I can hear an extra word in some of these audios but they are not actually there when you check the answer. is it only me?
My question is that if i do not understand/recognize the repeat sentence first half part and the second half part is understood and i speak it without first half part during repeat sentence then could it be valid in exam for marking?
Full Sentence is “It was evident that Prince Andrew was not interested in such abstract conversation”
First Half:- It was evident that Prince Andrew
Second Half: -was not interested in such abstract conversation.
Two marks if at least 50% of words in the response from the prompt in the correct sequence
One mark if less than 50% of words in the response from the prompt in the proper sequence
I have been practising speaking from youtube videos too but the sentences there are too long to remember. how long are the repeat sentences in actual test?? are the ones listed here standards because I can doing quite well with the material you have posted.
Generally sentences are 3-9 seconds long
Correct me if I’m wrong for the speaking part of PTE. This is for the information of everybody. I had a test a couple of weeks ago, and I’ll tell you I did not ace everything. So basically, it wasn’t a perfect performance. I missed to repeat a whole sentence and probably missed some words as well with the other sentences. I wasn’t great as well with the “describe image” nor with the “re-tell lecture”. I stuttered a bit, and sometimes would totally be speechless. To my surprise, I got 90. Why and how? I don’t know. My theory is, PTE makes partial scoring and provides an acceptable margin of error for every candidate. Meaning, you don’t need to be perfect to get 90.
wow that is very surprising! r u a native english speaker?
i think in your case you have done perfectly others questions of this task.
how did you do that? I want to bring 90 or 79+. please say how to bring?
I took my PTE exam last Friday. I got one question for you, for example, when they allocated 40 sec to repeat sentences, read loud, retell lecture etc, but I have done within 20-30 sec and went on to do next question instead of the computer doing it by itself. Do you think my voice was recorded? I am really worried. Thank you for your help.
Yes, your voice gets recorded. You need not worry about it
Thank you for your reply! I still didn’t receive my PTE score. Its more than 5 working days. Should I be worried?
No, sometimes it takes time. Contact customer support
Phill, did you got that?
Hi I’m using google speech to text for practicing and most of my plural words are coming as singular (like governments = government).
1. Will that be considered as a wrong word?
2. Is google text to speech a good way to practice?
Thanks a lot for such amazing practice material!
It is counted as the wrong word if use governments instead of the government. Yes, if it is a fairly good way.
I have one more question. Does PTE check word to word in Repeat sentence & Write from dictation part?
Example: Q: I like PTE tutorial so much.
And In answer, I will write or speak “I like PTE so much” .
So what would be an assessment in this case?
in which way it will compare the answer 1 or 2.
I like PTE tutorial so much
1)I(right) like(right) PTE(right) so(wrong-it should be tutorial) much(wrong-it should be so)
2) I(right) like(right) PTE(right) so(right) much(right) — 1 point deducted as “Tutorial” word is missing.
3 marks if all words in the response from the prompt in the correct sequence
2 marks if at least 50% of words in the response from the prompt in the correct
1 mark if less than 50% of words in the response from the prompt in the correct
0 Almost nothing from the prompt in the response
Write from dictation
1 mark for each correct word spelled correctly
0 mark for each incorrect or misspelled word
I have practiced all repeat sentence exercise. In many sentences, I observed that In Many sentences some words like (He/That/The/her/to) are extremely difficult to recognize/understand/catch while listening and links got broken of a particular sentence. It will be the same case in EXAM :(.
If yes then any suggestions to improve it.
Will it be the same case in EXAM? 🙁 **
The audio quality of PTE Exam is much better. We are even trying to improve it
Thanks a lot. This Website is very helpful :). Awesome work.
Are these real exam questions?
Many of them are repeated questions, others are just practice tests
