What is PET?

Practical English for everyday use

Every year, thousands of people who want to use English to improve their work, study and travel prospects prepare for Cambridge English: Preliminary.
The test includes exactly the same tasks and question types as Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools.
For both tests, candidates need to use English in everyday situations. The only difference is that Cambridge English: Preliminary uses topics and content that is more likely to be of interest to candidates who have left school and may be working.
The exam shows that you can:
Understand the main points of straightforward instructions or public announcements;
Deal with most of the situations you might meet when travelling as a tourist in an English-speaking country;
Ask simple questions and take part in factual conversations in a work environment;
Write letters/emails or make notes on familiar matters.
