PTE Personal Introduction

Hello friends, I hope you have been doing well! In this blog post, we are going to talk about the first task on the PTE Academic and that is, PTE Personal Introduction.

Why is PTE Personal Introduction part important?

PTE does not give you any score for attempting the Personal Introduction task. However, it is important to do well om PTE Personal Introduction because the audio file of your response will be sent to the admissions officers of colleges and universities that you are applying to. So, consider this as your first chance to create positive impression in front of admissions officers of universities.

Before we delve into further details, let us see how the test screen may look like:

What to speak during PTE Personal Introduction

As suggested on the test screen, it makes sense to speak about one or more of the following:

  • The reason for taking the PTE Academic
  • Your reason of studying or settling abroad

Also, if time permits, you can talk more about your interests. You can even elaborate on why you need to learn English and get professionally assessed on it.
