术英语考试特点是什么?他与传统留学英语考试区别在哪儿?

  SINA Host:Thank you. As we know, test takers can use their PTE Academic scores to apply for their overseas studies. But in the past few years, students in China usually took TOEFL or IELTS. We have a question for David here: What makes PTE Academic different from traditional tests?

  David Booth我们考试有很多特点,其中安全性是头一位的,我们采取生物识别系统,无纸化考试等等一系列措施,确保考试是安全的。同时,相对于其他的考试我们提供一系列的分数,学生成绩单上有11个分数,总分、四项交流技能分,还有六项拓展技能分。我们考试相对于需要的时间是最短的,三个小时就能完成,完全是计算机阅卷,计算机给分,这将大大有利于减少人工判分的主观因素,从而能够客观公正地评判考生的英语语言能力。
