Study in the UK – January Intake 2024
Well begun is half done!!
Weightage is very high. I.e. 44.5 for 6 RA. It will give you 22.4 in Speaking and 22.3 in Reading too.
Speak in a same way as you will be going to speak after recorder opens.
You have two options:
1. Speak like newsreader:
If you can pronounce each words clearly with a bit of high punch, you can adopt this strategy. However, make sure not to fumble much, and have monotonous rhythm in your fluency in your speaking as like newsreader.
It eliminates necessity of pauses and intonations. All you get is good score for maintaining fluency.
2. Speak like native speaker:
Generally native speaker uses natural pauses and intonations to explain things in much better way.
For that you should understand concept of Subject Verb and Object (SVO).
Speaking this Way Will Get You Good Scores from content, oral fluency and pronunciation. Speaking with a bit slower speed but with a bit high punch will provide you support in speaking out uncomfortable word as well.
Any word in English cannot be completed without SVO. It means any sentence in English should have at least a subject, a verb and an object to complete the sentence.
In order to speak a sentence, you need to speak subject with a bit of high tone followed by a small natural pause and then continue speaking verb and object part together with decreasing intonation. That’s how native speakers manage to speak fluently and effectively by taking correct pausing at correct places. That enables them to inhale correctly and that’s why they seem more fluent in their speaking.
No. Absolutely not. You only need to speak at your natural constant speed throughout the reading. Fluency score will be high if it has clear voice without any fumble in speech. Intonation will be an added key to ace high score.
For those candidates, who appear in PTE Academic Exam first time, they need some prior homework about the exam procedure and the environment in order to acquaint themselves. It seems obvious to everyone, but let me tell you one thing. This simple chunk of advice can make your life easy. It can drastically boost your confidence especially, during the start of the exam where every human being can have naturally a bit of high anxiety.
As I mentioned earlier, try to open up your vocal codes a bit by practicing random 10-15 Read Aloud. This will help you face the very first question type of PTE exam and can release your anxiety level. Initial 5 minutes are critical till your anxiety calms down.
You may feel your exam room as a fish market. As soon as your exam starts, all candidates in a way will start Read Aloud at their own natural pace. It may highly possible that your mind gets distracted by such incessant noise.
You need not to focus on other’s voice and activities around you. The microphone you are given in exam will have good noise cancellation. It means it can supress all unwanted noise around you and will record your voice with great precision.
