Dreams in Mind, Future in Hand – Pearson PTE Launched a New Brand Video to Help Dreams Set Sail

Beijing, 4 May 2023 – As we have the chance to embrace the world again, more young people are eager to seize new opportunities, explore the surprises of the unknown, travel to other parts of the world, and experience a different life. English language tests are often the first step toward fulfilling their aspirations.

Pearson PTE, a globally well-recognized English language test, released its new brand video and tagline – “Dreams in Mind, Future in Hand” on the International Youth Day. Yang Jiacheng, a popular English learning blogger, has also been revealed as the new PTE ambassador, who encourages test takers and other young people to bravely embrace their dreams and develop an exciting and limitless future.

When Pearson PTE first started its #Your uncertain dreams# campaign on social media, it received heartfelt and inspiring dreams from test-takers and young people. Some said, “I'm finally determined to get my driver’s license! In the past, I found all kinds of excuses to put myself off, but this time a change is underway!” Some said “I don’t have many dreams. Still, one is to pass the language test. Gap years may not sound hard to those who have clear goals, but for those who are preparing and hope to pass the exams, it is way too painful.” Others say, “There can be times when you feel lost and unsure of what you want. But if you give it some thought, you’ll realize that your efforts simply aren’t sufficient. My next step is to move towards my original aspiration!”

“We feel moved to see how young people fight hard to achieve their dreams despite confusion and uncertainty,” said Diana Dai, Director of Marketing for English Learning, Pearson Greater China, “Pearson PTE hopes to build test-takers confidence to achieve their dreams as they face the exciting yet uncertain dream of studying abroad.”

“We invite Mr. Yang Jiacheng to be our PTE ambassador in the hopes of offering test-takers all-around support on social media platforms and in other places where they expect our help and to build a bridge for them to realize their dreams. Through joint and concrete efforts, we will help them turn their ‘uncertain dreams’ into a certain and clear future”, Diana said.
