PTE - Read Aloud: Tips & Strategies That Work

For the read aloud section of PTE, here are some tips to help you sail through:

  1. Start reading the text before the microphone opens - pronounce difficult words
  2. Understand the text - you can only deliver the text convincingly if you understand what you have read
  3. Take a deep breath before speaking - this will help you speak clearly
  4. Speak at a natural rate, you will have enough time but always keep your eyes on the timer
  5. Imagine that you are speaking to an audience and that you need them to understand what you are reading
  6. Speak out loud - don't speak softly
  7. Continue reading even if you make a mistake.
  8. Use the punctuations to guide how you read.
