Here are some tips according to each type of questions to help you prepare for the speaking section of the PTE exam.

Read Aloud

  • Rising your tone at the beginning and falling tone at the end of the sentence will make the sentences sound authentic.
  • If you realize you made a mistake, continue speaking and don’t stop.
  • From day 1 of preparation, practice with different tongue-twisters every day until the exam day.

Repeat Sentence

  • Listen with closed eyes and memorize the sentence.
  • There is no beep at the end, so just start speaking after the clip ends.
  • If you can’t manage to remember the whole sentence, at least focus on the keywords and repeat those.

Describe Image

  • Start with words like illustrate, elucidates, depicts, etc.
  • Notice whether it’s bar-chart, line-graph or pie-chart. Line graphs have ‘timeline’, pie charts have ‘slices’ and bar charts compare.
  • Make use of the following words – on the left-hand side, on the right side, next to, below/bottom, above, at the top, foreground, background etc.
  • Try finishing in 30–35 seconds and don’t leave incomplete recorded sentences.
