Here are some useful things to do in a PTE Speaking Describe Image test that we learnt from our real experiences:
- Say NO to filler sounds and crutch words: “Well, like, it is literally human nature to rely on like, crutch words, like uh… uhm.., yeah, but you know, it is absolutely annoying to do so, like seriously, annoying!” Yes, that is indeed a good example of what you should NOT say in Describe Image section particularly and in PTE Speaking Test generally.
- Minimize grammar mistakes: any mistake on grammar can affects your score negatively. You do not need to use complex sentence structure if it is too confusing for you. Likewise, just stick to the 3 most basic tenses as in general, that is all needed to describe an image.
- Take notes: Make good use of the Erasable Notepad. Write down the main points as well as some supporting ideas and use it to assist you while recording the answer.
- Manage your time wisely: You should not speak for a full 40 seconds. Limit it down a few seconds so that you can cover all the main points.
That’s it, good luck on the test!
